Many of these coins were released to circulation so they're often found in worn condition. They contain about 3/8 oz. of silver so that also sets a "floor" price.

Numismedia lists the following approximate retail values as of 06/2012:

Very worn condition - $16

Moderately worn - $17

Slightly worn - $17

Almost no wear - $27

Uncirculated - $30 to $9,300 depending on quality

DISCLAIMER: The retail values quoted are the best available as of the date shown, but may vary significantly due to changes in the precious metals market. Also the wholesale (buying) price of a coin will be less than the selling (retail) price. A reputable coin dealer will be able to give a more accurate valuation based on inspection of the coin.
