Hi. I have been saving coins since I was a child. Now I am interested in coin roll hunting. Is there a list I can find somewhere online that will tell me which coins I should be keeping for pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters (Washington's, State, Parks, etc...), half dollars, dollars (Susan B's, Presidential, Sacajawea's, etc...)? Also are there certain $2 dollar bills that are more valuable than others, if so where can I find out which ones? Is there any denomination of paper money that is worth looking for, and if so what would that be? If anyone can help me with this, I would be extremely grateful. Thank you everyone and good luck hunting!

Possibly your best thing would be to try to buy a copy of what is called the Red Book by Whitman Publishing. It is a book that has lots of info and approximate values of most coins.

The reason why I ask is because I have seen online where it says certain coins contain more silver or where you should keep anything before a certain year. I was just hoping someone could give me that information instead of me randomly looking up on different sites and not knowing whether it is accurate.

It's also worth mentioning that Jefferson nickels 1943-1945 (and some 1942) are 35% silver. In my experience, these are more likely to be found than the pre-1964 dimes and quarters, because they don't look as different. They are VERY easy to spot because all of them have a large mint mark (P, D or S) above the dome of Monticello, and no other nickels do.

Happy hunting, and let us know how it goes!
