Junk Silver Coins Offer Rewards

[silver coins]

When most people hear the term “junk” they automatically think that the item is worthless or of little value except perhaps to the owner.

“Junk” silver coins are one of those things that sound like they can’t be worth bothering with but really are if you know what you are doing.

First of all – they are easy to come by. You can get bags of 90% silver coins in any denomination you want. You can purchase one bag or twenty-five depending on how much money you want to spend - from a $100 worth to thousands of dollars.

What are “junk” silver coins?

Junk silver coins are those that are not valued by a collector and usually refer to any coins minted prior to 1964. You might ask WHY?

Prior to 1964 the actual silver used in coins was approximately 90% while after 1964 or from 1965 onward the amount of silver used was only 40% - a major reduction – thus making the pre-1965 silver coins more valuable.

Where can I find “junk” silver coins?

Actually – you can find them just about anywhere. You probably have them stashed in your pockets or wallets and you don’t pay too much attention to them do you?

But you can purchase bags of them just about anywhere – from online to buying them at a show or a flea market – but the trick is to not pay too much for them.

    Feedback from readers...

    "Silver Coin Investor is cutting edge and has it all...the value I receive from your website and The Lewis and Mariani Silver Letters is far, far greater than the small subscription cost. I am finding that I don't need any other source for silver research and knowledge. Thanks Jeff.

    I mean that.

Thanks for the course and keep up the good work!"
