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. It calculates coin metal values based on the current silver price (pre-determined, you do not need to know the current value of silver). Just remember to enter the number of silver coins you have, not face value of those coins.

  1. Hi my name Ashton I found a wierd dollar coin with James Garfield 2011 D but on the sides of him are a cross and 2 lighting strikes. I was wondering if anyone knows what the price is.

    • Hello, Ashton —

      Please see my earlier remarks to your question about this. It appears the coin has been counterstamped, by somebody outside of the U.S. Mint.

      Thanks for posting the image and for your question!
