Canadian and Australian Single Silver Coin Melt Value Lists

Last month saw the addition of a new type of melt value tool at CoinApps.com. Up until that time, there were only calculators that would display the aggregate melt value for every item(coins, bullion, scrap) that the user had included in their selection. The recently added Single U.S. Silver Coin List was different however, in that it showed a separate line item melt value and silver content for each individual type of U.S. Silver coin.

Well now there are single coin value lists for both Canadian and Australian silver coins as well. Just like the U.S. version, these new melt value lists initially figure the melt value of each coin based on the current U.S. Dollar spot price for silver. You do have the option to select another currency and even change the spot price if you like. Any changes made will automatically update the melt values of every coin on the list.

Since these are lists of coins that were once used in circulation, you may want your list to account for any coin wear that was a result of everyday handling. There is a text box available to specify a percentage of coin wear, which will be deducted from the silver content and associated melt value of each coin on the list. Both new melt value lists are now online and available from the following links:

U.S. Silver Coin Melt Values – For Each Single Coin

For more than four years now, the U.S. Silver Coin Melt Value Calculator at CoinApps.com has enabled silver stackers, coin collectors, and metal detecting enthusiasts to quickly calculate the silver melt value for assorted quantities of U.S. junk silver coins. Simply enter the quantity for each type of coin, and the calculator then automatically crunches the numbers and spits out a total value for all of the silver contained in that entire batch of coins.

There are times however when you just want to take a quick look at the silver melt value of each individual coin. For that task, a list of coins displaying the separate melt value for each coin works best. Well, such a list of Single U.S. Silver Coin Melt Values is now available for you to view at CoinApps.com. When you first open the list, the silver melt values are given based on the current spot price of silver. You do however have the option to enter a different silver price, and the list of coin values will automatically update when you do so.

In addition to showing the silver melt value for each type of U.S. Silver coin, this new list also shows how many troy ounces of actual silver that each coin contains. The initial silver content values you will see are based on the amount of silver in uncirculated coins. Since most junk silver has been in circulation though, there is also an option to apply a percentage of approximate coin wear to the resultant coin list values.

Initial values are denominated in U.S. Dollars, but there is a drop-down list you can use to select other currencies if you like. This new list is ready for your immediate use at:

Bitcoin Calculator for Gold

Up until this point, the calculators at CoinApps.com have always displayed their precious and base metal melt values, denominated in fiat currency. Fiat currency, as you may know, is the state-issued currency of any particular government, or union of governments, and is considered to have monetary value simply because its issuing authority says so.  A few examples of fiat currency would include the: U.S. Dollar, Euro, British Pound, Japanese Yen and Indian Rupee.

One of the main criticisms of fiat currency is that it tends to lose its purchasing power over time.  Governments have a long history of creating more and more fiat currency, in order to fund their ever increasing projects; especially once regular revenue from taxes falls short.  This inflation of the state-issued currency is what convinces some people to move their money into alternative currencies, such as the traditional hard currencies of gold and silver.

Recently, a new type of alternative currency has been gaining popularity.  Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer cryptographic digital currency that came into existence in 2009.  Unlike gold and silver, bitcoin does not exist in physical form, but is rather a virtual currency that can be stored and transferred on a computer or smartphone.  Bitcoin is not issued by any government or central authority, and the programming in its source code prevents it from hyperinflation by limiting the total number of bitcoins that can ever exist to just 21 million.

There is a lot more you can learn about bitcoin that is beyond the scope of this short blog post.  There is a good video, as well as information and links to more research at: https://www.weusecoins.com/ .  Please understand that bitcoin is still considered to be an experimental new currency, and as such there is a lot of risk involved if you should choose to invest in it.  The price of bitcoin has been extremely volatile.  As of this writing, the price of bitcoin in this year of 2013 has ranged from $13 to $266 USD per bitcoin.  You might like that amount of volatility if you’re a swing trader, but those that are faint of heart may want to steer clear.

For those that have caught the bitcoin bug, there is a new calculator for you to try at CoinApps.com.  The Bitcoin Calculator for Gold is just like the scrap gold calculator that was released back in April, except that it converts the spot price of gold from dollars to bitcoin, and then tells you how much the gold melt value is worth when priced in bitcoins.

In order to make its conversion, the bitcoin calculator must first start with a base price for both gold and bitcoin that is denominated in a fiat currency.  The default fiat currency is U.S. Dollars, but you can change that to Euros, Pounds, Pesos or any one of 10 other currencies listed in a drop-down list.  The calculator is automatically populated with the current prices for both spot gold and bitcoin; however you can change those values to any other values of your choice.

Please note that the price of bitcoin, and the availability of a bitcoin price quote, can vary quite a bit from one bitcoin exchange to another.  The bitcoin price that is provided in the calculator should only be considered as an estimate that has been derived from one or more of the bitcoin exchanges.  You may need to enter the bitcoin price manually if the provided estimate seems off.  This new bitcoin calculator is now ready to use at:

Bitcoin Calculator for Silver

Last month I presented the first calculator on CoinApps.com dedicated to the virtual currency of bitcoin.  That calculator can be used to determine the melt value of gold items, measured by the weight unit of your choice, and with the final results given to you priced in bitcoin.  Today I am providing you with a new calculator that does the same thing, but this one is to be used with items made from silver.

If you’ve never heard of bitcoin, it’s a relatively new (2009) type of digital currency that can be stored in a virtual wallet on your computer or smartphone.  Bitcoin can be transferred to another person’s virtual wallet via the Internet, or by using smartphone technologies like: near field communication (NFC) or QR-code scanning.  People use bitcoin to buy things from participating merchants, or just to send money without the need for a bank account or the associated bank transfer fees.  For more info about bitcoin, check out: https://www.weusecoins.com/.

One of the things you can buy with your bitcoin is precious metals.  Coinabul is an online marketplace that sells popular gold and silver bullion coins, and everything is priced in bitcoin.  Bitmit is an eBay-style auction site where lots of folks list their gold and silver for sale in bitcoin.  Some people who trade bitcoin on the exchanges, like to cash out in gold and silver, rather than trying to withdraw their profits into the regular banking system via a wire transfer.

If you have a need to convert your bitcoin into gold or silver, or if you are looking to sell your precious metals in exchange for bitcoin, then the bitcoin calculators at CoinApps.com will come in quite handy.  You can use them to discover the spot prices for gold and silver, when converted into bitcoin.  Then you can know the bitcoin price you might be willing to pay, or wanting to ask, in exchange for those metals.  Simply choose the gold or silver calculator that you need from the links below:
