The U.S. Silver Coin Melt Value Calculator, located below, can be used to determine
the total silver value and total silver content of a single United States issued
silver coin or a combination of several different types and quantities of U.S.
silver coins. The silver coins calculator only shows what the silver content in U.S.
coins is worth (intrinsic value), and will not show any numismatic (collector) or
base metal value.
Use the silver coin calculator to figure how much the silver in U.S. coins is worth,
or to set a max bid on a silver coin auction based on the U.S. coins silver content.

How to use the U.S. Silver Coin Melt Value Calculator.
Enter the total quantity of coins for each type of silver coin in the entire coin
lot. Enter your numbers in the corresponding text boxes to the right of each silver
coin description (blue link). As an alternative, you can simply click on the silver
coin's picture, or its link, to increase the value in its text box by 1. The
silver coin value calculator will automatically update the Total Silver Value
(in red), whenever a change is made to the number of silver coins.
The Total Silver Value is calculated based on the U.S. Dollar amount specified in
the Silver 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 change the Silver
Price to represent the amount you'd like to pay per ounce for the silver content
in any assortment of U.S. silver coins. This will help you to figure the maximum bid
you could enter for an online silver coin auction.
In addition to the Total Silver Value (in red), the junk silver coin value calculator
will also figure a Bid and Ask price based on the value displayed in the Price Spread
text box. This value defaults to 5%, but can be changed if you wish. The silver Bid
and Ask prices are shown in the lower tier of the silver results box, for those who
have an interest in them.
The U.S. silver coin calculator figures total silver value and total silver content
based on the amount of silver contained in uncirculated silver coins that have no wear.
A circulated silver coin, which does have some wear, will not contain as much silver.
You may want to indicate a percentage of that wear in the "Amount of Wear"
text box. A value greater than the default of 0 (zero), will reduce the total silver
value and total silver weight results accordingly.
