You can also change the silver spot price to research or speculate, adjust the bid/ask percentage in the event you are curious about buying or selling your coins and also see how your silver coins have performed over time with the included chart. It’s simple! It’s fast! And it’s accurate! (Also see this site’s multiple US coin Melt Calculator.)

Silver Information and Resources

(Source of data: U.S. Geological Survey)

The attractive nature of silver is self evident. It’s been used for thousands of years for many, many things. Interestingly, silver has some traits that standout above all other metals. Did you know silver has?

  • The whitest color
  • The highest optical reflectivity
  • The highest thermal conductivity
  • The highest electrical conductivity

Generally speaking, the majority of today's mining operations that produce silver are after much more. Silver occurs with other base metals, like gold, copper, zinc and lead. It's these metals that are typically the thrust of many mines. Silver is just another benefit or byproduct of them.

Obviously, as price adjustments happen with silver the focus or priority of mining it can shift. However, that shifting isn't as much as one would think. Because silver has properties that make it extremely useful in electronics and photography, a significant portion of its demand is driven by needs rather than price.

In recent history, here's a chart showing some of the major events that have resulted in silver price changes:

1985

U.S. Mint authorized to begin minting a silver bullion coin

1979-80

Attempt to corner the silver market

1968

Redemption of silver certificates for silver could only be made until June 24; thereafter, silver certificates would be exchanged for Federal Reserve Notes

1967

Announcement by U.S. Government that all silver coins would be withdrawn from circulation

1965

Silver eliminated from all U.S. coins except the half dollar, which has its silver content reduced from 90% to 40%

1963

Silver Purchase Act and various other legislation repealed; U.S. Treasury authorized to print Federal Reserve Notes, which were not redeemable for silver, for circulating currency

1950-68

Huge U.S. Government silver holdings largely depleted
