Sell Junk Silver to the Best Buyer in Las Vegas & Henderson NV

Junk Silver is an informal term for silver coins that are in good or bad condition but contain silver. They do not have to be made in the US Mint, but they are easy to spot if you have a good eye for them and they have the right amount of gold, silver or other metals in them. These coins are often called “junk” because they only contain a small amount of silver, which would be ideal in a post-currency exchange economy. Since there are no refining or minting fees, they are the cheapest – most effective way to buy silver.

These coins differ from most silver products on the market in that silver bars and round bars, which normally contain 99.9% silver, are minted in the United States with a small production premium that bypasses investors. If you buy ten ounces of silver for $1, you can calculate that you are buying ten ounces of silver by buying one ounce of junk silver coins for the same amount of money as one dollar.


The name “junk silver” was developed and used to describe the average circulating US silver coin, meaning that rare coins were included. Silver coins minted in 1964 or earlier were minted in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and South Africa.

Such coins are popular with people who want to invest in silver, especially in small quantities, and coin sacks offer an excellent investment opportunity due to their low premium. They come in silver contents of 90% and 40%.
