1903 United States/Filipinas twenty centavos is it rare ? Would it be worth sending out for grading?

I wouldn’t get that one graded because of the condition. It’s not the rarest coin, but still a very cool one. it has a mintage of 5,350,231. It is a 90% silver coin with 4$ of silver. I would put the value around 8-16$ based on recent ebay sales, and the condition its in.

From costs of grading alone, its not worth it. It is a nice coin though.

No it is not. Always use a price guide or sold auctions to see if a coin is worth enough money above the grading fees and membership.

Here you go. Scroll down to find circulated examples like yours.

The ones you saw in Heritage were likely the S mint for this year (more rare than this one) as well as being in MS condition instead of circulated like yours.
