    ok, hypothetical question here, say 50 years from now your cleaning out an old house, and you come across a quart jar full of presidential dollar coins, unsearched , what do you think the value of these would be? Keep in mind they would not lose their color to oxidation, being sealed in a airtight jar..

    well, maybe not for the Nixon ones lol... but seriously, collectors worth, you know for errors and what not, plus just collectible value....

    That's a pretty relevant question...
    Maybe if they came out with a low numbered set of just the presidents who were assasinated,( or an attenpt was made), the set would be more valuable.
    The president on the front, and the "shooter" on the back.
    (And remember, you heard it here first).

    "just the presidents who were assasinated,( or an attenpt was made)"

    Can it include presidents that (in some people's opinions) should have been assasinated?

    I think that would cover just about all of them sadly. And now I am sure the FBI is monitoring this, lol

    You outta try that now...fill a small mayonaise jar with a random variety of Presidential dollars. Start it on eBay at face value and claim it's an "Unsearched hoard found while cleaning out an old garage"...and see what happens.

    Some people are drawn to the word "unsearched" like moths to a flame. :D

    Seriously, though...Presidential dollars are mostly copper with mintages close to those of early '60s pennies (50 years old).

    How much would a quart jar of unsearched, uncirculated (red) pennies from the early 60's be worth to you today?

    I'm thinking about $100 or so.

    I'll say $1.15 each.
  14. They will be worth $1.00 to $5.00 each depending on the condition and the president. TC

    The dollars might have a small premium, but the Jar could be worth hundreds!

    Lets see, the Ikes and SBA's don't have that much value after 30-40 years, unless you have a special variety of some sort. $1.15- $1.25...

    I am going to vote spendable.

    I still see brand new rolls of 60's nickels and cents... spendable... The only reason the halves and quarters from the early 60's aren't spendable is their metal content...

    so definitely spendable... and with inflation considered... I would say they are going to buy much less in 50 years then they buy today so you are better off taking that $50 and buying a much older coin and sticking it in a jar for 50 years.

    Actually, 50 years from today, they will probably still be trying to get rid of the surplus at the mint by direct shipment at face value, so it would be cheaper just to buy them from the mint. Any takers on whether or not there will still be uncirculated rolls of 2010 presidential dollar coins sitting in a dusty bin at the U.S. Mint in 2060? :)

    Kidding aside, probably worth $1 apiece at that time, but someone will probably pay triple that if you can truly say they are unsearched shotgun rolls fifty years from now. 'moths to the flame'

    $1 each and even sealed they will tone and tone badly.

    Say you put $100, or 100 of them in the jar in fifty years your net loss or value at that time will be about $38 for the 100 coins.
    Thats about as good as it's going to get if that good.

    Sorry was I blunt again, oh gosh golly gee I sure hope not!!!

    These things are being socked away much like the Bi-Centennial coins from 76. What are they worth today some 34 years later.. There are thousands of rolls of them in dresser drawers all over America, just like these chuckie cheese tokens being passed off as Dollar Coins. I say face value, net loss because of the inflationary times heading our way.
