In 1965, the United States Mint introduced a new cupro-nickel alloy for all of its previous silver denominations. However, the Kennedy Half Dollars would continue through the 1960s wi...Read More

40% Silver Coins at Provident Metals

The US Mint issued silver coins with 90% silver content from 1836 to 1964. With the price of silver rising in the 1960s, the US Mint transitioned all of these coins to a new cupro-nickel alloy. This made these coins more durable and affordable. However, not all denominations adopted the new alloy at the same time. Two types of US coins continued with 40% silver content into the 1970s. Learn more about 40% Silver Coins right here at Provident Metals.

Kennedy Half Dollar Silver Coins

The Kennedy Half Dollar design debuted in 1964 as the final 90% Silver Coin to be introduced by the US Mint. From 1965 to 1970, these coins were made up of 60% copper and 40% silver. It wasn’t until 1971 that silver was eliminated from the Kennedy Half Dollar Silver Coin.

  • Obverse: A left-profile relief image of John F. Kennedy is shown on the obverse field. This image showcases a younger Kennedy with the inscriptions “Liberty” and “In God We Trust” shown. The issuing date is also present on the obverse.
  • Reverse: A modified presidential seal design is on the reverse side. The heraldic eagle is displayed with a ring of 50 stars surrounding it. A shield is displayed on its chest as the eagle is holding a bundle of arrows in one talon and an olive branch in the other. Inscriptions read “United States of America,” “E Pluribus Unum,” and “Half Dollar.”

Eisenhower Dollar Silver Coins

The ending of the Peace Silver Dollar in 1935 was the ending of silver dollar coins. However, in 1971 the United States brought silver dollars back with the Eisenhower Dollar Coin. The US Mint opted to release these circulation coins with the standard cupro-nickel alloy, however, they did release some collectible coins from 1971 to 1978 with a silver content of 40%.

  • Obverse: A left-profile relief portrait of Dwight D. Eisenhower is on the obverse side. This portrait was designed by Frank Gasparro. Inscriptions read “Liberty,” “In God We Trust,” and an issuing date.
  • Reverse: Also designed by Frank Gasparro, the reverse field features a unique bald eagle design based on the Apollo 11 mission insignia. This design features a bald eagle landing on the moon, with Earth seen in the background. Inscriptions include “United States of America,” E Pluribus Unum,” and “One Dollar.”
