Silver Value of World Coins




We all know that with the continuous rise in the value of silver, silver coins have become increasingly valuable not only for their numismatic value but also for their silver content. We've taken a look at US silver coins, but what about silver coins of other countries.

There are numerous countries that have - or have had - silver coinage including Australia, Canada, Germany, Great Britain, and Mexico...just to name a few. And, for those out there that may have tossed their foreign coins into a drawer thinking they have no value, let's take a look at some of the more common foreign coins - from neighboring countries - and see what their 'silver melt value' might be. The pictures shown are representative only, during the years of minting, there may be more than one design used (obverse and reverse)
