Silver and Flatware/Silver prime minister spoons


Have 11 silver tea spoons with prime ministers name and face on them. They start with sir John a MacDonald 1867 and with Pierre Trudeau. Names and dates of office are on them. Am considering selling, however have no idea of price.  Thank you.


I am not an expert in "souvenir" spoons like this. I have observed that the value varies greatly depending upon how many collectors are out there in the marketplace. If the spoons say "Sterling" on the back, they will have a greater value.

My guess is that sterling spoons like this would sell in the range of $15 to $20 each while non-sterling spoons would sell for $5 to $10 each. However, I could be woefully wrong! I recommend checking sites like eBay to see what similar spoons have actually sold for.

Best wishes,
