Overview
Antique coin collections can be worth a lot of money if you take the proper steps to get an accurate appraisal when it comes time to sell.
Step 1
Purchase a book that features coin values. While this may not provide specific values for each of your coins, it will give you a good idea. If anything, purchase two separate coin value books and compare appraisals.
Step 2
Get references for prospective appraisers/buyers. Talk to fellow collectors and get input on the most honest buyers.
Step 3
Visit several appraisers, which can be found either in a phone book/Internet Yellow Pages or through fellow collectors and other contacts. Visiting more than one appraiser/collector/dealer will ensure a broader perspective on the fair value of your coin collection.

Do not conduct an appraisal online. It's best if an appraiser can see and touch your coins, thereby interpreting their condition, and in turn, their value. This cannot be done via the Internet.
