For hundreds of years, 90% U.S. silver coins formed the foundation of our coinage. In 1965, this changed. The price of silver increased dramatically, and the U.S. Mint began to limit the amount of silver used in our coins, combining with copper and other materials in order to control costs.
These events led to a significant increase in collectors who focused on coins that contained between 35% and 90% silver, making these coins more desirable and limiting availability.
Often called scrap silver, these coins are an economical and simple way to add beauty and value to your collection.
At Bullion & Collectibles Exchange, we’re pleased to offer a wide variety of these silver coins at price points that are appealing for virtually every collector.
