I recently sold some very old ones. 1862, 1888, and a few other 1800's. Of course, they were all silver. One sold for $125 and the others were worth between $60-75. I still have a lot, but not looking to sell them.

My DS's have rolls of Kennedy quarters, all silver, but they're not worth much at all. Maybe in the next 50 years they will be.

American Eagles are worth at a minimum their Silver content value, which is 1 oz. there may be some numismatic value as well, but you'd need to speak to a numismatist for that


American eagles are bullion coins, but are also legal tender. I would not recommend using an American eagle to buy a coffee however. Given today's silver price, they are a minimum $20 or so in value.


The American eagles are a little bit bigger than a silver dollar from the early 1900s. This is because the silver dollar was only 90% silver while the American eagle is .999 silver and 1 oz exactly.
