The Canadian Silver Coin Melt Value Calculator, located below, will figure the total
silver value and total silver content of a single Canadian issued silver coin or a
combination of several different types and quantities of Canadian junk silver coins.
The Canadian silver coin calculator only shows what the silver in Canadian coins is
worth (intrinsic value), and will not show any numismatic (collector) or copper value.
Use the Canadian silver coin calculator to learn how much the silver in your coins is
worth, or to set a max bid on a Canadian silver coin auction based on its melt value.
You might also want to check out a few of the other calculators from the drop-down
menu above. For U.S. junk silver coins, try the
U.S. Silver Coin Melt Value Calculator. There is also a
Canadian Copper Penny Melt Value Calculator, and for your nickels, the
Canadian Nickel Melt Value Calculator.

How to use the Canadian Silver Coin Melt Value Calculator.
Enter the total quantity of coins for each type of Canadian silver coin in the entire
coin lot. Enter your numbers in the corresponding text boxes to the right of each
Canadian 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 Canadian coin 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 select Canadian Dollars or 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 Canadian silver coins. This will help you to
figure the maximum bid you could enter for an online Canadian silver coin auction.
In addition to the Total Silver Value (in red), the Canadian silver coin 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 Canadian silver coin calculator figures total silver value and total silver
content based on the amount of silver contained in uncirculated Canadian silver coins
that have no wear. A circulated Canadian 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.
