United States Silver Coins

Average circulated common date dimes, quarters, half dollars, and silver dollars minted in 1964 and earlier are commonly referred to as 90% silver or junk silver coins. These coins are extremely recognizable, highly liquid, and popular among coin collectors, silver bullion investors, and survivalists alike. The silver coins we purchase are appraised based on their condition, the metals they contain, and the year they were minted. Dimes, quarters, and silver dollars minted after The Coinage Act of 1965 contain no silver content and are typically not worth much more than the face value of the coins.

US Silver Dollars (1935 and earlier)

Silver Dollars: Those minted by the U.S. Mint for general circulation between 1794 and 1935 contain 90% silver. The most widely traded silver dollars in the U.S. are Morgan silver dollars (1878 to 1921) and Peace silver dollars (1921 to 1935). Most silver dollars minted after 1935 do not contain silver except for certain special edition and commemorative silver dollars.

Shown in the picture above are a 1884 Morgan dollar and a 1921 Peace dollar.
