Bring Your Silver Dollar in for a Free Appraisal

Posted on September 1st, 2023 by Joe G

Bring Your Coin in for a Free Appraisal

If you have been thinking about bringing your silver dollar in for a free appraisal, make sure you take it to a reputable dealer you can trust – someone who understands all the variables that go into determining the value of a particular coin. Various factors affect a coin’s value, including these we have listed below. However, only a professional appraiser will be able to give you an accurate valuation.

Silver Dollars

Silver dollars, minted by the U.S. over the course of more than a century, have values that vary widely due to a combination of factors. Firstly, the intrinsic value of the metal itself plays a role; older coins made from purer silver will generally have a higher base value than newer ones made from less pure alloys. Secondly, the rarity of the coin is crucial. Coins produced in fewer numbers, or those from specific mints with lower production counts, can command higher prices. 

The condition of the coin is another determining factor; uncirculated coins or those in near-mint condition can be worth considerably more than their well-worn counterparts. Lastly, historical significance or unique design elements can also elevate the value of certain silver dollars. For example, the Morgan Silver Dollar and the Peace Silver Dollar are especially sought after by collectors, not just for their silver content but also for their design, history, and the particular years and mints in which they were produced.

Trusted Appraisers

So as you can see, just like any coin, the value of a silver dollar depends on several factors. And here’s a pro tip for all coin collectors out there – resist the urge to clean your tarnished coins; you might end up devaluing them! If you’re looking to bring your silver dollar in for a free appraisal, or if you have other valuable coins or jewelry you would like to have appraised, visit our trusted experts at Chicago Gold Gallery!

Customer Testimonial

Had a Great Experience

I have dealt in coins and metals since the 80s. Had dealings with many dealers. Got scammed by a few. Chicago Gold is the only one I would recommend to my family or friends. Have your valuables appraised by them before you sell.

I'll be back

Cashed in some silver coins and received a very fair exchange. Joe and Chris, were very friendly, and comfortable to deal with. Came back with some jewelry, and received a rough appraisal...again no pressure.
