What makes a coin valuable?
Several important factors must be considered when placing a value on your coins and collection.
The single biggest mistake: Your collection will instantly be worth much less if the coins have been cleaned in any way! Please do not clean them!
Gold and silver content : Regardless of condition, Gold and Silver coins are worth a significant premium above face value. Nice uncirculated gold and silver coins often sell for premiums much higher than gold or silver content value. Silver dimes, quarter, half dollars and silver dollars 1964 and early are 90% pure silver. Kennedy half dollars from 1965-1970 are 40% pure silver.
Specific dates and mint marks : Age is not necessarily an indicator of value, but some specific dates are much rarer and move valuable than others. For example, an 1879-S Morgan Dollar is worth $24 in very good condition but an 1893-S Morgan Dollar in very good condition is worth nearly $2,000.
Demand. Like all collectibles, demand for all types of coins varies with the collectors who seek them.
Condition. Original, unaltered, uncleaned coins in good condition will always be worth more than cleaned, poorly kept coins.
Eye Appeal. Luster, brightness, and toning may all contribute to enhanced value.
Varieties, Errors, Mistakes. The coin world is full of exciting oddities. Some are rare and highly desirable. You may
