U.S.90% Silver Coin
Versatility and Divisibility
United States Silver Coin consists of old dimes, quarters and half dollars minted 1964 and earlier. These old U.S. Silver coins have many attractive features that make them a popular seller. Some of these features are:
• Legal Tender Status – These coins actually circulated in the past and they are still legal tender in the U.S. Many people purchase 90% silver coin as insurance against the possibility of the failure of the U.S. Dollar. If that scenario came to pass, 90% silver coin would make an excellent medium of exchange since it is already in a recognizable coin form.
• Divisibility – The 90% silver dime contains only 1/14th of an ounce of silver. Smaller units of silver are more convenient to sell when necessary. The small size of 90% silver coins also make them ideal for customers that purchase small amounts of silver periodically.
• Historic Value – The newest 90% silver coins are over 50 years old now. A mixed group of 90% silver coins will contain an interesting variety of dates and types of coins minted over the past century. Some types, particularly the half dollars, already command premiums because of their perceived collectability. As more time passes, these historic coins may gain a collector base that adds to their value.
Liberty Coin Service sells 90% silver coin in any quantity. The standard unit we sell is the $1,000.00 which contains 715 ounces of pure silver. (One ounce of pure silver is equal to $1.40 U.S. 90% Silver coin.) Premiums on 90% silver coin are higher than they are for pure silver items like one, ten, and hundred ounce silver bars due to demand for customers that prefer the coin as a possible exchange medium. The premiums are lower compared to government issued pure silver coins like the Silver Maple Leaf and Silver Eagle.
