What are your coins worth? Are they worth more than face value to someone who is coin collecting?
Here Are Some Coins to Look For:
Pennies – 1958 & Earlier. On average these are worth about 2 to 3 cents per coin, but pull out all dates 1909-1916 plus 1931’s and 1955’s (some of these can be worth a lot more!) Some Key Dates to look for: 1909-S, 1914-D, 1922 with No “D” under the date, 1931-S, 1955 Doubled Date (date will be boldly doubled, one on top of the other).
Nickels – 1938 to 1945 (Large Mintmark above Monticello on reverse designates Silver). 1938 & Earlier (Buffalo Nickels, Liberty Nickels & Shield Nickels are all worth more than face value - about .20c per to start.)
Dimes – 1964 & Earlier. These are all 90% silver. The majority of dimes dated 1965 – 2018 are worth face value. There are silver proof issues, but you generally won't find those in change etc...
Quarters – 1964 & Earlier. 90% silver and worth much more than face value.
Statehood Quarters – Statehood quarters are worth Face Value (you can spend them!) unless they are in U.S. Mint-issued packaging (proof sets, mint sets, etc…).
Half Dollars – 1964 & Earlier. 90% silver and worth much more than face value.
Half Dollars – 1965 to 1970. 40% silver and worth more than face value.
Dollars – 1935 & Earlier. All of these are worth money and start at about $13.00 in 2018!
Dollars – 1971 to 2013 – All dollars issued 1971 through 2013 are worth Face Value – These include the Susan B. Anthony dollars, Sacagawea Golden Dollars and Presidential Golden Dollars. (Unless they are in U.S. Mint-issued packaging.)
All U.S. Mint Packaged Products – U.S. Proof Sets, Mint Sets, & Commemorative Dollars and half dollars (1892-2018) etc… are worth more than face value.
All U.S. Coins Dated in the 1700-1800’s are worth more than Face Value!
Paper Money/Currency – All Silver Certificates ($1, $5, $10 Blue Seals), all U.S. Notes (Red Seal $2 & $5 Notes) and anything Series 1928 and Earlier. All Large Size (1923 & Earlier) U.S. Notes have strong premiums over face value.
$500 and $1000 notes are all worth at least 10% over face value and sometimes much more depending on the condition.
