What is “junk silver”?


“Junk silver” refers to silver products that are made of 35-90% silver. Many US coins pre-1965 are considered junk silver as they were made with 90% silver. These coins were used in circulation, so there is not a large collector’s value. The value of these coins mostly comes from the intrinsic value of silver within the coins.
