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 U.S. 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 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 $10.00 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 $1.22 worth of silver, assuming the recent spot price of $17.00 per ounce.
Pre-1965 quarters contain grams of silver. That’s $3.05 in silver value with spot prices $17.00 per ounce.
Some silver dimes and quarters may have additional collectible value depending on mint marks and/or condition. 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 junk silver 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.
Silver quarters and dimes do offer several advantages. First, they provide small increments of barter. Secondly, like silver rounds, this form of silver 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 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 coins online or by calling Money Metals Exchange at 1-800-800-1865.
Consider other silver bullion coins as an investment like the 1/2 oz Paul Revere Coin.

The bag contained plenty of examples of early 60's and 50's dimes, with some mercury dimes and 40's roosevelts. Good condition on over a dozen 64's and many others which makes the value even higher (if I was trying to sell them). I will be purchasing more in the near future. The entire process has been very simple and pleasant.

Order $20 face this time it came in all dimes which I was hoping for some quarters like when I order $10 base but otherwise product it's really nice and I recommend it to anybody
By Dan A. on August 9th, 2018
I ordered $20 face in quarters this time and can't be happier. All but two were Washington with the other two older. Unless I'm missing some thing I wish you could specify dime or quarters when ordering. I managed to get only quarters on this order since a rep from Money Metals called to clarify my order.

I know these quarters are only for silver, but in a $50 bag, found 2 nice recent proofs and 3 barbers. Initially thought I got 1 shy on a bicentennial commemorative, but looked closer and found the S mint Mark. Count was perfect. Got exactly and more than expected.
