Common Sterling Silver Items That Are Valuable to Sell or Collect

Fist Full of Dollars

With the price of silver remaining relatively consistent, there is a lot of money to be made by selling your sterling silver. You might have a collection of valuable sterling silver of which you are not even aware. Take the following items to your precious metal dealer to learn their true value:

  • Flatware
    Sterling silver flatware is always a great investment. Real sterling silver is 92.5% real silver mixed with other metals. Look on your flatware to see if you can find the word “sterling,” the number .925, or 925/1000 to ensure that it is real. If you have true sterling silver, it is a great investment that will not lose its value over time.
  • Hollowware
    This tableware can be worth a lot of money if it is true sterling. Since it is built to be a durable product, it can easily be passed down through generations. Precious metal dealers are usually interested in purchasing hollowware, which is why it’s such a great investment.
  • Ingots
    Although they need to be shaped into something else to be useful to a consumer, ingots are actually quite valuable to a precious metal and coin dealer. Bring your ingot collection in for an appraisal to learn it true value.
  • Medals
    The amount of silver used in a medal is significant enough to make a big impact on its overall value. Starting a collection of silver medals is a great way to reap the benefits of their value.
