The ancient coin found in the bottom of a sunken ship and the modern coin that comes hot off the printing presses both have the same intrinsic value to the collector if they are both silver coins. Today, silver is rarely used in currency except for collectible commemorative coins or bullion coins. For example, there were many U.S. silver coins in the past, including quarters, half-dollars, and dimes made before 1965. The U.S. coin that contains the most precious metal is the Silver Eagle. It is a bullion coin because, although it is marked with a worth of $1, its true value lies how many ounces of silver it contains. Collectors love these silver coins, which are easily available in many different grades on eBay, because they can buy them when the price of silver is low and sell when the market price rises. There are also plenty of convenient shipping options on eBay so you can get your coins delivered in a timely manner.
