About the Tube of 90% Silver Proof Washington Quarters (PR) - $10 Face Value

Proof coins were produced by the U.S. Mint with collectors in mind. Getting pristine proof coins is getting harder and harder to find. Please note that these rolls could be mixed date or all the same date depending on what we have available.

Highlights of these Coins:

  • These rolls will be comprised of dates between 1955-1964.
  • The dates included will be random within the range of 1955-1964, they may all be the same date or they may be mixed dates, depending on our stock.
  • Comprised of 90% silver, 10% copper; each dollar of face value contains about 0.723 troy ounces of silver.
  • Packaged in convenient tubes of 40 ($10 face value per tube). 

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.

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 $10 bill in 1965, you’d still have $10; but a roll of pre-1965 Washington quarters is now worth many, many times that!

These Washington quarters might look familiar, as the design has been continually produced since 1932. However, all of these 90% silver quarters are now more than a half century old! They were only produced until 1964; circulation quarters made from 1965 on do not contain any silver. John Flanagan’s design was introduced for George Washington’s 200th birthday. Mintages in the first few years were low due to the Great Depression, but the Washington quarter quickly gained in popularity and is now one of the most recognizable American coins. Each 90% silver Washington quarter contains a little under one-fifth ounces of pure silver.

These quarters are packaged in convenient tubes of 40 coins apiece. Each tube contains $10 face value worth of coins, just like once-common rolls of silver quarters. There is approximately 7.15 troy ounces of pure silver in each tube. These tubes are an affordable and popular way to own low premium silver.

Larger bags of $100 face value are also available.

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

Review by James
I ordered 2 tubes of proof quarters dates were advertised as being between 1955-1964. I ask customer service chat if I could please get mixed dates and he said he would put a note on my order but that it depended on what they had in stock. I received 1956, 1957, 1961 & 1964. The 57s we're almost all deep cameo and 70% were spotless, meaning no spots or dings, the 56s we're about 30% spotless, the 61s 50/50, the 64s unfortunately we're all spotted and many were scuffed as well. Overall, very beautiful coins and I am very pleased with the order, thank you! I'll be ordering again shortly. (Posted on 3/5/2019)
