    • Hi there, thats great. You will want to make sure that your coin is graded in order for it to qualify for a high market value. If it is graded as proof, you should try to list it on BidorBuy, Gumtree and Facebook Marketplace. If it is only UNC (Uncirculated) then it could be worth around R100. Good luck!
