Silver Coins

Before you look for where to sell silver coins, you should first evaluate whether your coins have numismatic value (rare coins valued by collectors) or are classified as “junk silver” (a phrase used by investors and collectors for silver coins that have no value beyond their silver content). 

In the United States, most silver coins minted 1964 and earlier have a fair amount of silver content and as such have value based on this precious metal content.  The coins listed below are generally considered “junk silver” and Arch Enterprises works with people all across the country to pay top value for these coins based on their silver content and the current price of silver.
