Our Review on this item

The South African mint was in the mist of the global depression of 1931, so minting coins in silver was an expense they couldn't really afford, therefore a decision was made not to mint any silver coins for that year.

With the numismatic community putting pressure on the mint on behalf of collectors, the mint was persuaded to mint a small number of silver coinage. This explains in a nutshell why most silver coinage of 1931 is scarce and valuable.

With a mintage figure of only 128, the 1931 tickey being the most publicized of the lot, making the tickey a household name, almost everyone knows how scarce and valuable the tickey is.

62 tickeys was minted in proof condition and a whopping low 66 for general circulation, which I suspect never was sent to the banks, but instantly collected by mint employees and sold to their VIP customers.

What is the 1931 tickey worth today? depending on the condition of the coin you could be in for a lovely surprise, you might look at anything from R30 000 to R75 000.

Our Valuation : R 75000.00
