As recently as the year 1964, the United States government struck minted currency of 90 percent silver. 90% silver coins struck prior to 1964 are considered 'junk silver' in the vernacular of precious metal buyers and sellers. This informal use of the word 'junk' does not devalue the investment potential offered by these coins. Junk silver coins are usually sold by the bag. A face value of $1000 90% silver coins weighs around 715 ounces. See our silver bullion page to see what a full bag of 90% silver coins bag is going for at this moment. If you're interested in precious metals as an investment opportunity, junk coins may be something that you wish to consider. See the current price of gold, silver and platinum on our home page. We always provide up to the minute prices on a variety of precious metals.
Good examples of 90% silver coins are the American Morgan silver dollar and Canadian Maple Leaf. The US mint struck Morgan dollars from 1878 through 1921. Half dollars such as the Walking Liberty and the Franklin are ninety percent silver. Up until 1964, the Kennedy fifty cent piece was also ninety percent silver; from 1965 until the mint stopped striking them, Kennedys contained a mere forty percent silver. Mercury and Liberty Head dimes from the first half of the twentieth century are 90% silver and worth far more than their face value.
