Coinflation silver coin values are estimates of the value of the silver found in various American and Canadian coins that are listed alongside the face value of the coin. Coinflation silver coin values are only meant as a rough guide and do not incorporate the value of the coins to collectors and specialists.
Coinflation lists the value of the base metal, gold and silver content in various discontinued coins from the United States and a limited number of coins from other countries, such as Canada and France. Coinflation assists users in determining the metal's value through several tools, including charts of recent metal prices and coin melt calculators.
Coinflation silver coin values update in real time using the market price of silver from the Chicago Mercantile Exchange & Chicago Board of Trade. When the site retrieves the price used in the estimates of the silver's value, the page lists the date, time and time zone above the coin chart along with the silver price per ounce and information on recent price fluctuations. All U.S. coins have their face value and silver content measured in U.S currency, while Canadian coins have their face value measured in Canadian currency, but the site gives their silver content value in U.S. currency.
