A correction of an error ... Pre-1965 (1964 and earlier) American silver coins are 90% silver.
BTW, this thread is a great idea. I'd like to add that Christian churches which truly obey God's Word should EXCLUSIVELY conduct their local business in precious metals. God hates dishonest weights and a devalued US dollar (yes, FRN) is certainly dishonest. Churches conducting their local business in gold, silver, and copper (including tithes) would seriously contribute to creating a vibrant local economy based on real money. These coins would circulate to places like farmers' markets.
