News-Antique.com - Jul 19,2007 - What's a coin worth? It's a question that surfaces often in life -- not necessarily when counting change at McDonald's, but at other times, like:
-When a great-grandparent bequeaths a coin collection to remaining family.
-When returning from a foreign country and taking note of leftover currency.
-When the nightly news carries stories like the Tampa treasure hunters who found $500 million worth of coins in an Atlantic Ocean shipwreck.
