US silver coins featured 90% silver content for the vast majority of the nation’s coining history. From the first silver coins issued in 1794 through to the quarters and half dollars of the 1960s, the silver content in US coins remained steady at 90%. In 1964, the US Mint moved away from this higher silver content to save money, lowering the content in all coins to 40% silver instead. Today, 40% Silver Coins are available to you in bags of $100 (USD) totals at Silver.com.

Coin Highlights:

  • Coins ship inside of a linen bag totaling $100 (USD) in half-dollar coins!
  • Individual coins contain 40% silver!
  • Consists of .3617 Troy ounces of actual silver content.
  • The individual coins have a face value of $.50 (USD) fully backed by the US government.
  • Obverse of the coins features the portrait of John F. Kennedy.
  • Reverse of each coin bears the presidential seal.

As silver prices starting increasing in the 1960s, the US Mint realized it was getting more expensive to produce circulation coins using 90% silver. The immediate solution to this was to drop the silver content in coins, and starting in 1964 all remaining US silver coins in production were dropped to a silver content of 40%.

Although this practice continued throughout the remainder of the decade, it would not last long. In the 1970s, the US Mint began transitioning all silver coins in all denominations to new copper-nickel alloys referred to as cupro-nickel. These coins had greater resistance to wear and tear in circulation.

In this Silver.com listing, you’ll receive a linen bag containing a collection US half-dollars with 40% silver content. The production of 40% silver coins lasted from 1964 to 1969 in the half dollar, with a few collectible sets of the same design issued in 1970 as well. After 1970, only collectible US silver coins had a purity level above 40% silver.

On the obverse of most half dollars in this listing, you’ll find the portrait of President John F. Kennedy. The nation’s 35th president is captured in a left-profile design created by Gilroy Roberts in 1964 for use on the half dollar. Kennedy’s bust remains on the half dollars today, with most coins issued coming in collectible sets.

The reverse of the 40% silver coins available in this listing feature the presidential seal. Designed by Frank Gasparro in 1964, this image includes the bald eagle with the national shield on its chest. The bird clutches the arrows of war in one talon and the olive branch of peace in the other. A banner it clutches with its beak reads “E Pluribus Unum.”

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
