How to use the U.S. Silver Dollar Melt Value Calculator.

First decide what method you will be using to indicate the amount of U.S. 90% silver dollars to calculate. You can enter your amounts either by the total quantity of silver dollars, the total face value of your silver dollars, or by the total weight of your U.S. silver dollar collection. You could also use a combination of methods depending on how your silver dollars are stored.

The first two options are for entering an exact count of U.S. 90% silver dollars. You can choose from the Morgan Silver Dollar or the Peace Silver Dollar. Use the text box to the right of each silver dollar description (blue link) to enter a number representing the total quantity of silver dollars that you wish to know the silver melt value of. As an alternative, you can simply click on the silver dollar picture, or its link, to increase the value in its text box by 1. The calculator will automatically update the Total Silver Value (in red), whenever a change is made to the amounts in any of the text boxes.

Your next five options are for entering your amounts by the face value of your silver dollars. There are $1, $10, $50, $100, and $1000 options each representing 1, 10, 50, 100, and 1,000 silver dollars respectively. This option works well if your silver dollars are stored in canvas bags. You can also use decimal values for partial bags. For example, a value of 1.5 entered into the $10 Face Value Text Box would be equal to a $15 face value.

Your final four options allow you to calculate the melt value of your U.S. silver dollars by weighing them. You can choose to weigh by either ounces, pounds, grams, or kilograms. Just enter a whole number or decimal representing the total weight in the appropriate weight text box. If you are weighing your silver dollars inside a container or bag, be sure to subtract the weight of your container first. Do note that these are not Troy ounces or pounds. They are U.S. standard ounces and pounds (a.k.a. Avoirdupois).

The Total Silver Value is figured based on the U.S. Dollar amount visible 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. The Silver Price can be adjusted to reflect the price you would be inclined to pay per ounce for the silver content in any collection of U.S. 90% silver dollars. This can help you in deciding the maximum bid you might post for an online silver dollar auction.

The U.S. silver dollar calculator specifies total silver value and total silver content in regard to the measure of silver contained in uncirculated silver dollars that have not received any wear. If your silver dollars are worn from circulation, they will not contain as much silver. You may want to supply a percentage of that wear in the "Amount of Wear" text box. An entry greater than the default of 0 (zero), will lower the total silver value and total silver weight results proportionally.
