90-Percent Silver $5 Face Value
90% Silver Coins with a $5 Total Face Value Random Coins Our Choice
There are lots of coins that are worth more than their face value that is marked on them due to their bullion value. Most United States coinage dated pre-1965 consisted of 90% silver. Recognizable series would include (but not be limited to) Barber Dimes Quarters and Half Dollars (also often referred to as Liberty Head), Washington Quarters and Roosevelt Dimes.
The United States Mint was established under the Coinage Act of 1792, also known as the Mint Act. The Mint Act made gold and silver both legal tender and authorized the production of six different silver coins. The coins weights, fineness, and denominations were also determined within this act. The U.S. Mint continued to make silver coins a standard currency until the Coinage Act of 1965, in which the dime and quarter formulas were changed to eliminate silver from the mix entirely and the amount of silver put into half dollars was reduced from ninety to forty percent. Silver was not removed entirely from the half dollar until a second law was passed in 1970.
When purchasing 90% silver in face value lots, each lot in total will add up to $5 according to their face value, so the number of coins can and will vary.
