Silver dollars can be sold at auctions, coin shows and conventions, or through private arrangements between collectors. Dealers in precious metals also buy silver coins of any type for their raw metal value.
Sellers should always research the value of coins prior to sale by getting appraisals from coin-collecting organizations or by looking at the sale prices of similar coins and collections. Cointstudy.com recommends frequent reassessment of a collection due to fluctuations in the market price of silver. When selling rare coins, always put in the leg work to know fair value, and consider bids from multiple buyers to ensure the best deal.
