COINS

Table of Contents

Crown Gold Exchange accepts all types of U.S.A. and foreign coins. This includes coins made from gold, silver and platinum. The difference between coins and bullion is that a coin has a monetary denomination and is minted from a government where bullion can be minted by any public or private mint. Additionally, most coins don’t show the weight or purity of the coin. Bullion however, shows both the weight and purity along with the name of the mint.

If you have a coin that you feel may be rare or more valuable than the metal it’s made of, please see our “Numismatic Coin” section.

U.S.A. SILVER COINS

The United States produced silver coins until the year 1976. It used to be common to see silver coins as change in your pocket but it’s very rare today. If you see any half-dollar, dime, or quarter with the year 1964 or earlier, it’s 90% silver and worth much more than face value. 90% silver also coined the term “coin silver. If you see a half-dollar during the years 1965 and 1969, it’s 40% silver. Only some half-dollars in 1970 were made of 40% silver.

The U.S. mint also minted 40% silver Eisenhower dollars from 1971-1974 and again in 1976. Only the non-proof coins minted in San Francisco with the “s” mint mark are made of 40% silver from 1971-1974. Some of the bicentennial 1776-1976 Eisenhower dollars are 40% silver.

FOREIGN SILVER COINS

Foreign silver coins have a history similar to that of U.S. coins. They were once very popular but now they’re no longer minted. If you find any foreign silver coins, they’re still worth much more than you may think.
