2 Free Online Coin Calculators

  1. Perhaps the best online calculator for guesstimating value of all the coins in your coin jar is Coin-Calc. How accurate is it, you ask?… Well, there are mixed opinions on this. For the inside scoop on this particular coin calculator, check out Russell Heimlich’s fun experiment with coins he had lying around as spare change.
  2. To calculate approximately what your silver coins are worth, use this U.S. Silver Coin Melt Value Calculator.

Just remember to enter the number of silver coins you have, not face value of those coins.

I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money -- so I frequently write about "outside the box" ideas that most wouldn't think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed several years until switching gears to pursue things I was more passionate about. I've worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo -- to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV. You can always find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun websites).
