How to Sell Coins That You Inherited
Liquidating a Coin Collection

For larger coin collections, It’d really help to expedite the evaluation process if you could have some order to it in the following manner:
Separate your inherited coins by types
- All sets with sets
- Packaged & boxed type items together
- Individual (or loose) US coins with each other
- Separate the cents, nickels, dimes and so on with like coins
- Separate any currencies by their denomination(s)
- Foreign with foreign (same as above)

That’s pretty much it. If you inherited gold coins Great! Something worth noting is that the spot price of gold fluctuates from day to day and a lot of gold coins are merely that (gold coins) and only worth only their weight in gold at the time. However, their are a number of gold coins that can have a significant numismatic value which means it could be worth a great deal more than the current gold value (same goes for the above mentioned items too).
Inherited silver coins are the same way. A lot of coins (including foreign coins) from the mid 60’s and earlier may have a percentage of silver in them. US coins from that time period are generally referred to as junk silver coins and have 90% silver but no collectible values per say. Some are very collectible and some are not, It all depends on the condition of the coins and when & where it was minted etc. But, that’s what we’re here for right? 😉
