Each coin has a center core of pure copper and a layer of copper-nickel or silver on both sides of the coins. The only coins made for circulation after 1965 that had any silver were the 1965 to 1969 Kennedy half dollars but they are 40% "silver clad" coins.

If the coins were minted before 1965, then one dollar's worth of silver coins contained .72258 oz. of silver. (Note that this will exclude cents and nickels except nickels minted from 1942 through 1945.) Nickels minted during World War 2 each contained .05626 troy ounce of silver (.11252 oz/$). Coins minted after 1964 for circulation contain no silver, except the Kennedy half dollars from 1965 through 1969. Each of these half dollars contain .14792 troy ounce of silver (.29584 oz/$.

Kennedy half dollars from 1965 to 1969 are 40% silver with a value of $1.25
Zero. Silver was removed from dimes and quarters starting in 1965, and replaced with copper-nickel. The only coins to have any silver during those years were half dollars, and they were debased to 40%.
7-17-11>>> 1965-1969 Kennedy halves are very common coins that were struck in 40% silver. That fact is the only reason they are worth more than face value. About $5.00
The last year that 90% silver coinage was issued for general circulation was 1964. Kennedy Half dollars were struck in 40% silver from 1965-1969.
Post new question, no US one dollar coins exist.
Depends on the 50 cent coin. These made from 1971 to present are worth only face value where as those from 1965 through 1969 are 40% silver and those made in 1964 and before are made of 90% silver, and therefore worth well over face value
Germany had silver 5 DM circulation coins until 1975.
Sorry to pop your balloon, but halves dated 1965 to 1969 were "debased". The outer layers are an alloy of 80% silver and 20% copper bonded to a core with the opposite percentages, for an overall mix of 40% silver and 60% copper. As of 05/2009, the price of silver makes these coins worth about $2.50 each.
