How to use the Kennedy 40% Silver Half Dollar Melt Value Calculator.

First decide what method you will be using to indicate the amount of 40% silver half dollars to calculate. You can enter your amounts either by the total quantity of 40% halves, the total face value of your 40% half dollars, or by the total weight of your Kennedy 40% silver half dollar collection. You could also use a combination of methods depending on how your half dollars are stored.

The first option, showing the picture of a single Kennedy 40% silver half dollar, is for entering an exact count of half dollars. Use the text box on the right to enter a number representing the total quantity of 40% halves that you wish to know the silver melt value of. As an alternative, you can simply click on the 40% half 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.

The next option below is for entering the amount of 40% silver half dollars by rolls of 20. This has the same effect as entering a value of 20 in the single Kennedy 40% silver half dollar option text box. This option is nice if you like to store your 40% halves in rolls or coin tubes. If you received your 40% silver half dollars already rolled, then be sure to inspect them to determine that they are all of the 40% silver variety. If not, then your calculation will be inaccurate. This calculator is only designed for measuring the silver melt value of Kennedy 40% silver half dollars minted from 1965-1970.

Your next five options are for entering your amounts by the face value of your 40% silver half dollars. There are $1, $10, $50, $100, and $1,000 options each representing 2, 20, 100, 200, and 2,000 half dollars respectively. This option works well if your 40% halves are stored in canvas bags. You can also use decimal values for partial bags. For example, a value of 1.5 entered into the $100 Face Value Text Box would be equal to a $150 face value.

Your final four options allow you to calculate the melt value of your Kennedy 40% silver half 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 40% silver half 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 shown 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 alter the Silver Price to specify the price you would like to pay per ounce for the silver content in any quantity of U.S. 40% silver halves. This will help you in deciding the maximum bid you might submit for an online 40% silver half dollar auction.

The 40% half dollar calculator informs you of total silver value and total silver content depending on the amount of silver contained in uncirculated 40% half dollars that haven't any wear. A circulated 40% half that does show some wear will not have as much silver. You have the option to indicate a percentage of that wear in the "Amount of Wear" text box. An amount larger than the default of 0 (zero), will reduce the total silver value and total silver weight results proportionally.
