I have 15 Silver Dollar coins from 1986-2000. Does anyone know where I can find out how much they are worth? Is there a website I can go to or does anyone on here with coin collecting experience know?

What's My Coin Worth?

Seriously...anything later than the 70's era silver dollars are pretty much face value.

You have to go back pretty far to find coins that will fetch any serious money.

Well, in this day and age, something is only worth what somebody else will pay for it......

You did not mention if they are circulated, uncirculated or proof (mirror image, only struck once).....and each of these has varying degrees of quality... And if they are in holders, have bag marks on them, etc.... Coins can be uncirculated, but if they are held in bags, they scratch one another.....

However, the best thing to do is to procure a book called 'The Offical RED BOOK
A Guide Book of United States Coins'.... This book is red (LOL), coin collectors know it as the Red Book and is the known Bible for the coin world...mine is a few years old or else I'd try to help you out.......(sorry).... They are issued yearly....

If you don't want to buy the Red Book, (maybe your local library has a current issue), go to the Littleton Coin web site and see if they are selling any of those years and you can get a general idea of their net worth.....

I think that they were no longer "silver" dollars after 1964.

Real silver dollars, half dollars, quarters and dimes were made of 90% silver, the rest was copper. These were made upto the end of 1964. In 1965 for a while the Govt made some of these in limited quantity of sliver clad coins, and then converted them to what we have now, with the so called dollar coins made of other metals alloys of copper and brass.

Commemorative coins were made of junk and of .999 fine, and also clad in gold. Never 90%

If these are coins after 64, that were in more or less common circulation, and not bought in a coin shop with papers, chances are you have common junk coins. If there is a copper sheen on the coin edge, it for sure is worthless junk coinage worth only face value, because there is 0 silver in the coin.

I have know people that collected the US Bicentennial quarters, because they were made just one year, but these are junk coins too. 0 silver.

If you want to buy a fair scale and weigh these coins, in theory a new coin will weigh 1 Troy ounce, IF it is .999 silver.

No clad coins will.... Copper is not as heavy as silver.

The gold coins offered on tv are junk, a few grams at best in gold the base metal is junk.

With the dates as you state them, your best hope is these are collectors coins and will say .999 fine, or .999 on them, which were never circulated coins... These are 1 troy ounce ingots, and not minted by the Fed reserve.

If this is what you have then they are worth what ever Handy and Harmon says on a given day, which is reflected in Swagger post with kitco. Amex is another site, but they all match Handy and Harmon quotes for the day.

probably not great news huh?
