Product Description

90% Silver Coins Prior to 1965, the United States Mint produced dimes, quarters, and half dollars that contained 90% silver. These coins were used for circulation purposes. However, as the intrinsic precious metal value became higher than the face value, pre-1965 silver coins began to disappear from circulation. As prices increased over the years, 90% silver coins quickly became a vehicle for silver investing, and they are now one of the most popular bullion products on the market. How much silver is in 90% Coins? Junk silver is always bought and sold in terms of face value, regardless of quantity or denomination. The amount of silver in $1.00 face value of dimes (10 x $.10) is equivalent to $1.00 face value of quarters (4 x $.25) or halves (2 x $.50). For every $1.00 face value of 90% silver, there is .715 of a troy ounce of silver. So if you buy $100 face value of junk silver, you will buy approximately 71.5 troy ounces of silver. A full bag of junk silver is $1,000 face value, or approximately 715 troy ounces of actual silver weight.
