Prior to 1965, all U.S. dimes, quarters, halves, and dollars were composed of 90% pure silver. To this day, these coins remain legal tender in the United States. However, the high intrinsic value of these coins relative to their face value caused them to quickly leave the marketplace shortly after the introduction of their copper-nickel clad successors in 1965. Although they were never officially designated as bullion coins, they are now heavily traded for their silver content. Ninety percent silver coins are colloquially known as "junk silver," because they are frequently quite worn and carry little, if any numismatic collector value over their intrinsic melt value. These coins are usually sold in face value increments in bags containing either a mix of denominations or a single denomination. They offer several distinct advantages over other bullion products. In particular, they permit silver purchases in small and easily divisible increments― as low as $2 increments for silver dimes, depending on market value. Much like other bullion coins, 90% silver coins will always be worth at least their face value, regardless of the market price of silver. Therefore, 90% silver coins are highly appropriate as a hedge against more volatile investments. Finally, these coins are sold at very low premiums over spot silver price and are highly liquefiable— making 90% silver coins overwhelmingly the most preferred form of bullion investment offered by Olevian Numismatic Rarities.
