The Wall Street Mint Silver Bar were created in 2002, specifically to commemorate the events of 9/11. These gorgeous .999 fine silver bars feature the skyline of New York City, with the twin World Trade Center Towers, as it appeared before 9/11. Produced by the Wall Street Mint, these highly collectible, proof-like silver bars are no longer being made and are difficult to obtain. The Wall Street Mint Silver Bars are available in two sizes - 10 oz. and 100 oz.
Let's look at the advantages to owning both sizes:
100-oz silver bars
- Convenient way to invest a large amount of wealth in silver bullion form
- Uniform shape makes it simple to stack and store them in a safe deposit box
- 6.86 pound weight makes them easy to handle
- Highly liquid as this particular size is an accepted trading unit
Coincidentally - 100 ounce silver bars came about in the 1970's when inflation was soaring. Silver, a well-known inflation hedge, was highly sought after by investors as it was illegal to own gold bullion before December 31, 1974.
Small refiners started producing .999 fine silver products in order to meet the surging demand. Demand was so great by the mid-1970's that large refiners like Engelhard and Johnson-Matthey began to produce the 100-oz silver bars.
10-oz silver bars
- The favorite size of most investors
- Smaller unit of value makes them easier to trade for other services and goods
- Flat, uniform shape makes for easy, neat storage
- You don't need alot of money to invest
Because the Wall Street Mint Silver Bars are only available on the secondary market, they offer an investment opportunity with a great chance for future appreciation. Whether you invest in the 100 oz size or the 10 oz variety depends on your financial status and investment objectives.
Frequently Asked Questions
1922 peace silver dollar with no mint mark what is the value and how do i tell if it is a high relief coin?
No mint mark is Philadelphia mint. It's not a high relief coin. An estimated 35,000 high relief were struck for 1922 in business strikes but most were melted. They are extremely, extremely rare.
1922 saw the highest mintage of the entire series. The P is very common and sells in MS 64 for to with the highest prices going for coins with superior luster and eye appeal. A circulated coin is worth just a slight premium to the bullion value, no more than .
What is the value of a 1922 Silver Peace Dollar?
I have a 1922 silver peace dollar and I was just wondering how much it is worth and it has an "S" mint mark. Thanks
The 1922 Peace dollars have high mintage's and are not very scarce. The 1922-D is the scarcer of the 3 mints that year. In very low grades it is worth the silver bullion value and in higher grades around -. It does get up to or more in mint state. Silver right now is around or so an ounce. That is not very high so it would be wise to hold on to it. Also as time goes by and some are melted or just lost, the value will go up for the ones left like yours.

they were my husbands grandfathers.
I am inclined to think that your 1873-CC dollar is a fake from China, first of all there are no proofs from the Carson City mint. Now there are 2 different 1873-CC dollars one is a Seated Liberty the other is a Trade Dollar. The seated Liberty one being the rarer. A dealer needs to see it and authenticate it. Depending on which one and if it is real values are 0 to 0,000 or more. The other dollars are common dates and in circulated grades are worth silver value only. Dealers are paying 11 to 12 times face. The 1/2 dollars from the war years are also common as well as the 1/2 dollars from 1948 and up. Some may have more value than others depending on grades. All coins need to be seen by a coin dealer or two. Best I can do here.
