1970 Silver Price History

By the year 1970, silver coins almost fully demonetized with 90% silver dimes and 90% silver quarters nearly fully withdrawn from mass circulation coinage. The 1970 silver price in US dollars per troy ounce swung from annual high prices above $2.00 oz to as low as $1.56 oz.

By the beginning of the 1970s, most 90% silver coins had been saved and held by long term collectors and price speculators given that is melt value was higher than it legal tender face value back then and of course to today. 

From the years 1968 through 1971, the silver price declined mostly due to an economic recession in the United States and a simultaneous attempt by the US government to stabilize the price of silver over this same timeframe.
