The main US coin types include pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, half dollars, and dollars, encompassing circulating coins, special commemoratives, precious metal bullion, vintage, and rare collector pieces with values depending on scarcity, condition, mintage, and precious metal content.

Determine key details of the coin such as year, country, denomination, material, grade and mint markings. Use a reputable coin catalog like the Red Book or search online sites like our Coin Value Lookup Tool which compiles sales data. Compare your coin specifics to match a catalog value or see recent actual selling prices for the same type of coin in similar conditions.

First organize and catalog your coins, noting details like dates, mint marks, condition. Research values using our coin value lookup guides. Consider selling through a coin dealer, auction house, certified online exchange, or directly to a collector. Expect to pay seller fees. Sort more valuable coins to sell individually. Group the rest into larger lots by type as affordable options for buyers.

Coin grading evaluates the level of preservation and surfaces quality. Study grading scales like Sheldon or Universal. Compare the coin’s sharpness, luster, coloration and marks to grading images. Use a jeweler’s loupe to inspect closely. Natural imperfections like weak strikes lower the grade. Cleaning or damage substantially reduces collectability and grade. Once familiar with grading methods, consistently assign each coin a grade from poor to mint state. Certified services like PCGS also assign grades.
