The U.S. Coin Rolls Calculator, available below, will determine the total base metal value
and content of a roll of modern United States circulating coins or of many different types
and quantities of U.S. circulating coin rolls. The coin rolls calculator will only compute
what the underlying base metal content of the coins in your rolls is worth (intrinsic value),
and will not show you any numismatic (collector) value of those coins.
Use the coin rolls calculator to figure out how much the base metal content in your roll
of coins is worth based on the daily spot price of the underlying metals.
You might also care to try one of several other calculators from the drop-down menu above.
For the values of single U.S. coins, use this
Coin Melt Value Calculator. For U.S. junk silver coins, there is the
Silver Coin Melt Value Calculator and, for its by-the-roll version, the
Silver Coin Rolls Melt Value Calculator.

How to use the U.S. Coin Rolls Calculator.
Enter the total number of rolls for each type of U.S. coin roll in the entire lot.
Enter your quantities in the corresponding text boxes to the right of each roll
description (blue link). As an alternative, you can simply click on the coin roll's
picture, or its link, to increase the value in its text box by 1. The calculator will
automatically update the Total Metal Value (in red), whenever a change is made
to the number of rolls.
To calculate a partial roll of coins, enter a decimal value in the appropriate text box.
For example, a value of 1.5 will equal 1½ rolls of coins. Do take into account the
number of coins in a particular coin roll. A value of 1.5 in a dime roll text box would
equal 75 total dimes, since there are 50 dimes in a roll. A value of 1.5 in a quarter
roll text box would equal 60 total quarters, since there are 40 quarters in a roll.
The Total Metal Value is tallied based on the U.S. Dollar amount displayed in the
Copper, Manganese, Nickel, and Zinc price text boxes. You
could also use one of the other currencies available in the drop-down menu
located underneath the prices. The copper, nickel and zinc values are derived from the
price per pound of those metals, while the manganese value is figured at the price per
kilogram. The default price is updated frequently during normal trading hours. Any
of the Base Metal Prices can be altered to values of your choice.
The U.S. coin rolls calculator denotes total base metal value and total base metal
content corresponding to the amount of respective base metals contained in uncirculated
coins without any wear. If your coins are worn from circulation, they will not consist
of as much metal. There is an option to fill in a percentage of that wear in the
"Amount of Wear" text box. A number greater than the default of 0 (zero),
will reduce the total metal value and total metal weight results proportionally.
