About $50 Bags of 90% Silver US Coinage

Even though modern circulating coins are no longer made of silver, you can still purchase these 90% silver coins. These coins 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. They are still prized by both collectors and investors.

Here are some highlights of these coins:

  • Legal tender coinage produced by the US Mint 1892-1964.
  • You may receive our choice of dimes, quarters, or half dollars, or some combination thereof. The coins you receive may all be of one type or a mix of different coins.
  • Silver was removed from most US coinage in 1965.
  • These coins are comprised of 90% silver, 10% copper; each dollar of face value contains about 0.715 troy ounces of silver.
  • Packaged in canvas bags of $50 face value per bag (35.75 oz pure silver content per bag).
  • 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.

 

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.

However, circulated 90% silver coins are still traded as an investment product around the world. These coins are sometimes referred to as “junk silver” because they are in circulated condition, but make no mistake: they are a wise investment, indeed. If you put away $500 in cash in 1965, you’d still have $500; but a bag of silver coins is now worth many, many times that!

These 90% silver coins are a convenient way to own silver. Should silver ever be used as a means of barter or become part of everyday commerce once again, these coins will be common and widely-accepted. Additionally, they are a special part of American numismatic history, as some of these beautiful coin designs have not been seen in everyday life for over a half century.

These coins are packaged in bags of $50 (by total face value). There is approximately 35.75 troy ounces of pure silver in each bag. These bags are an affordable and popular way to own low premium silver.

I ordered one $50 bag and received 500 dimes. Two were Mercury dimes and the other 498 were Roosevelts ... but among the Roosevelts were 34 coins that were between AU and Proof grade, including a sparkling uncirculated-quality 1946-D! Although I was not specifically looking for numismatic coins, these 34 were a surprise. ALL of the dimes were NOT culls, a departure from other companies that routinely throw in a generous number of culls. Kudos to Monument Metals. They continue to demonstrate they are a top-notch destination for silver rounds, "junk" silver, and a variety of quality silver, gold, platinum, and numismatic items! A GREAT company!!

Fifty bucks worth of dimes...all mine! No culls or unreadable dates. Even a couple of Mercury dimes. Fast shipping, secure and anonymous packaging. (Posted on 6/11/2018)

This was my first order with Monument and it was a great experience. Almost every coin is in excellent condition, I was pleasantly surprised. I have ordered bags of 90 percent from other companies, but this was the best by far. Thanks (Posted on 4/27/2018)
