      Identify the coin you are trying to sell. To get the most for your coin, you first must know what the coin is. First, identify the country, which will be labeled on the coin. There are guidebooks available for both world and United States coins, and they are illustrated, so matching up the photo to your coin will allow you to clearly identify what you have. These books are typically available at libraries and large book stores.
