90% Silver coins or Junk Silver or Pre 1964 Silver
Colonial Americans used silver coins as currency well before there was even a United States Mint. After the mint started operating in 1794, hundreds of millions of silver coins were issued in the 170 years they were struck until the price of silver rose above the face value of the coins in the 1960s. Today common silver coins made until 1964 are bought and sold at a multiple of their face value based on the daily price of silver. We are very competitive and buy all US 90% silver coins.
