As a child I began coin collecting, and today, as an adult, I still treasure my Mercury dimes, Wheatback cents (pennies), Buffalo nickels, Standing Liberty quarters and my many other coins and bills from around the world.
U.S. coins minted before 1965 (except nickels and pennies) contained 90% silver and about 10% copper. Back in the old days, our money represented something we could melt down and would actually be a valuable metal. From 1965 to 1971, the United States cut back on silver use to a 40% formula for coins, and after 1971 the precious metal content was gone.

Once we look outside of the consumption of silver then we must look at the metal in another light. Silver is a store of wealth for many people. The great thing about silver is that it is a natural earth metal so humans cannot simply create it in a lab. With that in mind we look know that miners make up the supply side and consumers will make up the buyers side. If production increases and consumers want less silver, then prices will fall until consumer feel silver is at a good value. Conversely if production falls and consumers demand remain the same price of silver will increase.

In other words now that you know the old coin value, depending if you are a coin collector or an investor, you can decide whether you want to sell it or keep it for your collection.
