90% Silver Crate
This product is recurring and ships on the 15th of each month.
Don't dare call this junk silver! The Constitutional Crate from Investor Crate is a historical monthly subscription crate that contains pre-1965 U.S. coins that contain 90% silver. Why is 1965 a significant and historical date? Well, this is when our law makers and Department of Treasury decided to completely ditch Section 10, Clause 1 of the U.S. Constitution which mandates,
"No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation; grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts; pass any Bill of Attainder, ex post facto Law, or Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts, or grant any Title of Nobility."
Interestingly enough, inflation increased 3.91% annually since that day for a total inflationary rate of 792% as of 2019. It's almost like our founding fathers knew money had to be backed by a real, tangible form of wealth.
How it works
Each month our purchasing team buys pallets full of 90% silver coins from the secondary market, which are then broken down and divided up among our subscriber base by price tier. Different price tiers can be selected using the drop down menu above.
Each month on the 1st, billing is conducted. Orders are prepared and shipped on the 15th of each month.

This crate regardless of price tier will not contain pre-1933 Gold U.S. Coins nor will it contain 35% Silver such as "war nickels" or 40% Silver U.S. Coins. In recent years, the U.S. Mint has done limited runs of modern 90% silver coins such as the America the Beautiful and State Quarter series. These are usually released as proofs but we have gotten BU bags for extremely reasonable prices which we are more than happy to pass onto you.
We do not stock graded NGC or PCGS pre or post 1965 coins.
