View Full Version : Need some help with two coins.

13th July 2008, 18:16
Thanks in advance.

How much could i get for,
1st 1880 morgan dollar, no mint, kind of worn but not terribly bad
2nd 1922 peace dollar, mint D, worn but not terribly bad

Really not looking for melt value but how much a coin collector/coin shop would pay

Thanks :D

coinflation.com provides brief lists of coins with some greater collector value, their list for peace dollars is here: (scroll down)


If you go back to the main page and click on Morgan Dollar there will be a list on that page too, however they only have one listed for Morgans which seems incomplete.

Maybe $20-$30 for the Morgan & $15-$20 for the Peace, it really depends on how "worn" they are. If they are not too worn then get them professionally graded by PCGS or NGC and then you can get a more accurate value on them. Your best bet is probably not to sell them at all and wait until silver continues to soar. You would then probably get more for them for their melt value as opposed to their numismatic value.

Throw them in with your bullion. They are very common, and if they are not in Mint State (uncirculated) condition they are only going to go into a dealer's junk/circulated silver dollar box. My dealer sells these for $17.95. He would probably pay you spot X .77 for each one...basically bullion value.

Key dates that are needed for a collection can bring high prices in circulated condition, but these are not key dates.

Mintage on the 1880 Morgan was 12,600,000 pieces. The 1922 Peace was 15,063,000 pieces. If the Morgan was a Carson City, for example, or the Peace was the coveted 1921, you would have something worth some money, even in circulated condition.

By your discription each coin trades at about 3 or 4 dollars over the spot value of the metal they contained when struck. At the best .77344 x spot + 3 or 4 dollars.

Agree with above post; hang on to them. They're "real" money.
