Appraising the Value of a Coin

Whether you have been collecting coins for a long time or you are just getting your collection started, you have probably wondered how to determine how much certain coins are worth. Watch this video to learn what goes into appraising the value of a coin.

It is important for every collector to know that gold and silver coins are almost always worth more than their face value. Keep in mind that a coin’s age does not necessarily make it more valuable. Rare coins, such as ones with imprinting errors, tend to be worth more because so few exist. While you can try to estimate the value of a coin using printed guides, you’ll get a much more accurate appraisal from a coin dealer.

Let the experts at Coins of the Realm in Gaithersburg tell you how much your coins are worth. Contact us at (301) 637-6220 or visit our website to learn more about the appraisal process, including our free in-store verbal appraisal.
