Value of commemoratives

Hi all!

In doing some playing around in my PCGS Registry, I noticed that my coin "Cost" was higher then my coin "Value"... this kinda disturbed me as I am pretty careful as to what I will pay for each coin.

Doing further research, I found that a number of coins didn't show a value but thier cost was still in the "Cost" calculation.

The coins were specifically the 4 Samoa quarters that I bought, as my warped sense of humor kicked in seeing Bats as the subject on those coins, and my Apollo/Haise and other Haise signed coins.

That caused my wondering if there was a way that the drop down to select what coins displayed could have an option to remove those without a value...

...and why those don't have a value associated with them... especially the Haise signed as the population for those is pretty low, and a couple are now what I am thinking, impossible to find...


Thanx and Clear Skies!

    If you click on the details of your specific coin you can add a value yourself if it is not listed on the set registry. This is common for newer coins and obscure varieties that might not have a PCGS price guide value. Also, you can change the value of a coin with a PCGS price guide value if you believe the value is lower or higher than the price guide. I hope this helps!

  • It does, thanx!

    If I enter a 'Value' when PCGS comes up with one, will it overwrite mine? I hope!

    Yes. If the PCGS price guide puts a value of your coin at $100, you can overwrite that to $150 or $200 if you like.

  • Ok, I like the idea of me being able to put a value there if there isnt one, but when PCGS calculates one I'd prefer mine to be overwritten. I think it gives a better idea of average value. I can always put in the notes if there is some reason why a particular coin is worth more or less than the PCGS Value.

    I appreciate your help!

    The supply and demand for the coin decides the value.
