What Might Actually Determine The Value Of Your Coin Collection

Aug 17, 2007
There are many factors that will need to be taken into consideration in order to determine the value of your coin collection. It is often determined by four factors: -

1. How many of the coins are around?
2. How many collectors are looking for that particular coin?
3. What condition the coins are in? This is most important where many coins are concerned.
4. The bullion or exchange value of the coin in question? Either a gold or silver coin will not normally sell for a great deal less than its melt value.

One of the best ways of valuing your coin collection is by using a coin dealer. These are experts in their field and they are likely to stay abreast of prices, auctions, information and news related to coin collecting. Also as these people are probably coin collectors themselves they will often be willing to sit down with you and discuss the coins you already have and how to improve on your collection.

Another great way of determining the value of your coin collection value is through blue books. There are several available that contain complete lists of every coin ever stuck including their current values. These books are published every year and will list the market value of each coin year by year as well as minting location and condition. But unfortunately with this method the prices shown in the books are fixed once it has been published. But at least these books provide you with a good idea of just how much your coin collection is worth.

You could also take a look at the Internet. This is a great source of information thanks to the number of sites that now offer lists of coin values. The best thing about these sites is that they are very up to date and stay in touch with any developments that are occurring (however this will depend on the site that you visit). But as with anything it is always best if you visit a number of different sites in order to make sure that the information you are getting is correct. Also by looking at a few different sites you can get averages from several sources and so avoid getting bad information from one site that is forgetting to update the information it provides.

But at the end of the day the value of your coin collection will actually depend on what someone is willing to pay for it. So if you really want to see the value of your coin collection in real terms then take a look and see just what people are willing to pay.
