Coins today aren't made of silver like they used to be. As a result, you have constantly rising prices for old silver coins. Coin collectors are always ready to collect silver coins because of they're rareness and long-term investment potential. It's not always easy to find the exact value of a coin because of how hard each coin is to find.
Things You Will Needpen and paper
Step 1Find the value but look online first. If you go directly to a coin collector, they might not offer you what a coin is worth. They might realize that you are not that savvy in collecting and take advantage of your lack of knowledge. It happens every day and people can easily prevent this fraud with thorough research. Go through search engines and look for coin collector websites that list all the values of each coin. These websites also offer searches where you can find your specific coin.
Step 2Contact collectors. You don't have to sell your coin collection to a collector. Once you know the value of your coin, you will be prepared to approach a collector about possibly buying your coin collection. Bring any official documents related to your collection that can verify that the collection is authentic and that the coin is real.
Step 3Don't be intimidated. You will need to negotiate with possible buyers for your coin collection. Don't be intimidated by large amounts of cash, your coins will only go up in value. If you know your coins are worth more money, don't be manipulated into taking the cash now instead of waiting for the best possible offer.
Step 4Sell online. Sites like, eBay and Craigslist offer the users the ability to buy and sell many items. These items include coin collections and silver. It's a good idea to go online to see if you can find out how much your coins are selling for. Post clear pictures of your coin collection and wait for a bid.
Step 5Set buy now and bid minimums. On eBay and similar bidding websites, you can set a cap on the minimum required amount before your collection is sold. You can hold out and wait for the right bidder to come along. An avid collector who has every other coin but the one you have, and is prepared to pay the maximum.
