Value: As a rough estimate of this coins value you can assume this coin in poor condition will be valued at somewhere around $1030, while one in "perfect" condition can bring $103000. This price does not reference any standard coin grading scale.

Additional Info: There are several variations of the 1796 Draped Bust Dollars, and as usual they can get a bit confusing. There is one version with 10 stars on the left and 6 stars on the right, 1 version with 9 stars on the left and 7 on the right with small letters, and then 1 version with 9 stars on the left and 7 stars on the right but with small lettering. The version with 9 stars on the left and 7 stars on the right but with small lettering must be harder to find because it tends to sell for 30% more than the other 2 versions.

Numismatic vs Intrinsic Value: This coin in poor condition is still worth $1016.87 more than the intrinsic value from silver content of $13.13, this coin is thus more valuable to a collector than to a silver bug. Coins worth more to a collectors may be a better long term investment. If the metal prices drop you will still have a coin that a numismatic would want to buy.

The numbers come from the United States mint, and they don't reflect coins that have been melted, destroyed, or those that have never been released. Please keep that in mind.
