U.S. Silver Coins

Average circulated common date dimes, quarters, half dollars, and silver dollars minted in 1964 and earlier are commonly referred to as 90% silver or junk silver coins. These coins are recognizable the world over, are highly liquid, and are popular among coin collectors, silver bullion investors and survivalists alike.

Half dollars minted from 1965 – 1970 are commonly referred to as 40% silver or half clad coins. Dimes, quarters, and silver dollars minted after 1965 contain no silver content and are typically not worth much more than the face value of the coins.

American silver eagles, which were first minted in 1986, and remain in production today, contain one troy ounce of .999 fine silver. These coins are U.S. legal tender and have a face value of $1.
