Are old coins and metals worth anything?

I have a bunch of old coins and metals that I have saved through the years. I was wondering if they would be worth anything now, or if I could sell them to somebody.

Aside from the metal itself, the value regarding coins depends also upon their nationality. US coins are popular among collectors in the US, whereas coins from countries such as Canada or Mexico can hardly be given away in the US. Craigslist and E-Bay would be good places to compare your coins with others' or to try to sell them.

Yes, old coins and metals are worth money. Depending on the condition of the coins, you can sell them to coin collectors and the metal to scrap yards.

If they contain silver or gold, they have value simply for the precious metal content. Older coins, like pre-1965 dimes and nickels, are valuable for both silver and collecting.
