    • "Our coins will soon resemble the cheap metal play money you see in every other country soon. I.e. zinc and tin."

      True,- silver is no longer used in our coinage.
      Only in special mint sets and silver eagles.

    • Yup. Nickel was a strategic material back then and gov was quick to pull it. They'll do it gain soon too.


      Don't follow Cu and Ni futures but count on them to go up. Our coins will soon resemble the cheap metal play money you see in every other country soon. I.e. zinc and tin.

    • the place i buy silver is paying 27 times face for junk silver.

    • Where can one go in Metro Atlanta, GA. and get this value for silver coins. I have rolls of 53 Ben Franklin Halve dollars and rolls of 63 quarters. Would love to sell at the prices you are quoting..!!

    • Very informative - Thanks!

    • who would want to hoard this kind of stuff? it's bulky and one needs to find someone to buy it at the market price.

      would have been better to put those silver dimes, nickels, dollars into an interest baring account in the bank or silver stocks, with interest you could have bought a home, a boat, a car, enjoyed your life and had a big pension.

      An not to mention you could have exchanged your cash money immediately for goods.

      rather buy silver and gold funds or a fabulous stock like SLW, hold until it tripples and make a fortune and then buy silver an gold coins for fun as part of a collection, in your new home with security - for the collection lol:)

    • ? who does the melting and how much are they

      going to charge for that. Dj.

    • 2580% coins have appreciated over the years. However most of that has happen in the past year. Just as a thought, would it not be wise to start hoarding all nickels and pre1982 pennies and locate as many wheat pennies as you can find. I had a paper route years ago and had a customer that paid me in mercury dimes. she was elderly and always apoligized for not giving me a tip. But she always reminded me to hold onto that change, it would appreciate more then giving me a tip. Well each dime is worth 25X it's value today.

      My continuing point, copper pennies and metal values of nickels, could see similar appreciations and I don't think it's going to take 30 years to appreciate it. I buy $20 of pennies a week and find normally 20% of them pre 1982 and find 4-10 wheat pennies in them still. Remember zero risk here, hoarding these pennies and nickels, they sell them to you for what you can return them for. This could be the 3nd best no brainer investment in your lifetime, the first investing in SLW and the second own physical silver. One day, we will see no change available, better be ahead of the curve. That's MHO.

    • Nominees for New American Dollar Coinage that the US will never get smart enough to execute:

      FIVE DOLLAR SILVER PIECES:
      1916-1945 Mercury Dime $0.10 $2.5803 2580.33%
      1946-1964 Roosevelt Dime $0.10 $2.5803 2580.33%

      TEN DOLLAR SILVER PIECES:
      1916-1930 Standing Liberty Quarter $0.25 $6.4508 2580.33%
      1932-1964 Washington Quarter $0.25 $6.4508 2580.33%

      TWENTY DOLLAR SILVER PIECES:
      1916-1947 Half Dollar $0.50 $12.9016 2580.33%
      1948-1963 Franklin Half Dollar $0.50 $12.9016 2580.33%
      1964 Kennedy Half Dollar $0.50 $12.9016 2580.33%

      FIFTY DOLLAR SILVER PIECES:
      1878-1921 Morgan Dollar $1.00 $27.5889 2758.89%
      1921-1935 Peace Dollar $1.00 $27.5889 2758.89%

      This wouldn't be good for silver investors, although the rush to coin would provide an annual demand for silver not seen for fifty years. After the pop of about 50% current value, the POS would stabilize.

      Ignore Bernanke's bleats to the contrary. He's deluded, FOS, and head of a failed institution that Jefferson prophesy and FDR/Nixon action has proven to be a disaster. Compared to 1933, our dollar is worth a nickel, and 85 cents has been whizzed away since 1971, easily less than a lifetime.

      Inflation, really debasement of currency, is financial terrorism, on others who've not got a reserve currency or atomic weapons, and our own people who can't retire without watching savings evaporate.

      • You are right YDM, The NORFED had the right idea in silver backed currency,Liberty Dollar silver coins but were early in their pursuit as the Feds shut them down, too bad.

        "It would be difficult to find a better example of federal heavy-handedness than the recent six-hour federal raid on NORFED, the National Organization for the Repeal of the Federal Reserve and Internal Revenue Code. In fact, it would be virtually impossible to distinguish the NORFED raid from similar raids conducted by Soviet and Chinese communist

        After all, by confiscating all the assets of the company, including its coins, computers, records, and equipment, the feds have totally shut down the NORFED operation. But where is the court order authorizing them to shut down this privately owned business? The answer: There is no such court order. All federal agents had was a search warrant issued by a federal magistrate.

        Here’s what the feds did that enabled them to engage in their Soviet-style attack on NORFED. Unlike the system that existed in the Soviet Union and that still exists in Communist China, the U.S. government is precluded by law from simply closing down businesses it doesn’t like or that it is feels are violating the law. If the government wishes to have a business shut down, the law provides a remedy called an injunction, which is a formal order issued by a judge that requires a person or business to cease and desist from engaging in a certain operation. . ."

    • When I checked groceries back when I was in high school (in the late sixties), my boss would let me set aside silver coins and wheat pennies and exchange them like for like. Was anyone else fortunate to be able to do this?

      • I went in to BofA last July and asked if there were any of the presidential dollar coins on the counter. A kindly teller said "I have something even better for your collection." She had taken in some silver "circulated" Kennedy proof coins which some kids had deposited, apparently from their late father's coin collection. I obtained coins for about $21 face value which were worth well over $121 then. Looking up their values got me excited about buying silver again, and I have been adding to my silver coin collection since then. EBay has been fun.

      • my sister worked for a fed. reserve bank, I would buy a $1000 bag of fifty cent pieces and pull the 90% ones turn in back in and do it again......1967-1970
