90% silver dimes are a commonly traded and widely recognized investment product. Since their value is based primarily on silver content rather than collectible value, junk silver coins are one of the lowest-premium US Mint products available.The United States Mint produced 90% silver coinage from the 1790s to the 1960s. For most of American history, these coins were commonly encountered in everyday commerce. When silver prices rose due to inflation in the 1960s, the melt value of these coins began to exceed their face value, and wise collectors hoarded them. In 1965, faced with a dearth of circulating coinage, the Mint eliminated silver from most American coins. Today, most coins are made from a copper-nickel alloy and contain no silver.
However, circulated 90% silver coins are still traded as an investment product around the world. These coins are sometimes referred to as "junk silver" because they are in circulated condition, but make no mistake: they are a wise investment, indeed. Dimes offer several key advantages. They are a great way of owning silver in small, easily divisible quantities.
Should silver one day be used again in everyday commerce or for barter, these coins will likely be among the most common and widely-accepted. Additionally, they are a unique piece of American history. Roosevelt dimes may look familiar, as the same design has been produced continuously since 1946. However, all of these 90% silver dimes are over a half century old; silver was eliminated from almost all US coins in 1965.The design of the Roosevelt dime was made by the US Mints Chief Engraver, John S. The design honored President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who had died the previous year. It remains one of the most widely-recognized coin designs in American history.
