Important Note: 90% silver coins are counted into bags by machine and your order will include either dimes or quarters, not both.
One of the most popular ways to invest in silver bullion is buying U.S. pre-1965 silver coins. Junk silver bags are considered to be fractional silver bullion. They provide an easy way to add multiple ounces of silver to any investor's collection. Unlike other silver US coins for sale, junk silver coins don't include any additional refining or minting fees. Commonly referred to as "junk silver coins," this name developed in the 1970s and is used to describe average circulated U.S. silver coins, meaning no rare coins are included.
All silver coins struck in 1964 or earlier were minted with 90% silver and 10% copper. Please note: the copper content of these coins is excluded from any calculation of pricing, only the silver content is valued! Each dollar of face value contains .715 ounces of actual silver content, so a full junk silver bag ($1,000.00 face value) contains 715 ounces of silver. There is no additional premium added to pricing of these coins based on condition or collectible silver coins value – each order will include a variety of minting dates and coin conditions. Money Metals Exchange offers this form of silver starting in bags of $5.00 face value.
In terms of purchasing power, a silver dime today is worth nearly the same as it was back when it circulated as common money. In nominal terms, a silver dime today is, of course, worth a lot more than its 10 cent face value. A silver dime contains approximately 2.22 grams of silver. That works out to approximately $1.79 worth of silver, assuming the recent spot price of $25.00 per ounce.
Pre-1965 quarters contain 5.55 grams of silver. That’s $4.46 in silver value with spot prices $25.00 per ounce.
Some silver dimes and quarters may have additional collectible value depending on mint marks and/or condition making them a great option for those coin collecting. However, most circulated pre-1965 dimes and quarters are sold as “junk” and trade close to their intrinsic melt value in silver. Occasionally, premiums on buying junk silver coins rise when the market for these no longer minted products gets tight.
Money Metals Exchange now offers mercury dimes for sale for a small upcharge.
Junk silver dimes and quarters do offer several advantages. First, they provide small increments of barter. Secondly, like silver rounds, this form of silver coinage generally carries a low premium over the spot market price of silver -- unless during situations of physical supply shortages. (In other words, the market value of "junk silver" is very close to the actual melt value of the junk coins.) Thirdly, they are legal U.S. tender (albeit only for the face value). Finally, junk silver bags are recognized around the world as a trading medium and are therefore very liquid. You can buy silver bullion coins online or by calling Money Metals Exchange at 1-800-800-1865.

Ordered by phone for this set of Silver Dimes. Fairly happy. I received 10 Mercury Dimes, the rest were various years. One was a 1968 dime though, and was clearly copper around the edge. Otherwise, good junk silver dimes.

My first time buying this item. I am trying to build up my smaller bullion assets and I figured these great American silver coins would be the best way. I received all quarters with a wide variety of dates and mint marks. Thanks MMX for the excellent service as always.

These are great coins as a first item of barter but also as way to teach the next generation the value of money and history of the USA monetary system.

The delivery time was fast and very well packaged. I got all quarters as advertised, 1 quarter had what appeared to be red nail polish on it. Overall very satisfied with the service and the product. Thanks Again.

Did not receive any quarters with my $20 order but got all years except 1955. Majority were 1963/1964. I am no judge of coin condition but most were circulated with some dirt and grime from handling over the years. My goal is to have coins from all mints and years 1946 to 1964. They are 90% silver and a piece of history. Overall had fun checking them out and educating myself.
