I have owned my first Coronado II since 1971 when I bought it brand new. It is candy apple red (the bright red). Since I have acquired a Coronado II 12-string, and a second Coronado II fiesta red. I proudly proclaim myself a Fender man, and to a small degree collect vintage Fender instruments. The answer to your question: I have been researching values for a few years online to keep abreast of the value of my instruments. I have seen Coronados online for anywhere from $400 to as high as $1800 depending on model and year manufactured.
For your information and comparison, my candy apple red Coronado II was purchased in 1971 for $425 and within a month I added a Bigsby Vibrato unit to it for another $125. Today that same guitar is found online for sale in the range of $1200-1500.
Now the kicker: the value of a Coronado, from an avowed Coronado player, changes from person to person. Many vintage guitar dealers tell me that the Coronado series just isn't as valuable as the Gibson 335 series, and the comparable Guild and Gretsch thinline acoustics.

Everything is original on mine.
Of those musicians who like to love the Coronado series like myself, it seems that none of them want any other thinline series guitar regardless of brand, me included. But, to each his own! I got mine in a trade, but there was a price tag in the case that said $900.
It's a 72 Coronado II, red, in good but not great condition - no damage, just playwear and checking. Pedalsteelman makes an excellent point about the value differing from owner to owner - some hate them and would trade them for anything with strings, and some love them. I like mine - nice warm tone and great (I think) looks. I think the wildwood and antigua finishes are the ones that are much more expensive. I know these things came with a really nice luggage-quality case, (although mine is falling apart). The inclusion of a case might factor heavily into the price as well.
The highest prices I've seen have been on E-bay. Autocertificazione Stato Di Famiglia Storico Modello Pdf Writer on this page. Keep checking CL and local shops - there's a deal out there somewhere.
