I heard that if you have newer coins that are in good condition that they can be worth money. I have some 2019 coins that look good. How can I check to see if they are even worth grading?

If a coin is MS-69+ and also free of damage, than it is probably worth the cost. Cleaned coins will not, and will be sent back as "improperly" or "harshly" cleaned and "Etc" DETAILS

to CCF. A coin needs to have a retail value of at least $150-200 after slabbing to justify all costs involved in grading.Most modern coins need to grade at least MS67. Here is a link on values http://www.numismedia.com/rarecoinprices/fmv.shtml

How to decide if a coin is worth grading?

Answer:
1. Grade the coin for yourself.
If you don't know how to grade, post a picture here in the CCF, and let us grade it for you.

2. Decide on the grading information you have received here, or have done for yourself, and look up the value according to grade in any of the recognized coin catalogs.

3. As a rule of thumb, if the value is less than $100, the cost of the grading and shipping fees is not justified.

4. The decision is made more easily, but that is still up to you.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Some of my coins are potentially valued at $thousands, but I really like to grade for myself, and slabs would be a very awkward inclusion in my collection.
Therefore, none of my coins are slabbed.
Fortunately, I have some highly professional numismatic specialist friends, who can authenticate any coin for which I may have some doubt. They have even authenticated museum coins.

Also worthy to note that museums never grade and slab their coins. One of the reasons, I guess, is that slabbing would severely interfere with how museum coins are displayed and stored.
Museums never value their coins.
They usually have the expertise to authenticate any and all of their coins.

This is my best coin. After making some adjustments on the microscope, I think I see scratches. I assume this would not be worth grading.

Oh well. Like Dustin Hoffman would say, "It's very shiny, though!"
