There are .7736 troy ounces in United States silver dollars (Morgan, Peace silver dollars). That worked out to the price of silver being fixed at $1.29/ounce. Troy ounces are heavier than avoirdupois ounces (31.1g vs. ~28g).

It's only partial silver -- worth about $2.00

1957 $1 bills are silver certificates. In the old days, you could trade that dollar for $1 worth of silver, or silver dollars. Right now, you can sell them or keep it.

You should never polish a silver dollar or any old coin. Any standard silver polish you have at home will damage the coin's surface and reduce its value.

There were no US silver dollars struck in 1970. Silver was removed from all circulating US coinage in 1965 and the Eisenhower dollar (which contained no silver but was the same size as the old silver dollars) wasn't first struck until 1971.

There was no US silver dollar minted in 1950. If you mean a half dollar, it would be worth at least its value in silver which as of writing is about $7.70 but it would be worth more in better condition. As with all old coins, cleaning harms the value.

125 grams or 4.02 troy ounces.

It comes from the German word 'thaler', an old silver coin.

Old US silver dollar dated 1921. The Peace dollars were in circulation after Morgan's. that's just design name.

You should never polish old coins, even if they have turned dark or black.

The old silver dollar first went into circulation in 1935. Then in 1968, the size was reduced and the composition changed from silver to pure nickel. In 1987, it was changed again to the smaller golden dollar still in use today.

Sorry no US dollar coins dated 1911 but there is a Barber Half dollar with that date.

no NO U.S. coins were ever made of pure silver. All had at least 10% copper in them. NO U.S. half dollar is worth a megabuck. Perhaps you are thinking of the famous 1804 silver dollar, which does sell for over that amount.

No mint mark indicates that the coin was minted in Philadelphia.

Coin silver (90% silver & 10% copper) tends to melt at a slightly lower temperature than pure silver, about 1615 degrees Fahrenheit, compared to 1761 for pure silver.

No 1911 silver dollars were made, look at the coin again and post new question.

Old silver dollars are still legal tender at face value. However, if it's dated 1935 or earlier, then it's worth much more than a dollar for the silver.

a silver dollar is 90% pure silver so when you weigh it you simply take of 10% of its weigh and you then calculate that weight but the silver spot price. so if you have a a load of silver dollar coins weighing Or you could go here to a coin melt value calculator and find out (but not all) silver dollars are worth more to a coin dealer or collector than to a "we buy old coins" metal buyer, so it's important to have the coins evaluated before selling them as scrap.

Of the 14 different series of United States one dollar coins, none are "Liberty Silver Dollars" Please include a date and post new question.

Please don't assume that every old bill is a silver certificate. 1914 $20 bills were issued as Federal Reserve Notes, not silver certificates. There's more information at the question "What is the value of a 1914 US 20 dollar bill?".

There are many different kinds of dollar. Do you mean a dollar bill, a new dollar coin, an old dollar coin? Please post a more specific question.

Other than size, appearance, and monetary value... not much. If both were minted pre 1965, then they are both 90% silver. Both underwent a few different styles. For the silver dollar, there were Liberty, Morgan, and Peace designs. Dimes were Liberty, Barber, Mercury and Roosevelt.

Need to know the coins date, post new question.

Value depends on a number of factors such as the date, mint mark, and condition. All U.S. silver dollars minted in 1935 or earlier are currently worth at least $26 for the silver content.

As this is 2011, it is 121 years old. However, that is the date it was minted. Some issues are not circulated during the year of minting, and it may be 'only' 120 years old.
