Read books which have information about how you can ascertain the value of old coins. You can attend coin exhibitions or fairs and observe how the connoisseurs determine the value of coin. Make sure that the coin has a country of origin mentioned distinctly. It is okay if the mint date is not visible clearly but the wear and tear should not be colossal. You can visit your local coin shop. Mingle with some dealers and discuss about the old coins from a third person point of view. You will soon find a dealer of interest who has inclination to buy your type of coins. Once you have an understanding of the value of the coins, you can make it clear to the dealer that you own those precious coins.

All good advice. My husbands father died and has a lot of old coins as well as newer ones. My husband went to the local coin store and they sell a magazine that has almost anything you want to look up in there. I think they sell for about 4.95, well worth it. It also depends on if the coins are mainly silver which would make them worth more. Silver is at a decent rate right now, gold has gone down from over a $1,000 to about $846.00 which is a big drop. Also if they are UC (uncirculated they are worth more.
