How much is an 1901 American silver dollar worth?
1901 is one of those dates that are not real expensive in the circulated grades but becomes very expensive in the uncirculated grades.
A well-worn coin will be worth $15-$20 A lightly-worn coin will be worth $60-$200 An uncirculated coin will be worth $1,500-$11,000 or more!
Professional grading should be considered for your coin if it's in real nice condition.
All the above assumes there is no mintmark on the back of the coin (above the "DO" in DOLLAR).
If your coin has an "O" mintmark, it's common, and will prettymuch only be worth $8 to $25 depending on condition.
If your coin has an "S" mintmark, it's rarer than an "O", and will be worth $10 to $30 in the circulated grades, and $250-$500 in the uncirculated grades.
A 1901 Morgan silver dollar is 90% silver and so it is worth at least the current price of pure silver, which is as of now 11/18/2011 about $32.00 an ounce. The coin contains one ounce of pure silver. Numismatically it's worth at least $50, and if perfect, $325,000....
What is the price difference between the 1901 Morgan silver dollar and the Morgan silver dollar stamped with an o?
No. In the 20th century the U.S. minted true silver dollars (i.e. made of 90% silver) from 1901 to 1904 and again from 1921 to 1935. A trial run of new dollars was made in 1964 but they were never released and all are presumed to have been melted. By 1965 the price of silver had increased to the point where silver coins were worth more than their face value so not only was dollar…
You can either look up the value in a price guide, such as an online listing or a publication like the Red Book, or you can bring it to a coin dealer for an appraisal. The 1901-O Morgan is a common date so its value is on the low end. It's worth at least $22 for its silver content, and up to about $30 in uncirculated condition.
July 16, 2009 First, the 1901 silver dollar was a Morgan Dollar. Charles E. Barber designed a number of coins but the 1901 silver dollar was not one of them. The 1901 was produced in 3 US Mint facilities; Philadelphia, New Orleans and San Francisco. The mintmarks for each of these mints can be found on the reverse [tails] side of the coin, at the bottom just above the letter "O" in the word "DOLLAR"…
The U.S. stopped making gold $1 coins in 1889. If you have a large Morgan dollar that appears to be gold, it's actually a silver dollar that is either discolored or plated. If it's plated it'll only be worth its silver melt value, around $8 to $10. BTW, the "lady" on old U.S. coins is Miss Liberty!!!
Silver, not gold. E Pluribus Unum, not "eplurius" (check the spelling on the coin) Plus, ALL coins have that motto so it doesn't help to ID a particular item. Presumably it IS a dollar coin, at least. In that case the gold color is because it was plated for use in jewelry or similar. That would make it an altered coin worth only its metal value, about $14 as of 08/2008
How much is an 1882 silver dollar minted in New Orleans if it has been gold plated and also a 1900 and 1901 minted in New Orleans though not gold plated?
A British 1901 silver "Trade Dollar" (minted in Bombay), uncirculated and in absolute mint condition could fetch up to £45 GBP. If it has been circulated but still in good condition, it might fetch anything from £12 to £20 GBP. A British 1901 silver "Trade Dollar" (minted in Calcutta), uncirculated and in absolute mint condition could fetch up to £150 GBP. If it has been circulated but still in good condition, it might fetch anything…
