United States 90% silver coins. You will receive a mixed bag of 90% silver coins which will consist of Kennedy, Benjamin, and/or Walking Liberty Halves, Washington and/or Barber Quarters, and Roosevelt and/or Mercury Dimes minted in 1964 and earlier.
The value of most circulated coins minted in the 1920's through 1964 is primarily from their silver content.The high intrinsic value of these coins relative to their face value caused them to quickly leave the marketplace when the cupro-nickel coins arrived. Though not officially designated as bullion coins, these 90% silver coins are, in fact, valued and traded for their bullion content. These coins offer the investor an affordable, convenient, and easily divisible means of owning silver with a built-in guarantee: no matter what eventually happens to the price of silver, 90% silver coins will always be worth at least their face value. For this reason alone, 90% silver coins are highly appropriate as a hedge against more volatile investments.
