$1 coins

I inherited a slew of silver dollars, rolled up from 2000 on all have been circulated. The wife was a cashier and kept them, replaced with her money. I have $1925 face value rolled up. I soon will be looking to sell soon and am thinking face value plus 20%. Is this reasonable, and thanks

    You might want to post some pictures and identify what the dollar coins are (Morgan/peace/ silver Ikes). You need to be more specific IMHO. Also, you would want to post the sale of the coins on the Buy Sell trade (BST) forum.

    Are you saying they are all dated 2000 and after?

    rolled up from 2000 on

    Are the coins dated 2000 on? If so they are not silver.

    face value plus 20%.

    If they're silver that's way too low. If they are the golden dollars (Sacagawea and Presidents) then it's way too high.

    If the coins you have rolled up are Morgan and Peace Dollars (dollars dated 1935 and earlier) you have something of real value. If they are Eisenhower, Susan B. Anthony or the later "golden color" dollars you probably just have face value. What is in your rolls?

    Unfortunately, given the time frame, these are likely worth face value only. Maybe post a pic?

    If I am reading your post correctly as from the year 2000 to current, then what you have is worth face value only. The only exception would be if she happened to have saved a variety coin that is now popular, the only way to know that would be to go through and review each coin for varieties. As an example the 2000 Sac $1 coin has a variety called the wounded eagle, here is a link to the PCGS coinfacts page that has photos of of this variety. https://pcgs.com/coinfacts/coin/2000-p-sac-1-wounded-eagle/506153

    If you have one of these it would be worth significantly more than face value, the odds are low but just one example of what is possible.

    If I misread and you mean you have coins from 2000 and earlier then you would need to go through and separate out the silver coins (coins from 1964 and earlier) from the more modern coins. The silver coins would be worth much more than face + 20%

    Welcome to School!

    I say School, because you'll be taught in many areas and subjects. Such as, in ethics, manners and business. Many intelligent members here in all areas! Don't be intimidated by some foolish people either. Have patience and listen to what you are taught.
    Your first post is the epitome of the interest of any coin collector's curiosity!
    The magic words, " rolls of Dollars".
    Like mentioned earlier, you must be more specific when stating, "rolls of Dollars!"
    This makes one believe it can be the ultimate kings and queens of American silver dollars.
    The Morgan/Peace. I wish you well in your quest of rolls. We only hope they are the "SILVER DOLLARS".
    Not the non silver or clad ones. Continue to post and ask any questions. Don't be a stranger. And the most important aspect. Is to have FUN!
    Good Luck!

    "Rolled up from 2000" - would be the Golden colored/finished Sacagaweas....... EH?

    So which is it? You inherited silver dollars or your wife collected dollars from change. Change dollars would mostly be saqs and sba's.

    Inherited from a relative would likely be silver.

    Need clarification.

    @Rickochet ... Welcome aboard. @Ownerofawheatiehorde... Definitely not me.... :D
    You will have to post more detail... as described above, you may have coins of collector interest, but, from the description, possibly just modern coins. Cheers, RickO

    It was a "slew of silver dollars".

  • pocketpiececommemspocketpiececommems Posts: 5,741 ✭✭✭✭✭

    At least you have some cash there

  • No troll, just slow getting back, I apologize. I broke open a random roll, tried to take pics but the glare on them was too great. All but two showed an Indian woman and a baby, there were a couple John Adams.And the dates were early 2000's. Sorry for late reply.

  • "Slew " meaning 70 plus rolls.

  • One last clarification, inherited the wife passed in December.

    First and foremost, I am sorry for your loss.

    As for the coins, if that is the type of coins that you inherited then they can and should all be spent or deposited in the bank. They are worth face value.

    @Rickochet- Check each of the eagles on the reverse of those coins. Do you see anything like this?

    Sorry for your loss.

    You can check the 2000 sacagawea dollars for the tail feathers. There were "Cheerios" dollars that were in boxes of cereal. Some had a different tail feather design that is worth a fair amount.

    Regular tail feathers, smooth:
