About the 90% Silver 1946-1951 Booker T. Washington Half Dollar (Avg Circ):

Even though modern circulating coins are no longer made of silver, you can still purchase these 90% silver half dollars, which were only produced very briefly. Silver half dollars were common in pocket change until the 1960s, when wise collectors picked them out of circulation and the US Mint eliminated silver from American coinage.

Highlights of these coins:

  • Legal tender coinage produced by the US Mint in 1946-1951.
  • Comprised of 90% silver, 10% copper; each coin contains about .3575 troy ounces of silver.
  • Coins will be average circulated
  • 90% silver half dollars are a commonly traded and widely recognized investment product.
  • Obverse: a bust of Booker T. Washington is depicted along with the date
  • Reverse: The "From Slave Cabin To Hall Of Fame", along with his birthplace

About the U.S. Mint:

The United States Mint produced 90% silver coinage from the 1790s to the 1960s. For most of American history, these coins were commonly encountered in everyday commerce. When silver prices rose due to inflation in the 1960s, the melt value of these coins began to exceed their face value, and wise collectors hoarded them. In 1965, faced with a dearth of circulating coinage, the Mint eliminated silver from most American coins. Today, most coins are made from a copper-nickel alloy and contain no silver.

Half dollars are a convenient way to own silver. Each coin contains a little over one-third ounces of pure silver. Should silver ever be used as a means of barter or become part of everyday commerce once again, these half dollars will be common and widely-accepted. Additionally, they are a special part of American numismatic history, as these beautiful coin designs have not been seen in everyday life for over a half century.
