Like any other precious metal or commodity, silver prices are subject to volatile price swings. A popular way to invest in silver is often priced by the melt value of coins such as silver quarters. This is also known as “Junk Silver.”
United States Circulated Silver Coins are coins that were in standard circulation until silver was removed from coinage in 1965 and 1970. These are usually found in 40% silver half-dollars. Canadian Circulated Silver Coins were standard in circulation until Canada removed silver from all coinage in 1967 and 1968. The values of these two types of silver coins are priced strictly on their silver content and not their numismatic or collectible value.
