Very recently inherited some coinage & 'Medals' that I'd like to get 'ballparkish' values on.

For example 2013 $5 gold coins, America's First Medals, Prestige Sets, Korean War Memorial coins etc.

Recommendation re something Amazon and/or my local Barnes & Noble would have that would cover all such? Or updatable software?

In advance...many many sincere thanks & a happy 4th weekend!!

I would search the on NGC, but that's just me. The 5$ coin has about $180 in gold.

You're welcome, keep in mind the prices they list are for graded coins.

eBay with "sold items" option checked will give likely the best idea of what people are actually paying for items.

I have to agree with Earle. Ebay gives you a really good sense of what stuff is going for.

The ebay sold reality makes total sense. I will check that out.

Thanks to both of you!

The guidance that a rookie finds quite useful!

When using the NGC or PCGS market values I tend to subtract around 20-30% from them, especially if yours are not graded and slabbed by them.

Also look at NumisMedia FMV @ http://www.coinprices.org/ I find their site to be fairly accurate on the classic coins. Pricing can be tough as almost any book will be out of date as to current price by the time it's published and hits the store. Online sold pricing is really the best example, but can still be problematic if you are pricing coins that are not generic and almost exactly the same as yours. So also take the online prices with a grain of salt knowing that fact.
