Silver Dollar Values

Silver dollar values have traditionally moved with the spot price of silver since the inception of silver dollar minting in the United States. Only on coins with a numismatic appeal will the silver dollar values begin to shift away from the spot price of silver for the day. Morgan and Peace silver dollar values generally do not trade for more than their silver content when they are in a highly circulated state.

The main reason for determining the silver dollar values in this way, as opposed to evaluating the silver dollar values based on any coin collector appeal, is because there were so many millions that were minted and are still in existence. The silver dollar values of the Morgan and Peace varieties can fluctuate and move higher than the price of their silver content when specimens are found to be in a much higher condition and of a much lower mintage. Key dates or better dates in the Morgan and Peace silver dollar series can have silver dollar values that are considerably higher than the average silver dollar values. For example, the coveted 1879 CC and 1889 CC Morgan silver dollars can have silver dollar values that move into the several thousands of dollars if they are found to be in a brilliant uncirculated condition. A common misconception when dealing with the Eisenhower dollar, which came into circulation in 1971, is that they are silver dollars and and have silver dollar values comparable to that of the Morgan and Peace silver dollar values.

In fact, the Eisenhower dollars, or “Ike” dollars for short, are made of copper nickel, thereby negating any of the the silver dollar values present in the Morgan and Peace silver dollar. There are a few exceptions to this rule. In some proof sets and other limited proof releases, the United States mints did produce 40% silver Ikes. The silver dollar values for these coins will still be dramatically lower than that of the silver dollar values within the Morgan and Peace types simply because there is a significantly lower silver content in each coin.

For most of the silver Ikes, there is almost no numismatic appeal as these coins are not old enough or rare enough to command silver dollar values greater than just the silver content within each coin.

Great family run store. I’m well taken care of every time I show up at this location. Thank you Nick.

This past Saturday I had the opportunity to meet the owner and team at Nevada Coin and Jewelry. I didn’t know what to expect but they made me feel both comfortable and safe. I went through my collection of jewelry, both broken pieces and things I thought were of no value at all. They took the time to explain what each carat weight was worth and they helped me sort through my items. I was amazed at what they gave me for things I would never wear or use. I would recommend you stop in and speak to them, you might be as pleasantly surprised as I was.

I recently got divorced so I wanted to get rid of some of the jewelry my ex-husband got me. I found Nevada Coin and jewelry searching the web. When I called the guy that answered the phone was friendly and willing to quote me a price per gram. I went to their store on Flamingo, Avery whom I spoke to on the phone tested my items using some kind of x-ray machine. I could see that some of my jewelry was not the karat I thought (some lower some higher). He paid what he quoted on the phone no bait and switch. It took less than 15 minutes got my cash and got rid of some bad memories. I would recommend this company if you are looking to sell jewelry.

A great selection of coins and other numismatic related material. Very professional.

The staff are quick at work but not too quick to make you feel pressured into buying items or selling your items. They teach you about the items and tell you if they have use for your items or not. If they don’t have use for your items they call other places to see if they have a use for the items. Great staff!


What friendly staff. They help you sell your items even if they don’t have a use for it by calling other shops around the area to see if they could use it… They want you to have the best out come from selling your items. I was so happy I decided to go to them!


While vacationing in Las Vegas I did what a lot of people do I’m sure or at least that’s what I’m telling my wife ..I blew through the money I brought a little quicker than expected and I ended up having to shop my Rolex around to several dealers to save the trip. So I looked online for places, most offers over the phone were low and that’s if they would even quote me in the first place. I spoke to a guy at Nevada Coin and Jewelry who gave me a fair ball park price and a reasonable explanation as to why his number couldn’t be solid. Went down expecting to get the lower number and in fact Robert their Rolex expert said my Rolex was a better model then I had described. He paid me a higher number than he quoted. Thanks for saving my vacation guys.

I am a brazilian and had the chance to deal with Nevada Coin. I was there to sell some gold coins and they paid me the best price I could fetch in Las Vegas. They are professional, courteous and trustworthy. Before visiting their premises I got a tentative appraisal by phone which I found reasonable. In the shop the attendant offered to approach the manager to get me a (gasp) BETTER price. Do yourself a favor and don’t bother talking to their rude and unprofessional competitors. They will treat you like a moron and quote prices accordingly. For Nevada Coin, five Stars all the way.


Nevada Coin and Jewelry – has excellent customer service – providing las Vegas with top notch service and expertise – this is my primary coin dealers — others just can’t keep up – they are helpful and friendly – in my opinion they are the best in the south west area — so that’s my review a++++ rating – because I am a good customer – this is the best place to buy and sell gold and silver bullion.
