Appraisal Tip

When getting an appraisal, keep in mind, coins will have two values – replacement value and bid value.

  • Replacement value is your cost to literally replace a coin if it became damaged or was lost due to natural disasters or burglary.
  • Bid value is how much a coin dealer will pay for a coin — bid value is virtually always lower than replacement value.
