Atlanta Gold & Coin Buyers is pleased to announce that we’ve recently acquired a number of junk silver coins, consisting of silver dimes, quarters, and half dollars, that we’re selling at industry leading rates. An inventory of the junk silver coins that we have in stock can be found on our coin inventory page.
Junk silver coins are some of the most popular silver coins in existence. For one, silver dimes, quarters, and half dollars minted in 1964 and earlier are recognizable by investors and collectors alike. Individuals that are familiar with silver coins are aware that these coins contain 90% silver, and understand how to price the coins accordingly.
While on the subject of price, junk silver coins are sold primarily for their silver content as opposed to their collectible value, so they can be had at prices close to the melt value of the coins. Dimes and quarters are typically sold at slightly lower rates than half dollars, due to the higher demand of silver half dollars.
Not only are junk silver coins recognizable and affordable, but they can be purchased in small quantities, which means that individuals from all financial means can participate in the silver market. While most junk silver coins are purchased by the roll or by the bag, other quantities of silver coins can be acquired based on the budget of the silver coin buyer.
The condition of junk silver coins varies, but because they’re purchased primarily for their silver content, the expectation is that these coins have been in circulation, so they likely have some wear or toning. Silver coins that have substantial wear, such as worn rims or worn or partial dates, are often referred to as “cull” silver coins. Cull silver coins should be bought and sold solely based on the weight of the coins. No premium should be paid for these coins.
In summary, junk silver coins provide investors and collectors with a number of benefits, including a liquid market, due to the fact that they’re highly recognizable, affordable, and can be purchased in various quantities, including small purchases for silver coin buyers with limited discretionary income.
