How to use the U.S. Gold Coin Melt Value Calculator.

Enter the total quantity of coins for each type of gold coin in the entire coin lot. Enter your numbers in the corresponding text boxes to the right of each gold coin description (blue link). You could also just click on the gold coin's picture, or its link, to increase the value in its text box by 1. The calculator will automatically update the Total Gold Value (in red), whenever the number of gold coins has been changed.

The Total Gold Value is computed based on the U.S. Dollar amount shown in the Gold Price text box. You could also use one of the other major world currencies available in the drop-down menu located underneath the prices. The default price is updated frequently during normal trading hours. You can adjust the Gold Price to reflect the amount you'd prefer to pay per ounce for the gold content in any assortment of U.S. gold coins. This can help you to figure the maximum bid you could post for an online gold coin auction.

In addition to the Total Gold Value (in red), the gold coin calculator will also figure a Bid and Ask price based on the value shown in the Price Spread text box. This value defaults to 5%, but can be changed if you like. The gold Bid and Ask prices are displayed in the lower area of the gold results box, for those who would like to use them.

The U.S. gold coin calculator indicates total gold value and total gold content based on the measure of gold contained in uncirculated gold coins that do not have any wear. A circulated gold coin, which does show some wear, will not contain as much gold. You might want to enter a percentage of that wear in the "Amount of Wear" text box. An amount greater than the default value of 0 (zero), will adjust the total gold value and total gold weight results accordingly.
