Coin Values

Mavin for coin values and current prices

The value of a coin depends on the type of coin, its condition, and its rarity. The condition of the coin is critical: scratches, dents, and corrosion can greatly reduce its value. Rarity is also important, as coins that are more difficult to find can often be worth more. Coins that are graded often sell for more money than non-graded coins. These grades range from 1 to 70, with a higher grade indicating a better condition. Coins with a higher grade and rarity will usually have a higher value, while coins in poorer condition will have a lower value. Coin values can range from a few dollars to many thousands of dollars for the same coin, so it is important for coin collectors to understand the different grades and factors that effect a coin’s price.

You can use online valuation tools like Mavin to determine the market value of your stamps.
