Interesting. I always wonder who and why anyone would spend time making such a web site but then.........
Unfortunately there is no accounting for coin wear. This system assumes that all coins are uncirculated. Also the calculator says form 09 to 82 and does not take into consideratioin the 43 Steel Cents. However, nice calculator.

I think your web site is extremely helpful. I use it all the time as very convenient, especially when considering Ebay auctions and want to know the base metal value of coins and bullion to better determine what would be a fair price to pay. I used to do it manually with a calculator and would take awhile as would have to figure out composition of each different coin, determine present bullion value of each and then do the math. Its a real time saver.

I think everyone understands the above comment in that this calculation is for uncirculated condition coins, but same issue applies for doing it manually. Its not too hard to manually make some minor approximated adjustment for coin wear for those that have collected (hoarded) and have weighed some average circulated in bulk manually before. Its not a huge difference at all for most hoarded coins (pennies and nickels), and almost no difference for many gold (and many silver coins) as many are sold uncirculated or close to anyway. Thank-You for letting us all use your site. I personally have made very good use of it.

Good point. I believe the bullion dealers figure that in a $1000 face bag of circulated silver coins, there are about 715 ounces of silver. If the bags are all half dollars, then they figure about 718-720 due to the coins not being circulated as much.

My hobby: collecting real money 1 copper cent or nickel at a time.

I'd like to see a volume calculator!!!! How much is in a 1 to 5 gallon bucket (I don't want to go back and sort them, nor do I own a scale big enough to weigh them).

On the Base metal calculator I saw it used price per lb as lb(Avoirdupois) instead of lb(troy).
A troy pound weighs less than a Avoirdupois lb. It is not clear anywhere which type of pound is to be used in spot prices. I asumed troy since it was metal. But coinflation calculator uses Avoirdupois lbs.
So anyone know what a pound of spot copper weighs?

No, Troy only refers to Precious metals. Gold, Silver, Platinum, Palladium, Rhodium. All other medals are weighed in normal Av lbs.

Highroller, Coinflation has an identical Canada page under the Countries tab.

A person who won't read has no advantage over one who can't read.
