$1 Face Value 90% Silver Coins

90% Silver Currency (Junk Silver)

Before 1965, many of the coins in everyday circulation were minted from an alloy made with a combination of 90% pure silver and 10% pure copper.

The denominations of coins minted with this alloy include Roosevelt and Mercury dimes, Washington and Barber Quarters, Franklin and Walking Liberty half-dollars.

Junk silver carries a significant historical legacy. It refers to U.S. coins minted before 1965 that contain 90% silver content. These coins were once in everyday circulation but are now valued for their silver content. Owning junk silver allows you to hold a tangible piece of history.

These 90% silver coins were pulled from circulation with the introduction of copper/nickel clad coins and the rising industrial demand for silver in the 1960s. Many in the public hoarded them for their 90% silver content as a rainy day fund they could fall back on.

Buying junk silver coins is a great way to start your silver investments.

The coins in these dealer listings are random lots based on what each may have in stock at the time of order. They could contain a mix of dimes, quarters and half dollars. The coins you receive when ordering from these listings will have been minted of 90% silver from before the introduction of copper clad currency in 1965.

Most common in these lots are Roosevelt dimes from 1946-1964, Washington quarters from 1932-1964, 1964 Kennedy half-dollars or Franklin half-dollars from 1948-1963. The coins will typically be in circulated condition and will contain a mix of dates.

Each $1 Face Value of 90% silver coins contains .715 troy ounces of silver as these are unlikely to include silver dollar coins. $1 silver coins, like Morgan and Peace dollars contain .7734 and many of those hold numismatic premiums.
