90% Junk Silver Bullion Coins

Much of the coinage the United States produced in the 20th century would qualify as 90% junk silver bullion coins. 90% junk silver bullion coins are coins of the ten cent, twenty-five cent and fifty cent denominations that were minted as legal tender coins, good for purchasing goods and services within the United States and at market places abroad which accept United States legal tender, and have been discontinued as a form of minted coinage since 1964. 90% junk silver bullion coins are exactly what they appear to be. They consist of 90% silver bullion and the other 10% percent is copper to add strength to the otherwise malleable precious metal of silver. Often times 90% junk silver bullion coins can still be found in circulation and they are still legal tender, meaning that the 90% junk silver bullion coins can still be used to purchase goods and services at the face value of the coins still to this day. Make no mistake though, just because these coins are routinely called 90% junk silver bullion coins, doesn’t mean they are junk at all. The price of silver has risen over the last several decades since these coins were discontinued, making the value of the 90% junk silver bullion coins generally much larger than their face value.

A popular trend of coin collectors, from this generation to generations past, has been to hunt for 90% junk silver bullion coins in pocket change so that those coins could be extracted and then added to larger collections of 90% junk silver bullion coins and other, more rare silver coins minted by the United States. Much of these collections, considered investment collections, have proven to become quite valuable over the years, making the allure of finding these coins in every day change irresistible to the newcomers of the coin collecting world, as well as the seasoned collectors of 90% junk silver bullion coins alike.

The staff are quick at work but not too quick to make you feel pressured into buying items or selling your items. They teach you about the items and tell you if they have use for your items or not. If they don’t have use for your items they call other places to see if they have a use for the items. Great staff!


Grateful for the Nevada Coin and Jewelry shop, I just adore it. I took some collectable figurines in and they bought them. I came out smelling like a rose. You should’ve been there to see the big smile on my face. I ran all the way home to look for some more. Can’t wait to get back! I can sure use the money!


We were really pleased with the help that AJ gave us concering our gold coins and watches. I don’t think we could have received a better deal anywhere. All of the personnel at Nevada Coin & Jewelry were very professional. We will recommend them to our friends.

Staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and responsive. Building had great security to helped me feel safe in handling my items.

This past Saturday I had the opportunity to meet the owner and team at Nevada Coin and Jewelry. I didn’t know what to expect but they made me feel both comfortable and safe. I went through my collection of jewelry, both broken pieces and things I thought were of no value at all. They took the time to explain what each carat weight was worth and they helped me sort through my items. I was amazed at what they gave me for things I would never wear or use. I would recommend you stop in and speak to them, you might be as pleasantly surprised as I was.

A great selection of coins and other numismatic related material. Very professional.

I recently got divorced so I wanted to get rid of some of the jewelry my ex-husband got me. I found Nevada Coin and jewelry searching the web. When I called the guy that answered the phone was friendly and willing to quote me a price per gram. I went to their store on Flamingo, Avery whom I spoke to on the phone tested my items using some kind of x-ray machine. I could see that some of my jewelry was not the karat I thought (some lower some higher). He paid what he quoted on the phone no bait and switch. It took less than 15 minutes got my cash and got rid of some bad memories. I would recommend this company if you are looking to sell jewelry.

A.J. and Robert are so friendly and make it so you have the best deal with the items you bring them. They have so much knowledge about all the items they have in their shop and they like to teach others about what they know…


This dealer was beyond excellent in all respects! No low-ball games, no fooling around. These people are honest, and the transaction was handled smoothly with complete transparency. I will definitely recommend Nevada Coin & Jewelry to everybody I know!

I brought them some gold pendants, rings and a few other pieces. I knew they weren’t worth that much but I needed the cash. The guys (and there are a lot of them) were really nice and not the least bit condescending. They know when you come in to sell there is a reason but they don’t make you feel bad or inadequate. The store is filled with interesting objects for sale and for show. A very nice and very fair place to buy and sell. I highly recommend them.
