90% silver coins are a popular way for investors to purchase large volumes of silver at lower premiums than modern bullion coins. In the United States, this often means purchasing former circulation coins. The vast majority of US silver coins produced from the 1820s to 1964 had 90% silver content with a 10% copper balance for durability. Provident Metals currently offers you a $1 FV of 90% Silver Barber Halves for purchase online.

When you purchase one of these 90% Silver Barber Halves with a total face value of $1 (USD), you receive two coins from the Barber Half Dollar Series inside of a plastic bag. The coins in the bag each have 90% silver content with a 10% copper balance. This was the standard silver coin content in the United States until 1965. Each coin is in Very Good-plus standing, indicating medium to heavy wear with some details still visible in the design.

Please remember that your purchase of 90% Silver Barber Halves through this listing includes the potential for one of two outcomes. You may receive two coins with the exact same date mark or two coins with varying date marks. We are unable to accommodate requests for specific dates, matching dates, or variable dates.


The obverse of the 90% Silver Barber Halves includes a right-profile bust of Lady Liberty. Her figure is depicted with a crown wreath on her head and 13 stars around her figure. The stars are split with seven on one side of the bust and six on the other. Inscriptions on this face of the coin include only Liberty and the date mark.


On the reverse of 90% Silver Barber Halves in this listing, you will find the depiction of the heraldic eagle of the United States. This design was first created in the 1790s by Robert Scot, the first Chief Engraver of the United States Mint. Charles E. Barber, the 6th Chief Engraver of the United States Mint, developed this design of the national symbol in 1892 for the Barber Coinage, though it was only used on the quarter and half dollar. Inscriptions on this side include United States of America, Half Dollar, and E Pluribus Unum, with the latter inscription on the banner in the birds mouth.


Barber Coinage refers to the dime, quarter, and half dollar designed by Charles E. Barber in 1892. Barbers designs were created in response to public discontent with American coin designs in the 1870s and 1880s, though Barbers designs did little to assuage this discontent. The Barber Coinage designs were replaced in 1916.
