U.S. Circulated Silver Coins

Silver coin values below are based on live silver prices at the CME. These coins were in standard circulation until silver was removed from all coinage in 1965 and 1970 (40% silver half-dollars). The values below only reflect the silver value, not rarity or numismatic value. This table should only be used as a guide for buying and selling silver coins. These coins are sometimes called "junk silver", but I really dislike that term. All values shown in USD.

USD Index Price Chart

The US Dollar Index is an indicator of the value of the US dollar relative to a basket of foreign currencies. The current basket consists of the Euro (57.6%), Japanese Yen (13.6%), Pound Sterling (11.9%), Canadian Dollar (9.1%), Swedish Krona (4.2%), and Swiss Franc (3.6%).


[Kitco may be down]


The record high is 164.72 which occurred in February 1985. The record low of 71.33 was achieved in April 2008. This is a good indicator to understand the weakness of the U.S. dollar compared to other currencies.
