How much is my coin worth?

The value of a coin depends on multiple factors, including the market availability and demand, and the condition of the coin.

A rare coin may sell for a low price if there are few collectors seeking to get it. Conversely, a coin with a higher mintage can sell for a high price if there is a high demand.

The condition of the coin is a crucial criterion: a coin in a very high grade with no defect will have a much higher value than a coin in average or damaged condition.


Here are possible ways to evaluate how much a coin is worth:


  • Look for the coin in the Numista catalogue. For some coins, Numista is able to provide an estimate price depending on the year, mintmark, variant and grade of the coin. 
    The estimates are based on evaluations by Numista users and sales realized on Internet platforms. They serve as an indication only; they are not intended to be relied upon for buying, selling or exchanging.

  • Ask on the Numista forum “Coin identifications and evaluation”.
  • Show your coin to experts and coin dealers.
  • Search for coins in similar condition recently sold. For example, search for “Sold Items” on eBay or check websites like or CoinArchives.
