I would recommend getting it appraised at a coin shop. Any coin shop would do except maybe Canadian coin and currency, they sell good coins but IMO they offer lower value.

As Mike says, it would help if we knew where you live or the coins are located. Also the approx number of coins you are talking about, the estimated date ranges and the denominations. Have you picked up any coin books/guides that you you an approximation of what they may be worth?

Hello and welcome. You have come to a great place, there is a lot of great people and resources here.

As a rough start you can look here, http://www.coinsandcanada.com it is a great free resource to get an idea what stuff is/is not valuable. The listed prices are higher than what anyone generally pays (same way in all books).

As others said a bit more detail is helpful, as a rough guide. Condition is important and there are some exceptions to this.

1908 and earlier generally has decent value
1908 to 1967 some value
1968+ usually just face value unless in mint state
Canadian Mint collector coins(usually packaged in plastic or a case), are often not worth more than face value or value of precious metal content (gold/silver/etc).

Is this for legal reasons insurance/estate/etc... or general interest or personal interest?

A few words of caution
1. Don't clean anything, it is the fastest way to destroy value.
2. Don't sell to appraiser, get a neutral opinion
3. If selling, take a bit of time to understand what you have. If selling to a coin shop, get multiple offers
4. If asking about value on this site, people will want to see pictures, they really are worth a thousand words

Good luck and don't be afraid to ask questions, there are lots of helpful people here

With silver at 32.70 Canadian and, with each face "dollar" containing .6 oz of silver, each "dollar" is worth a little less that $20 Canadian. A face dollar is any number of various denomination coins equaling 1 dollar. Be is dimes, quarters or silver dollars, every face dollar from about 1920 on to 1967 is worth just under $20 as scrap silver alone, let alone any numismatic collector value. Those previous to 1920 are worth a little more, since those are .925 Ag, rather than .800 Ag.

In the words of Dolly Parton, isn't that .925 AG before 1920?

Yes, it's .925 pre-1920, not .900. I was thinking of some EU silver

I have older Canadian Pennies, silver dollars, older Canadian and mexican currency. Lots of RCM mint uncirculated stuff as well. There isn't a good coin shop I could take this all too. Looking for help. Possibly want to start selling...

If you could post a clear photo of both sides of any of the coins ( not the RCM coins) that you think have value,
someone here will be able to help you in evaluating some of your collection.
It would be fairly expensive to have it appraised. Please just one coin per thread.
Looking forward to see what you have.

Next step is probably to take a few pictures that would give a general overview of what the collection is, how big it is and how it is stored. Eg. Loose change, bags, holders, binders, books etc... post a couple pictures to give us an idea, nothing elaborate or specific, just to give a general sense.

When handling coins, make sure to wash hands and avoid touching the big surfaces of the coins. Fingerprints are not your friend. Gloves are recommended, especially if uncirculated coins are being handled.

If things are in a case/holder, don't handle yet.

It can be overwhelming at first, but if you group it into more manageable pieces, it becomes a lot easier.
