Believe it or not, there are silver and gold coins worth far more than the actual material it’s made from and some types of coins in the world are worth more than you could even possibly imagine. Whether the value of a silver or gold coin is due to its rarity, discontinuation, or mint errors, it’s certainly beneficial to know the worth!
4 Valuable Silver and Gold Coins
1.) 1794 Flowing Hair Silver Dollar
Allegedly worth just under $1 million when in mint condition, the 1794 Flowing Hair Silver Dollar is an extremely valuable coin. Even when the coin is in poor condition, it can still have the great worth of an approximate $47,148. Only 1,758 original copies of the rare coin exist. The 1794 Flowing Hair Silver Dollar is special because it is the first dollar coin that the United States ever dispersed.
2.) 1870 Liberty Seated Dollar
This 1870 Liberty Seated Dollar may have an approximate silver melt of $13, but the overall worth of the rare coin could range from $177,286 all the way to nearly $2 billion! This rare coin is special because when the coin was minted, it was the very first time in almost a decade that the Liberty Seated Dollar was minted in multiple locations. There are three versions that include CC mint marks for Carson City, S mint marks for San Francisco, and no marks. While all are valuable and rare, the ones worth the most are the rare coins minted in San Francisco.
3.) 1933 Indian Head Gold Eagle
Though its face value is $10, the 1933 Indian Head Gold Eagle has a gold melt of $621! This isn’t even the impressive characteristics of the gold coin though. The 1933 Indian Head Gold Eagle could be worth the value of $600,000 when in good condition! Why is this rare gold coin so valuable? It turns out that 1933 was the last year the rare coin was minted. Not only is this gold coin valuable because of this but it’s also because President Roosevelt banned the country from owning personal gold and a majority of the coins were melted in accordance!
4.) 1797 Draped Bust Half Dollar
With only a silver melt of a mere $6.08, this 1797 Draped Bust Half Dollar could have the potential worth of half a million dollars! The reason for this rare silver coin being so valuable is the fact that it was the last half dollar issued in the century until 1801.
While these are just some of the most valuable silver and gold coins of the world, there are plenty more valuable coins out there! Knowing the value of coins can help you when you are on the hunt for coins that are worth the most.
