Patrick M. writes Hello..I have six silver dollars and I was wondering if you’d be able to give me a ball park figure of their worth. I have 5 Morgan dollars, the dates are: 1879, 1881, 1902, and two 1921’s. I also have one from 1922..I believe it is called the peace dollar? Would you tell me how to know what constitutes good condition on these coins and any other valuable information I may need. Thank You–Patrick
Morgan and Peace dollars were minted at several mints. Besides condition, the mint mark adds or subtracts from the value depending on the rarity of that mint’s issue. If all of the above dates are from the most common mints and are in average circulated condition they would be considered common and are worth between $15-20 each. Common date silver dollars are sold in $1,000 face value bags in the market.
