Question by : I have a miniature sterling silver coin set of six coins but the maker and mint company is no where on ? No where on internet maker john W england what's it worth
Answer by curtisports2 Without being able to see them, all I can say is that they are worth the silver content. To get that, you need to weigh the medals or medallions (they are not coins) on a metric scale. Divide the result by 31.1 grams, the weight of one Troy ounce. Then multiply by .925, the purity of sterling silver. That will be the actual silver weight. You then multiply that by the spot market price of silver.
Depending on the scarcity (which cannot be known without knowing what they are), a collector might pay a little or a lot more than the silver value. A dealer will pay only for the silver, at a discount of up to 25% of the silver value.
