Pre-1965 35% Silver coins, sometimes referred to as junk Silver or scrap Silver, are a great way to start your Silver investments. These Silver coins were pulled from circulation with the introduction of copper/nickel clad coins and the rising demand of Silver. The public saved them for their 35% Silver content as a rainy day fund they can fall back on.

Great Junk Silver!!

By  Coltbreath

from Mesa AZ.

5.0

I bought these War nickels because they are a great Junk silver value. I love the fact that these nickels were a slight departure from the normal mint mark scheme. They came as expected slightly dark from years of service, but the dates and mint marks were clearly visible. A great historical coin!!

Pros

  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Attractive Design
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Easy to Sell
  • Mint Condition
  • Recognized Brand

Ordered $40 face and $0.40 were not silver (1%). APMEX made everything right and the process was virtually painless. War nickels are a great value for the thrifty silver investor.

Little Piece of History...

By  C

from NC

5.0

I purchased two rolls of these 35% Silver War Nickels. The rolls I received contained a good selection of years and mint marks which I used to help complete my Jefferson Nickel Collection. Condition ranged from Good-4 to Fine-12. All years and mint marks clearly readable. Surplus coins will be added to my stack for silver content...and I am ordering four more rolls.

Very Nice Coins

By  The American Redhead

from Denver, CO

4.0

I ordered $3 face value of these nickels to try to fill up my book. They are a very inexpensive way to obtain silver, but at a cost of condition. Most were black or really dark, a few were damaged, and a few more were scratched. Another issue was that I didn't get all 11 different war nickels, but i wasn't really expecting to get all of them. Overall however, I am pleased with my purchase, and will probably buy more in the future.

Pros

  • Recognized Brand
  • Attractive Design
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Value (low premium over spot)

Cons

  • Poor Condition
  • Lack Of Variety

Ver Cool item

By  Ryan

These are very cool. Still wrapped in a coin roll, these war nickels look very nice. The outer coins look to be in good condition and the price compared to spot price is quite reasonable. I would definitely recommend to others!

Pros

  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Attractive Design
  • Value (low premium over spot)

Silver at a low premium!

By  Aaron

from San Dimas, CA

4.0

I enjoy collecting US silver coins, so these were a must have for me. The premiums are also lower on these nickels than on 90% silver US coins. I would recommend, however, that you unwrap and confirm that the coins have the proper mint mark (above Montecito) and the rolls contain the full 20 coins. I've purchased about a dozen of these one dollar rolls, with one roll a coin short, and another with a non-silver 1942 (both types were minted that year).

Pros

  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Easy to Sell
  • Recognized Brand
