This lot is comprised of 40% silver United States coins with a $1 face value. The coins were formerly circulating silver coinage, however, the silver melt value of each coin exceeds its face value, so today the coins are primarily vehicles for silver bullion investment. We obtain each group of 40% silver coins straight from the distributor, ensuring full authenticity and quality.

Details of $1 Face Value Bag of 40% Silver US Coinage

Each of these lots contains 40% silver coins possessing a face value of exactly $1, amounting to roughly .296 troy ounces of silver in each coin. The coins themselves are selected at random from our large inventory, which, unfortunately, prevents CBMint from honoring any requests for specific coins. John F. Kennedy half-dollars were the only US coins with an overall silver content of 40%. Indeed, these JFK half-dollars are the last US silver coins intended for circulation.

Investing in Silver Coins - $1 Face Value Bags

Also referred to as junk silver, 40% silver coins are used as an inexpensive method to invest in silver. Unlike silver coins, which usually have some numismatic, cost-adding properties, junk silver coins trade very close to the current silver spot price, allowing silver investors to obtain large amounts of 40% silver coins very inexpensively. Though technically still legal tender, these 40% silver coins often show large amounts of wear, meaning they have little collectibility and little numismatic value. However, because of this, they are a cheap silver bullion option for investors who are looking to maximize the troy ounces of silver they can obtain.
