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

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

The first four options are for entering an exact count of U.S. 90% silver half dollars. You can choose from the Barber Silver Half Dollar, the Walking Liberty Silver Half Dollar, the Franklin Silver Half Dollar or the 1964 Kennedy 90% Silver Half Dollar. Use the text box to the right of each silver half dollar description (blue link) to enter a number representing the total quantity of silver half dollars that you wish to know the silver melt value of. As an alternative, you can simply click on the silver 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 U.S. 90% silver half dollars by rolls of 20. This has the same effect as entering a value of 20 in any of the single silver half dollar option text boxes. This option is nice if you like to store your 90% half dollars in rolls or coin tubes. If you received your silver half dollars already rolled, then be sure to inspect them to determine that they are all of the 90% silver variety. If not, then your calculation will be inaccurate. This calculator is only designed for measuring the silver melt value of U.S. 90% silver half dollars minted from 1892-1964.

Your next five options are for entering your amounts by the face value of your 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 90% half 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 $50 Face Value Text Box would be equal to a $75 face value.

Your final four options allow you to calculate the melt value of your U.S. 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 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 calculated based on the U.S. Dollar amount declared 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 may change the Silver Price to represent the amount you would care to pay per ounce for the silver content in any lot of U.S. 90% silver half dollars. This will help you in figuring the maximum bid you could provide for an online silver half dollar auction.

The U.S. silver half dollar calculator computes total silver value and total silver content relative to the amount of silver contained in uncirculated silver half dollars without any wear. If your half dollars have been worn from circulation, they will not include as much silver. You might want to enter a percentage of that wear in the "Amount of Wear" text box. A number greater than the default of 0 (zero), will adjust the total silver value and total silver weight results proportionally.
