By American Coins & Gold

When it comes to determining the value of coins the first thing to understand is there are multiple types of coin values.


  • The “Book Value”

A coins book value is one you would see published online or in a coin catalog.  It represents what an average coin dealer would sell the coin for.

  • imageThe Retail Value

Retail value represents how much a coin dealer would sell a coin to you for.  This is less higher than the buy price because they need to make profit to stay in business.

  • The Buy Price

The buy price is lower than the book value because it represents what a coin buyer will offer you to sell your coins. 

  • The Wholesale Value

Wholesale values of coins refers to when dealers buy & trade amongst themselves.  It is also largely associated with larger amounts of coins as well.

By understanding those types of value you will be able to have better insight into the value of your coin in different situations and how it can variate.
