While knowing the silver melt value of a coins is both interesting and informative, it should not be construed as a complete indicator of the true value of those coins. The melt value shown above is only indicative of what the coin is worth based on the precious metal it contains compared to recent market activity.

 

That figure completely disregards any numismatic value that may be associated with it. Numismatic value is the amount a specific coin is worth to other collectors and varies not only based on the above melt values but also takes into consideration factors such as rarity and condition of the coin in question.

 

For instance, American Silver Eagles are struck from one ounce of 99.9% fine silver. As such, their melt value will always be approximately equal to what one ounce of silver is currently trading for on the open market. However, the numismatic values associated with the strike may be much more. One example is the 1995 Proof American Silver Eagle produced at the U.S. Mint's West Point facility. It is considered a key date coin of the series and can have numismatic values associated with it of thousands of dollars.

 

Thus, it is important to look at the melt value of a coin as just one indicator of its true value.
