Former circulation US silver coins are a great way to invest in silver without breaking the bank. Known as junk silver, these 90% silver coins are previous circulation pieces that, though worn, still maintain impressive precious metal value for the silver content of each coin.

The Barber Coinage, including the Barber Dime, is so-named because US Mint Chief Engraver Charles E. Barber created the images used on the dime, quarter, and half dollar in 1891 for the US Mint to put into production on those circulating coins. All three denominations shared the same right-profile bust of Liberty, with the quarter and half dollar boasting a version of the heraldic eagle while the dime had its own unique reverse.
All of the 90% Silver Barber Dimes in this product listing are available to you for purchase with a bag containing a total of 10 US dimes. The date marks on these dimes cover only the Barber Coinage range and consist of the years from 1892 to 1916. We cannot guarantee the date marks you will receive in your bag. You may receive a bag with Barber Dimes that all have the same date or you could receive a number of different dates in the bag.
On the obverse side of 90% Silver Barber Dimes is the right-profile portrait of Lady Liberty created in Charles E. Barber. This bust features on the dime, quarter, and half dollar in the Barber Coinage and is a more masculine depiction of Liberty than other releases by the US Mint. It is in the mold of a Greco-Roman portrait.
The reverse face of the 90% Silver Barber Dimes has a simple design element. Here, you will find the denomination inscribed in the center of the coin with a wreath surrounding it. This side of the coin can feature a mint mark depending on the mint it was produced at. If you notice a mint mark, it will be either “D,” “O,” or “S.” These represent the Denver Mint, New Orleans Mint, and San Francisco Mint. Barber Dimes were also struck at the Philadelphia Mint, but do not feature a mint mark. The mint mark will be below the wreath if it is present.
The coins in this listing are in average circulated condition. This means that you can expect to see flaws and diminished visual appeal for the designs consistent with use in circulation.
