Buy 40% Silver Half Dollars in Bulk for Less than Melt Value!

Atlanta Gold and Coin Buyers is pleased to announce that we have a large inventory of 40% silver half dollars that we’re selling at below melt value for a limited time.  While our inventory varies on a daily basis due to activity, you can always find our current inventory of coins here.

In a recent post we identified 40% silver Kennedy half dollars as one of the cheapest ways to invest in silver bullion. This point is further illustrated through our current offering of silver half dollars for below the melt value of the coins.

You may be wondering how to calculate the melt value of 40% silver half dollars.  The formula is as follows:  multiple the spot price of silver (the current price of silver per troy ounce) x .0321507466 x 11.5 x .40 to arrive at the melt value per coin.  This may be difficult to remember, but you can always check with us to obtain up to the minute pricing information.

Due to the fact that we’re selling 40% silver half dollars below the melt value of the coins, we’re currently requiring a minimum purchase of 100 silver coins.  On the surface, buying 100 silver coins sounds like a large financial investment; however, since these coins contain less silver content than U.S. silver dimes, quarters, and half dollars minted in 1964 and earlier, and since we’re selling these coins below their melt value, a bulk purchase of this magnitude will only currently run in the neighborhood of $400.

Considering that the stock market appears to be a bit shaky and the bond market is offering yields below the inflation rate, buying 40% silver half dollars in bulk appears to be a wise choice.

We also have a fairly large inventory of silver war nickels, one of the other coin types that we highlighted in a previous post, that we’re selling below the melt value of the coins.  For those folks that are interested, the melt value calculation for these coins is as follows: Spot price of silver x .0321507466 × 5.00 × .35.

In summary, if you’re in the market to acquire silver bullion at reasonable prices, buying 40% silver half dollars in bulk below melt value appears to be a wise investment.  We also have plenty of other silver coins and bullion in stock, so no matter what your silver coin and bullion needs may be, Atlanta Gold & Coin Buyers would love to be your silver coin dealer of choice.  Give us a call today at 404-236-9744 or drop us an e-mail at  We look forward to hearing from you and earning your business!
