TQC I have reached the end of my google-fu and need your help!

My great aunt bought me quite a number of coins from Publishers Clearing House throughout the years and now I would like to know their value (if any). Some are Canadian coins and some are American, they come from two places, The Morgan Mint and The First Commemorative Mint. Unfortunately there is limited resources in my area for coin experts, and eBay searches have turned up not quite what I need.

Any idea on value of them (obviously it'll vary from coin to coin but in general), and/or has anyone sold any successfully before?

tl/dr: What documentary should I watch next?

Try contacting a coin collector in your area? They may have either the knowledge or resources you need to get to.

When i collected coins I checked out books from the library on coin values. They might have something that matches for your kinds of coins?

You'll have to share what kind of coins they are. What's the value minted on them? What's the year? If you search for 1 Canadian Dollar from XY mint, year 19xx, or "quarter gold maple leaf" you may get a better answer.

For gold coins your bank can often give you the current value. Ask for bid and ask values - they often differ significantly.

Other than that I can't help without knowing the exact coin.

There is close to 100 of them, various years and values. They also are all in their plastic sleeves (similar to the ones that you can buy at Canada post), as others have suggested they seem to be the "scam" coin type I just didn't know if they still had any value since they've clearly been cleaned and such.

I assumed as much :/ I just didn't know if they still carried any value to people who don't seriously collect
