Prior to 1965, the United States Mint produced all circulation American currency with a silver content of 90%. However, starting in 1965 the US Mint adopted a copper-nickel alloy that shrunk the silver content of circulation coins below 90%. There were numerous reasons for this change.
First among those reasons was the rising cost of producing coins with such a high silver content. For many US coins, the face value of the coin was much lower than the value of the silver content within the product. The cost of producing those coins exceeded their value in the American economy.
Part of the reason for the rising spot silver price per ounce was a lack of availability, which also made it difficult to strike coins in the volume needed to support circulation currency. Lastly, coins with a high silver content (similar to gold coins) don’t hold up well over time when handled and circulated within the market.
The coins included in this product listing come from circulation in the United States, and include US dimes, US quarters, and US half dollars. This includes some famous coin designs, such as the Franklin half-dollar and the Kennedy half-dollar.
