What are Junk Silver Coins?

Junk Silver CoinsNorth America utilizes a term called "junk silver coins" to describe silver coins that were utilized as legal tender in the United States prior to the 1960s and are now traded mostly in bulk for their silver value. U.S. half dollars, dollars, quarters, and dimes struck before 1965 contain a 90% pure silver content. The majority of investors prefer buying silver coins this way because they are available in a form that they trust and are familiar with.

How is the Value of Junk Silver Coins Calculated?

Since the silver content of half dollars, quarters, and dimes is proportionate to their denomination, you can calculate that for each dollar in face value there is approximately .7234 ounces of silver in each coin. Next, the majority of coins have worn out from many years of circulation. This means you should work out the silver content amount that is currently left in the coins at nearly .72 ounces of silver, in terms of face value per dollar. Proceed to use the silver's latest spot price to calculate the estimated value of the coins' silver content. You would want to multiply the following factors: .715 x the face value of the coins x spot price of silver. You can ignore the copper content of your coins (about 10%) as their value is so small.
