Buy $10 Face (40 coins) – 90% US Silver Washington Quarters
90% US Silver Quarters refer to United States Mint 25-cent pieces made before the Coinage Act of 1965 that brought to a halt any kind of silver alloy in the making of U.S. coins.
Nowadays, quarters are done using a clad metal composition (copper plus nickel), but these pre-1965 Silver Quarters are still considered legal tender, retaining their 25 cent face value. However, their real value comes from their precious metal content of 90% Silver (intrinsic value).
The term junk silver is, sometimes, mistakenly used to describe pre-1965 silver coins due to their wearing over time.
Nevertheless, we guarantee all our Silver Quarters are in average circulated condition and make for a great investment for those wanting to increase their silver holdings while sensibly diversifying their portfolio with these pieces of American coinage history.
