I have a large coin collection most of them belonged to my grandfather, but my aunt gave me this rare collection back in 2000, is coin collection from Nicaragua, the coins were a present from the ambassador of Nicaragua to my aunt back in the 70's , some of the coins are a tribute to the US as you can see in the pics below,
I wonder what this coins might worth.

I have a penny collection (every year from 2011 down to I believe '43, working on the rest), and a handful of other various old coins. Does that count?

That's a nice collection, I collect coins from all over the world, most of them either gold or silver, these are quite rare I believe, the proof finish is just awesome, but I really want to know how much this coins might worth.

Any ideas?

Very impressive ad0726! I have a collect of American coins from the U.S. Mint dating back to 1989. They're encased in hardplastic and whatnot. They're in a safe at my grandpas house so I have no pics.

Couldn't you have just said "any coin collectors here"?

I had to come in here to see what all the talk was about.

I do collect monopoly money (canadian). Have a ton of centennials, a big bag of old nickels, and quite a few various special edition this and that. The mint here can't turn down the opportunity to do anything that would get 'em a little more loot.

If I happen to get American coins that are anything other than a regular item, I keep them... but that's a depreciating asset now that the dollars are remotely near par Laughing

Before you go to a coin dealer with your coins, go to a large book store and buy some coin books which list all the values. There are coin books for American coins and Foreign coins. These books will give you an idea of the coins' value before you get an offer from a dealer.
A US quarter dated 1975 is worth as much as 10 new Impalas!

I collected coins for awhile but the "chase" didn't keep me going. Thank goodness. Now I collect comic books. Actually, I've been doing so for 23 years now. I'm not sure what you have for coins but I would go to a high end place and a lower end place and get their opinions. If they're about the same, then you know what you got. Thats a quick 30 minute way to figure it out.

Now that I read what I wrote, that makes no sense. There are better ways to go about that. I'm going to finish my whiskey now. Embarassed

If you could translate everything for me.......

But the part that says "monedas de plate 925/1000" implies to me that the item is sterling silver (.925 pure), not solid silver (.999 pure). Many private mints use sterling silver as opposed to pure silver.

Without a translation, I'd have to say take the current price of silver (about $35.10/ounce at the time of post) multiply by .925 and you have the value of the silver in the coin (per ounce), but not the numi value. So figure out how many ounces there are......

Here's a current auction on ebay for these coins. Remember asking is different from getting...

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nicara.....588e9fa456

A quick note: if you check the history of the revisions on this auction, you will see he has been listing it since Jun 2011, apparently there is little interest in this set.

Ok let's take this one step further.

This is purely about metal value, not numi value.

2 coins are 23.25 grams
2 coins are 11.63 grams
1 coin is 4.65 grams.

precious metals are measured in troy ounces not avoip. ounces.
So 1 troy pound = 12 ounces, not 16 ounces.

Now 31.1 grams = 1 troy ounce

From above 23.25+23.25+11.63+11.63+4.65 = 74.41grams.
74.41 / 31.1 = 2.396 troy ounces of sterling silver
2.396 * 0.925 = 2.213 ounces of pure silver.

2.213 * $34.92 (price of silver this morning at post time) = $77.28

If you were going to send it to a refiner (to melt it) they only pay about 90% of the silver value. So it would be $77.28 x .9 = $69.55 - (minus) your cost to ship it to them.

Keep it for the memories.

I'm sure the collection is worth more to you than that.

Thanks for the reply Henry, I will keep the set, I'm not interested about selling it, I was just curious of its value.
