Pre-1965 40% 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 40% Silver content as a rainy day fund they can fall back on.

Beautiful Coin, 'End of Roll Toning'

By  Mike

from Jacksonville, NC


I always liked the Eisenhower Silver Dollars, that's why I always buy one per order. I love 'The Eagle Has Landed' Motif on the Reverse of the coin. It reminds me of what the US can do when it gets its stuff together. The Order came in a new storage box with 4 layers of neoprene foam rubber pads. However 5 of 7 Plastic Flips suffered catastrophic failures and a reed on the edge of this coin was damaged. The company offered a reasonable solution, but due to relocating across the country and other factors, I've decided to live with the damage.
