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.

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…


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!


Professional, friendly staff. Knowledgeable and fair. An interesting experience and would definitely visit again.

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

Wonderful experience, Nick and Laura made it seamless and stress free. Thank you! They also sell super cool items!!

While vacationing in Las Vegas I did what a lot of people do I’m sure or at least that’s what I’m telling my wife ..I blew through the money I brought a little quicker than expected and I ended up having to shop my Rolex around to several dealers to save the trip. So I looked online for places, most offers over the phone were low and that’s if they would even quote me in the first place. I spoke to a guy at Nevada Coin and Jewelry who gave me a fair ball park price and a reasonable explanation as to why his number couldn’t be solid. Went down expecting to get the lower number and in fact Robert their Rolex expert said my Rolex was a better model then I had described. He paid me a higher number than he quoted. Thanks for saving my vacation guys.

After visiting a couple of the “traveling gold & silver merchants” who came to Mesquite, I made a call to Nevada Coin & Jewelry in Las Vegas… David was very helpful and professional. Their prices were the best I had seen… I left very satisfied with my trip and the deals we made. I will definitely go there again.

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!


I am a brazilian and had the chance to deal with Nevada Coin. I was there to sell some gold coins and they paid me the best price I could fetch in Las Vegas. They are professional, courteous and trustworthy. Before visiting their premises I got a tentative appraisal by phone which I found reasonable. In the shop the attendant offered to approach the manager to get me a (gasp) BETTER price. Do yourself a favor and don’t bother talking to their rude and unprofessional competitors. They will treat you like a moron and quote prices accordingly. For Nevada Coin, five Stars all the way.


What friendly staff. They help you sell your items even if they don’t have a use for it by calling other shops around the area to see if they could use it… They want you to have the best out come from selling your items. I was so happy I decided to go to them!


Really cool cats over at Nevada Coin and Jewelry. You would’ve thought that I was “Madonna” the way those guys treated me. I was so mesmerized by all of the antiques, they have in there, I believe I was there for two hours, just looking, unbelieveable! When I went in I was so hot, they offered me a cold bottle of water, how cool is that? It felt like home to me. I wanted to get a price for some old jewelry that was passed down by grandma, I was well satisfied. When I left the shop, I was singing “Money, Money, Money.
