Wow, TDK1916, do you have a Gobrecht dollar? That is a major US coin. Congratulations!

where it sold for $14394 during 2012. This gives you an idea what these coins are worth. It's big money ...

DO NOT CLEAN YOUR COIN. CLEANING RUINS VALUE.

Accurate pricing of these amazing coins is well above CoinQuest's ken. If you would like to send a picture, we can probably give you a decent idea of value, but for a general page like this, suffice it to say that values between $10000 and $75000 US dollars apply. (To send a picture, start an e-mail exchange with CoinQuest using the Contact Us link.)

There are many nuance with Gobrecht dollars. Different varieties were minted, some with rotated dies, and restrikes were produced during the 1850s to 1870s. Take your coin to a knowledgeable collector or coin dealer for an in-person appraisal.

As always with valuable coins, be aware that counterfeits exist. Deal only with reputable firms and people you know to be honest. Check the weight of your coin using a jeweler's scale. Genuine coins weigh between 26.7 and 26.9 grams.

CoinQuest thanks Stack's Bowers for use of their coin image. It is a beauty!
