No, it's not a fake, but it's not a coin, either. It's an ounce of silver bullion minted by a private manufacturer. See the Related Question "What is the value of one troy ounce of .999 fine silver?" for more information.

It takes about 12.5 Mercury dimes to make a full ounce of silver. There are around 28.34 grams in an ounce and 2.25 grams of silver in a Mercury dime.

Well due to the fact we had silver dollars that were an ounce of silver, 1 dollar.

Silver is about 28.50 an ounce lately.

The Morgan dollar is 90% silver, or contains about .77 troy ounce of pure silver.

No true silver dollar (1794-1935) has a full ounce of silver. The Actual Silver Weight is .77344oz of pure silver.

A mercury dime contains 0.0723 troy ounces of silver. You would need 13.83 mercury dimes to get 1 troy ounce of Silver.

The 1986 Statue of Liberty silver dollar contains 0.77 ounce of silver. Multiply the value of an ounce of silver by .77 and you will get an approximate value of the silver dollar. (At a silver price of $24.60, the coin would be worth about $18.94)

if a silver dollar is 90% silver it would take 1 and 1/10th silver dollars to make an ounce of silver

It depends, this silver dollar, which since you say has a "D" on it, which means it is a Morgan Dollar, is not worth much over its bullion value in this condition. As the price of silver has risen (about $35 per ounce as I write this), the silver value has now exceeded its numismatic value. Keep in mind that a silver dollar is NOT one ounce of silver. The coin is 90% silver and has 0.77343 of silver in them

In a Walking Liberty silver half dollar there is .3617 of an ounce of silver, so it is less than 1 ounce of silver, but don't be discouraged because the coin itself is usually worth more than the silver melt value. Hope this helps.

The value is only for the silver in the coin as of today(11-21-09) silver is $18.51 per ounce. Also please note: The coin is a American Silver Eagle not a walking liberty silver dollar.

What is the worth of the 2005 Walking Liberty silver uncirculated?

User Avatar

That's a one ounce silver round. At present, silver is worth about $27/ounce.
