About 90% Silver Modern Coins - $1 Face Value Avg Circ (Dimes, Quarters or Half Dollars)

Many people believe the U.S. Mint stopped issuing 90% silver coins in 1964. While this is true for business strikes (i.e. coins make for circulation), the U.S. Mint continues to strike 90% silver for collectors. These coins are issued in proof sets at high premiums, but we were able to buy some at a premium close to melt. These modern coins are struck in 90% silver and have the exact same content as pre-1965 "junk" silver coins. If anything, these are in much better condition and are harder to find!

Highlights of these coins:

  • Legal tender coinage produced by the US Mint
  • Comprised of 90% silver, 10% copper; each dollar of face value contains about .72 troy ounces of silver.
  • These coins are NOT minted 1964 or before. They are modern proof silver issues from the U.S. Mint.
  • Packaged in vinyl flips for purchases of $1 Face Value. Packaged in convenient tubes for purchases of $10 Face Value and bags for larger quantities.
  • You may receive all of one denomintaion of coins or a mixture.
  • 90% silver coins are a commonly traded and widely recognized investment product.
  • Since their value is based primarily on silver content rather than collectible value, “junk silver” coins are one of the lowest-premium US Mint products available.

All orders from Monument Metals are guaranteed as described, shipped discretely, and fully insured.

It's hard to believe that you can get a deal like this on 90% silver PROOF coins. My first order arrived as all dimes. They were in spectacular condition and looked like they had just been broken out of the silver proof sets - no fingerprints, no smudges, no cuts/abrasions, no toning, no milk spots. My second order arrived as all quarters. It was fun looking through the quarters and admiring the various state and national park designs on the reverse of the coins, all in sharp detail. The only downside is that the quarters had marks and abrasions as though they had been placed in bags and jostled a bit (equivalent to similar bag marks for BU Morgans). That said, there were no fingerprints, no smudges, no toning, and no milk spots on the quarters - and they were certainly MUCH better condition than 90% silver quarters from 1964 and older. Overall, this is a GREAT and fun alternative to "traditional" 90% "junk" silver - and less expensive! (Posted on 8/28/2020)
