90 Percent Silver

From a big picture standpoint, let’s just say the reasons for buying 90% silver coins very. Here are a few reasons for owning and investing in 90% silver coins. (credit to JM Bullion)

1. Face Value

Some aren’t comfortable with rounds without a face value, not because they don’t know the value, but because buyers might not. Familiarity and trust is key when trying to liquidate silver bullion. However difficult, it is still easier to counterfeit a silver bar versus a coin, thus 90% silver coins could hold more weight (no pun intended) with buyers, since they hold a recognizable and accepted face value that is legal tender by law.

2. Sentimental Value

Unless a relative was a serious collector and owned graded coins in protected certified slabs and you knew this, you might come across a stash that was built up for a rainy day after he or she had already passed on. Along with capturing an era of time, you’re also reminded of that loved one by this collection.

3. More Silver Per Coin

Some choose to hold 40% silver coins. These coins tend to have a lesser premium and be less rare because they are more recent in a strike year. Although they are less rare and easier to find, it takes more than twice as many coins to bare the same amount of silver. Some choose to hold 90% for this reason.

4. Premium Arbitrage

In times of shortages, 90% coins can fetch higher premiums than silver bars. Often investors hedge by buying different types of precious metals. One can take this even further by buying different classes of silver within bullion to profit from the arbitrage, or at the very least keep a balance when the price dips come.

5. Perceived Disasters

Historically, spikes in buyback premiums for 90% coins have come in months leading up to a perceived crisis. When have premiums been up to 50% on 90% silver? The months leading up the year 2000, due to the Y2k bug scare. Silver premiums were also up in mid-2012 when there was uncertainty about the Mayan calendar “running out.” Some are pointing toward 2020 as being another pivotal year. No one can predict the future, but perceived crises and fear will continue and, as they say, perception is reality.

6. Smaller Increments

This is the worst-case scenario more on the fringe, but in a true crisis situation, survivalists like to keep 90% silver around because of their divisibility, making them easier to use if basic needs like food and supplies have to be traded on the run. The 90% silver coins are great for the sort of dystopic, post-apocalyptic, Marshall Law scenario of Hollywood story-lines we seem to have been bombarded with over the last fifteen years.

90% Junk Silver

90% junk silver coins are still official US coinage and can be used as a means of legal tender face value payment. Though it is often saved and held for the long due to the silver value contained within them.

Old US silver coins were once commonplace and formally part of our nation’s standard circulation coinage. Silver was formally removed from coins by the 1965 Coinage Act. Then, only in Kennedy half dollars was it reduced to 40% Silver Coins (struck from 1965 – 1970). Unless they were made for non-circulation as commemorative coins and/or coin sets 

These former US silver coins are sometimes referred to as Constitutional Silver Coins, Junk Silver Coins, pre-1964 silver coins, pre-1965 silver coins or 90% Silver Coins.

In the modern silver bullion coin industry, older circulated silver coins are often sold as bags of junk silver, which is the measure of the total ‘legal tender’ face value that each bag contains.

When people invest in 90% silver and save it, it’s called stacking junk silver, it can add up pretty quick when you buy a little here and a little there, which can be a relatively inexpensive investment strategy.
