The silver coins in this context have melt value only.
But in this case, coins melt value is not the point.

Paid $25 each for 2.5 ounces each of +90% silver is about 45% of the melt value as pieces of silver tableware.
That is a bargain. Congratulations!

As pieces of silver tableware, the total value of them both is going to be more than $50.

I assume the silver Lincoln medallion is 90% silver, the same as the Peruvian One Sol-KM#196.3, but I am otherwise unfamiliar with the Lincoln medallion.
