90% silver coins are very popular among serious silver investors. The 90% silver coinage, sometimes referred to as junk silver as the coins are the pre-1965 US dimes, quarters and halves. These bags of silver coins usually contain only a single denomination of coin and are not mixed. The US Mint stopped using 90% silver in its dimes, quarters, and half dollars in 1965, meaning 1964 was the last year any of these silver coins were made of 90% silver. The half dollar continued to contain 40% silver from 1965-69 but it was silver clad copper and the 40% silver Kennedy halves are not nearly as popular among bullion investors as the 90% silver coinage. Historically, 90% silver coins have been one of the cheapest ways to invest in silver. However, in recent years, the premium both investors and collectors have been willing to pay has increased significantly. Some of these pre-1965 silver coins have significant collector value although most individuals simply purchase them for their silver content. Hard core gold and silver bugs believe that in a catastrophic breakdown in society brought about by reckless money printing and excessive debt, that American 90% silver coins might provide much needed relief as 'real money' to buy basic food and services during that crisis period. 90% junk silver is a great way to invest in silver and especially given that these coins are no longer produced may add some additional benefit of becoming more valuable in the distant future as collectible items in addition to the silver content. When selling bags of 90% pre-1965 silver coins, investors will trigger a 1099 reporting requirement when selling $1000 FV back to the dealer. These pre-1965 silver coins are NOT IRA eligible.

‘’I had gone to a couple of other places and they weren’t the nicest people and were trying to rip me off. The people at copper state were very knowledgeable and kind. They taught me a lot along the way too. Mike and Ivy were big helps in my situation. The place is also very organized, clean and they were professional!! I recommend you go here! I will be back!’’

‘’First time visit to the shop was great! All were fun to talk with friendly to work with and outstanding to do business with. I was looking for some specific items. They went above and beyond to double check inventory not under glass. Boy, did they make my day. Not only did they find, it but they gave me the best deal in town. I will be back again! Thank you Mike! Copper State is a new spot for me now.’’

‘’Found a couple of the 2009 Formative Years” I have been looking for. Came to Copperstate Coins responding to an ad not knowing they were a coin dealer. Met with Ivy to pick up my rolls. All in the store were extremely polite not pushy helpful and I left with more than I came in for. Without a doubt greatest place to go if you’re just getting into the hobby, which I am, I will be a frequent customer. Thank you!!’’
