How do I Find the Declared Value of my coin?

Modified on Wed, 24 May 2023 at 10:34 AM

The declared value of a coin is typically the estimated market value of the coin at the time of submission for grading or authentication. Here are some ways to estimate the value of a coin:


Consult a price guide: There are several price guides available that provide estimated values for coins based on their condition, rarity and other factors. Some popular price guides include the Red Book and the Blue Book. There is also a free price guide listed on the CAC website.


Research recent sales: Another way to estimate the value of a coin is to research recent sales of similar coins in similar condition. This can give you a better idea of what the market value of your coin may be.


Consult a professional: If you are unsure about the value of your coin, you may want to consult with one of our authorized dealers. Please note that the individuals listed on our website as authorized dealers are not employees of CAC Grading nor are they professional graders so their opinions do not reflect the opinion of CAC Grading.  However, they are knowledgeable and will be able to help you estimate the value. 


When submitting a coin for grading or authentication, it is important to declare an accurate value for the coin. This value will be used to determine the grading or authentication fees, as well as the insured value of the coin during the submission and grading process. Declaring an accurate value can help to ensure that your coin is adequately protected and insured during the grading and shipping process.
