90% silver coins

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

I am seriously considering purchasing bags of 90% silver coins (pre 1965). Does anybody know the potential for these bags? Any thoughts? Many people have purchased gold eagles to protect their wealth. Some feel 90% silver has a greater potential because of finite supply.

Junk silver to me is just junk. Ask yourself this question....What would you rather have, a 1921 siver dollar or 4 silver quarters? A silver dollar has many times more claut than 4 quarters!!!!

You can find out just about everything that you ever wanted to know at www.certifiedmint.com regarding silver and gold.

Well, that depends Freddie

If the people interested in silver are educated about silver, there won't be any difference between 4 quarters and a silver dollar (Morgan or Peace). The only difference is rarity of the silver dollar and that is already accounted for, since you'll pay nearly twice the price for a silver dollar today, than four quarters.

Oh no, not the cloutmongers again.

If there's a metals-based barter economy, do you *really* think Fred the Mechanic will believe you when your condescend to inform him that your Fine Rare Coin is worth more than the ".999 silver round" he's already got in his pocket?

What are you going to do, wave a page from a valuation book under his nose?
