Silver Coins - 90% Silver coins were the basis for our currency for hundreds of years until 1965. When the price of Silver started increasing and approaching its monetary value, the government replaced our trusted Silver coin with a coin made of worthless metal! Shortly thereafter, the American public started hoarding these older Silver coins. During the large Silver melts of the 1980s, millions of these coins were refined into Silver bars and other forms. Since then, these items have become more scarce and more desirable.
Over the years, many people have bought these bags with the understanding that they may need them for bartering in the future, should the U.S. dollar collapse and people need to revert back to a gold and silver standard. These coins would be the most widely recognized and easily traded forms of silver due to their small size and ease of liquidity. We offer you the ability to buy this type of silver in small increments of $1 through full $1,000 face-value bags with several increments in between this wide range. All $1,000 face-value bags will contain our choice of 10,000 dimes, 4,000 quarters, 2,000 half-dollars, or a mixture of dimes, quarters or half-dollars that totals $1,000 in face value.
In 1965, at the direction of Congress, when the U.S. Mint removed all Silver from dimes and quarters, the Silver content in half-dollars was reduced to 40%. Thus, the half-dollars began to be manufactured from 40% Silver and 60% copper. These coins were minted from 1965 to 1969 for circulation. After that, all coins consisted of a copper and nickel composition. We offer these coins in similar quantities.
