Old 5c and 10c collectors value?

Hi there me again with a silly question for the experts.

 

My aunt gave me two bags of coins that she found while throwing away some the rubbish from the younger days, the coins are very old nickel 5c and 10c coins. What I would like to know is whether these coins are worth collecting, I saw some graded ones today the the Jhb coin show but unless these coins are worth anything Rand wise I do not really see the point in keeping them. I am sure that I can get hold of all the missing years to make a nice set but to be honest these coins do not really fall with in the spectrum of the coins I collect.

I have found some possible uses for these coins; 1) use them as spacers and washers in my workshop, 2) use them for targets the next time I go shooing with my brother and 3) I can use them a metal detecting targets once I complete the metal detector project I have been working on (I can buy a proper one yet).

So anyway any opinions would be appreciated.

I have the following dates for the 10 cent coins.

Hi

 

If i'm not mistaken the 1965 coin with South Africa in Afrikaans is worth a little bit. I don't know the details but i know those are supposed to be worth collecting.
