Old currency of the United States - small silver coins and how to treat them

The debate   the article on pension reform   appeared an opinion whether it would make sense to buy old coins of the United States, which have a high metal content. I looked at this topic in more detail.

Old silver coins issued before 1965 do not suffer from inflation, quite the contrary. Their value is now on the order of twenty times their face value. Let's coin of 10 cents, 25 cents and 50 cents. The contents of these silver coins were as follows:

  • Coin value of 50 cents contained 0.356 ounces of silver
  • Coin value of 25 cents contained 0.178 ounces of silver
  • Coin value of 10 cents contained 0.0712 ounces of silver

The higher the denomination of the coin, it was adequately higher silver content. If I work with a price of silver at $ 33 per ounce, comes me the following value of the coins:

  • Coin value of 50 cents to the dollar value of 11.75
  • Coin value of 25 cents is worth 5.87 dollars
  • Coin value of 10 cents is worth $ 2.35

What is more, each coin traded with a premium of several dollars for one ounce of silver.

If we compare these values ??with the nominal value of coins, we come to the beginning zmiňovanému twenty times. If someone wanted to invest in these coins must thus allowing a high premium. And in the case of the Czech Republic would not completely avoid the VAT because, simply put, the price of the metal content of coins measured far short of its nominal value.

Conventional investment coins  bring greater value to investors.
