US Gold Bureau Offers Pre-65 or “Junk” Silver for Economic Unrest

Junk silver coins served as legal tender but today are bought not only as an investment but for survival in economically uncertain times. Coins larger than a nickel that were minted in the United States for circulation before 1965 were composed of 90% pure silver. The high precious metals value of the coins compared to their face value caused these coins to leave circulation. Junk silver coins are not considered bullion but their value is based on their precious metals content. Junk silver is different from scrap silver in that the value of junk silver is based solely on the metal content.

Reasons to Buy Junk Silver Coins The short answer as to why you should buy junk silver in addition to investment reasons is in case the U.S. dollar collapses. The longer answer is that junk silver, like other precious metals investments can be a hedge against inflation. Junk silver can also be used to barter. Gold and silver coins are difficult to trade for every day necessities like bread, milk, eggs, and gas in case of an emergency. The smaller quantity of junk silver make it easier to barter. Junk silver also sells for lower premiums than silver coins like the Silver American Eagle.

Different Ways to Purchase Junk Silver Junk silver coins are available in 20 and 50 coin rolls, or in bags containing a particular face value, like $100, $250, or $1000.
