In this video I talk about fractional silver and show some examples of pieces currently for sale and what you'd pay. One example not shown would cost you over $90 for 1(one) ounce of silver!! Gross!

If you want fractional silver buy pre-65 dimes, quarters, and halves (and dollars).

You might even get lucky enough to start a collection or two.

I do like buying fractionals from time to time. I can get them from my LCS for not too bad of a premium, and they are a cheaper purchase in absolute terms. I will occasionally get some online if the price is right or there is a cool design I want(like the MPM Egyptian half ounce rounds which are super cool!) Again, a way to scratch the itch for not much money, but certainly sometimes the premiums are just too much. I like the 1/2 Perth lunars also, and I don't have to sink as much money into the collection as I would if I collected the 1 ounce version. I don't buy 1 gram bars/rounds though, they are too small for me.

I don't see the point in paying a premium. I too like junk silver.

I buy some fractional silver for illustrative purposes only. For example, I bought one each of the Somalia elephants. One each of the libertads, etc. I would never buy fractional silver in quantity.

I too bought the fractional MPM Egyptian coins. They are cool.

I was surprised how many fractional moderns you can buy, and how many they mint. Smaller just takes up more room.

If the price of silver ever gets to where it should be, fractional sizes will then make sense.

I don't buy them. Very,very occasionally I will be doing a trade at an LCS and have them give me a fractional piece back. I do have a bunch of fractionals set aside from a few years ago, so I see no need to get more. I agree with the comment about small denomination 90% being like a fractional.

A place here sell silver grams for $2.85 CAD. Some people just don't know how to cut their silver into smaller pieces. One ounce bars are perfect for bolt cutters. Some companies just prey on ignorance.

All depends on why they are being bought
