What is the value of a 1957 A US 1 dollar silver certificate?


Answered Last

1957 silver certificates are quite common among collectors. Huge numbers of these were saved when the government announced that the series would be discontinued.

As of 03/2010, a circulated 1957 A bill retails for $1.25 to $1.50 but a dealer is unlikely to pay more than face value (1 dollar). A nice uncirculated one might sell for around $3 and a dealer might pay about $2.

It's normally not necessary to provide a bill's serial number. Serial numbers are counters and a security feature but rarely affect a bill's value or help to identify it. Some collectors will pay extra for numbers with a

special pattern, e.g. 12345678, or low numbers such as 00000015.

1957 is the single most common date for $1 silver certificates. That was the last series date printed before the denomination was reissued as a Federal Reserve Note beginning in 1963, so huge numbers of them were saved as keepsakes and hoped-for rarities. However there are still so many available that more than half a century later an average-condition bill retails for only about $1.50.

$1.25 to $1.50 if circulated, about $3 if uncirculated and unfolded. Series 1957 silver certificates are common among collectors. That was the last series year for $1 silver certificates, so a lot of them were saved.
