About $1000 Bags of 90% Silver Quarters

Even though modern circulating coins are no longer made of silver, you can still purchase these 90% silver quarters. Silver quarters 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 Barber, Standing Liberty, or Washington quarters, or some combination thereof.
  • 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 4,000 ($1000 face value per bag; 715 oz silver content).
  • 90% silver quarters 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 a paper $100 bill in 1965, you’d still have $100; but a bag of quarters is now worth many, many times that!

Quarters 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 quarters 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. The Washington quarter design is actually still in production, but examples made since 1965 have not contained silver.

These quarters are packaged in bags of 4,000 coins a piece. Each bag contains $1000 face value worth of coins. There are approximately 715 troy ounces of pure silver in each bag. These bags are an affordable and popular way to own low premium silver.
