How to Own Silver in Today's Market

Circulated, pre-1965, U.S., 90% silver dimes, quarters and half-dollars are referred to as “junk silver” because they cannot be considered numismatic or collectible. A bag of these coins is easily and instantly divisible. Try doing that with a one-ounce gold coin or 100-ounce bar of silver. It is bought and sold for the silver value… not the face value of the coinage. This is also the reason we think junk silver is a great way to buy silver. 

Junk silver coins are a finite commodity. They are no longer being made, and many of the bags have been melted down over the years. 

Some people would question whether the old U.S. silver coin would not be recognized. If that were true, you would find them in your pocket change, but you don’t... everyone realizes they have a value in excess of their legal tender value due to the silver content.

They don’t need to be assayed to determine their precious metals’ content; they don’t need to be appraised by an expert to tell you what grade they are. Virtually anywhere you go, you can find a buyer who knows that a $100 face-value bag of these coins contains 71.5 ounces of pure silver and will pay you accordingly.

Here are some of the reasons junk silver boasts incredible value:

•    Junk Silver is easily recognizable
•    Junk Silver is readily divisible
•    Junk Silver has never been confiscated
•    Junk Silver is convenient to store and hold at home

It’s a no brainer that if you want to hold silver in your portfolio, junk silver is one of the best ways to own it in a physical form.

The ONLY way to get more Junk Silver onto market is when people who own it sell it. When silver prices trade in range (like they did through most of 2022), no new metal hits the market. In these situations, when demand is high, premiums jump higher as well.
