Rare Coins And Their Value

Aug 26, 2008
If you are a coin collector or just someone who has one or a few rare coins, you are probably very interested in their dollar value. Determining the value of a coin is something that many people find interesting. There are several ways to find out if your coin or coin collection is just a unique one or one that is worth a substantial amount of money.

The best place to start looking to determine the value of your coins, is a coin collecting guide. However, the number or rare coins is so huge that there is not one guide book that covers all the coins that are out there today.

Fortunately, there is a collecting price guide that is geared to a specific type of coin, such as those for collectors who are interested in old rare coins.

You can use the internet to help you track down which collecting price guide is appropriate for you to use. Simply type in the type of coin you want to research and then add "coin collecting price guide". The searches you find to you will probably direct you to the exact collecting price guide you need.

Also, on the internet there are quite a few auction websites such as EBay, where you can get an idea of how rare your coins might be. ( Hint : If you see hundreds of coins just like yours on an auction site, you may assume that your coin is not extremely rare).

Another way to determine the value of a coin is going to a reputable coin dealer. If you get the sense that the coin dealer is anxious to buy your coins, then that might indicate that your coin is valuable. You should try to visit at least two coin dealers rather than just relying on one.

Whether you are a professional coin collector or just a beginner, it is a good idea to stay informed about the value of your collection. As time passes there is a good chance that the value of your coins could go up or down.

If you have updated information from collecting price guides and advice from reputable coin dealers, you can keep track of how valuable your coin collection is.

Make sure that you stay current with the value of your coin collection. If you decide to sell your collection in the future, it is a good idea to know how much they are truly worth so that you are not cheated.
