How much are my U.S. 1923-S Monroe commemorative worth?

About 1923-S Monroe Silver Commemoratives

This 1923 commemorative half dollar marks the 100th anniversary of the Monroe Doctrine, a United States policy rebuking European colonialism in the Americas. The coin, designed by Chester Beach, features on its obverse President James Monroe (left) and Secretary of State John Quincy Adams, who authored the Monroe Doctrine.

Nearly 275,000 were struck and were issued for $1 each, but they were so common that they were worth little over face value during the Great Depression of the 1930s – many were spent. The majority are known in the grades of AU50 to about MS64, while MS65s are very scarce and pieces grading MS66 and higher are quite rare. Many are quite lustrous, but beware of surface marks on the coin’s many flat surfaces.

About CDN Prices

All CDN prices are based on proprietary market knowledge and technology developed by CDN Publishing, LLC.

CPG® prices represent retail levels. Collectors should refer to CPG values as a starting place for their negotiations, or auction bid reference.

Greysheet/Greensheet prices are wholesale market levels for collectible coins/paper money intended to indicate what a dealer, or wholesale, buyer would pay for the described item in the specified grade. Greysheet/Greensheet represent "sight-seen" values based on a buyer's in-hand review. The actual value can be more or less than this depending on factors including eye appeal and market timing.

Bluesheet (NGC & PCGS) prices represent the highest sight-unseen offers to buy on dealer networks like CDN Exchange. In many cases, there are no active sight-unseen buy offers, so CDN looks to the recent lowest market values for such an item. For this reason, Bluesheet values typically represent the floor of the market for the specified item. CDN only tracks Bluesheet on certain items.

CAC prices are for U.S. coins that meet the standards of the Certified Acceptance Corporation. You can learn more about CAC on their web site.

Price movement is indicated for price changes in the last 30 days.

The values listed are only indications. CDN Publishing, LLC does not buy or sell collectibles. Users are strongly encouraged to seek multiple sources of pricing before making a final determination of value. CDN Publishing is not responsible for typographical or database-related errors.
