Each $1 Face Increment of US Mint 90% Silver Coins contains roughly .715 Troy Ounces of Pure Silver! Orders will either be comprised of 90% Silver Half Dollars, Quarters, Dimes or combination. Combination and design types are at our discretion and lots may contain modern proof silver coins or modern commemoratives.
Prior to 1965, all U.S. coins intended for circulation that were larger than a nickel (i.e., dimes, quarters, half dollars, and dollars) were composed of 90% pure silver. The high intrinsic value of these coins relative to their face value caused them to quickly leave the marketplace when the cupro-nickel coins arrived. Though not officially designated as bullion coins, these 90% silver coins are, in fact, valued and traded for their bullion content. 90% silver coins are sold in assorted face value bags comprised of either a mix, or solid denomination of Roosevelt dimes, Washington quarters, and ’64 Kennedy half dollars which offer the investor an affordable, convenient, and easily divisible means of owning silver with a built-in guarantee: no matter what eventually happens to the price of silver, 90% silver coins will always be worth at least their face value. For this reason alone, 90% silver coins are highly appropriate as a hedge against more volatile investments.
