Pre-1965 90% 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 90% Silver content as a rainy day fund they can fall back on.
Which dimes are Silver? Prior to 1965, dimes were made of 90% Silver. These Silver dimes have a melt value greater than 10 cents due to their Silver content. Silver dimes, as well as similar U.S. coinage, are sometimes referred to as "junk Silver."
The history of Silver Roosevelt Dimes
These Silver coins for sale were first authorized by the Coinage Act of 1792 as the disme, the first Silver coin to represent one tenth the Silver weight and value of a dollar. Silver coins known as dimes were not issued until 1796, and since that time six different dimes have been produced, with Roosevelt Silver dimes being the most recent type. Silver Roosevelt dimes containing 90% Silver were minted from 1946 until 1964, at which time the Coinage Act of 1965 went into effect, changing the composition of the Silver dime to a Copper-clad composition containing no Silver.
Why invest in Silver Roosevelt Dimes?
The size of Silver Roosevelt Dimes makes them appealing to investors because the Silver dimes can be traded in smaller amounts than larger Silver bullion such as 1 oz American Silver Eagles. These Silver coins, also known as junk Silver even though they are worth much more than their face value, carry the bulk of their value in their Silver content, and have very little, if any, numismatic or collector value. When buying the Silver coins for sale, the lack of collector value keeps the Silver price down, making it closer to the Silver spot price. Buying Silver at a lower price point allows investors to maximize their purchase of rolls of 90% Silver Roosevelt Dimes.
