Is the 911 Twenty Dollar Silver Certificate from National Collectors Mint Really worth anything?
No. This is the not the first time this company has tried to profit off the 9/11 tragedy. They were shut down by Eliot Spitzer the first time, and I understand there is an investigation underway over this latest effort. They claim they are selling it for "face value," but there is no "face value." It is not legal tender, and it is very likely a scam.

1979 is the most common date for Susan B. Anthony dollars -- hundreds of millions of them were minted, so they are very common. They are made of a sandwich of copper & nickel… -- like quarters are -- so they have no silver in them. Being as common as they are, even in mint uncirculated condition, they are only worth a couple of dollars at best. The first answer is correct UNLESS it is a 1979 P Near Date variety (sometimes called a Wide Rim variety) which would retail for $12. Or a 1979 S Type II proof which lists for $110. Even the 1979 S Type I proof lists at $8
Answer . Mints are identified by their city rather than state, so the reference would be to the Carson City mint. You did not provide any information about the coin's dat…e or condition so I'd suggest looking at a price guide such as http://www.numismedia.com/fmv/prices/mordlr/pricesgd.shtml
Unless it's uncirculated, maybe no more than $1.25 As you've seen in many other posts, a bill's serial number isn't usually important to its value. A bill's date, seal… color, condition, and whether there is a small letter next to the date are what generally affect its value.
The conversion of the face value of the "9/11 Twenty" as of 2008.07.26 15:37:25 UTC is: 20.00 LRD = 0.314961 USD Liberia Dollars United States… Dollars 1 LRD = 0.0157480 USD 1 USD = 63.5000 LRD
Not enough details. Please post a new question with the bill's date, seal color, and whether there is a small letter next to the date.
Silverwise, it is worth about $9.00. But, usually for these dollars, in your case a Peace Dollar, you can usaully fetch a bit more than melt value. I'd say you coul…d get between $15 and $20 regularly. However, you do want to take a look at condition. Condition will make the price jump up very nicely. Also, check the coin for the mint mark (none, D or S). You will find this mark on the back left side if any. This may affect the price as well.
This can't be a US coin. The first year of issue was 1794.
If your referring to a 1989 American Silver Eagle coin, the value is based on the price of silver at time of sale. It should be about $15.00
It depends what kind of coin you have. If you have a small (26.5 mm) coin with a really unattractive picture of Susan B. Anthony on the front, it's copper-nickel rat…her than silver and is only worth $1. If you have a large (40 mm) coin with Miss Liberty walking in a flowing gown and the words 1 oz FIne Silver or similar on the back, it's a bullion piece sold for its silver content and not for spending; the $1 denomination is artificial. In that case its value will change along with the price of silver. As of 12/2009 that's about $17.
It depends on condition. The 1900-S is a better date Morgan so the values per grade go up a little more than the common coins do. Take it to dealer and have it graded. Values …are $17.00-$150.00 for circulated coins.
They were never "minted" because that term only applies to coins. Bills are printed, like books or magazines. Series dates for $20 silver certificates are all in t…he 19th century: 1878, 1880, 1886, and 1891. Many different types of $20 bills were printed after that but none were silver certificates.
Generally yes, but it depends very much on their dates. Bills from the final series (dated 1957) are so common among collectors that even half a century later they're only… worth $1.50 or so in average condition. Older silver certificates' values vary widely, so at a minimum a date and series letter are needed to estimate a value.
In US Coins
Coins from private mints like that have zero collector value and are only worth the metals used to make them. If the coin is silver, it's worth something for that. If not, it'…s not worth anything.
In circulation they're always worth the face value of the bill. As for the collector value, in very good condition (not a grading phrase) they will usually be worth $3-$4 …depending on the year they were printed, and possibly much more if they're older than 1935, or are special such as the wartime bills printed for use in Hawaii and North Africa. If in mint condition they could be worth a few dollars more. There are exceptions that are worth much more. See related link below.

The word COPY is a dead giveaway that your coin is a replica. As such it's probably only worth a few dollars unless the coin also indicates that it's made of precious meta…l. For example, if it carries wording such as "999 fine silver" or similar you'd know it's a bullion piece meant to look like a real silver dollar and can be sold for its metal content. Otherwise, it's probably some base metal with a silver-plated surface. The word COPY is required on all "legitimate" replica collectible items by the Hobby Protection Act of 1973. There are many honest firms that make copies of rare collectibles; the HPA's aim is to prevent those copies from being re-sold as the genuine item which is a form of deception and/or counterfeiting. Of course it does nothing to prevent fakery by anyone whose intent is to deceive, but it protects the good name of legitimate firms as well as collectors who might not be aware that an item is a replica. For example during the 1920s a number of firms made reproductions of Confederate paper money that were sold in gift shops or given as promotions. Many of these reproductions were extraordinarily accurate but didn't carry the word COPY. In the intervening years a lot of them found their way onto the open market where it was very difficult to tell them from the real thing, a problem that continues to affect collectors.
For the most part, they're worth maybe $1.50 to a collector. A coindealer won't pay a premium unless it's in exceptional condition, orperhaps a star note.
