    As shown in the chart above, the listed silver sets all have varying amounts of the precious metal contained within them. This is for two main reasons.

    First, the United States Mint has released silver coins over the years in varying compositions of the white metal. Most silver coins, and thus associated silver sets, were struck from 90% silver. This was the standard composition of pre-1965 silver coinage including all dimes, quarters, half-dollars and dollars.

    It is also the composition used for more recent silver coins such as those issued as part of the 1992 through present-day silver proof sets. There was a period, however, in the late 1960's through the 1970's where the US Mint used a 40% composition in their silver coinage.

    The second reason for varying precious metal contents in the above sets is more obvious. It has to do with the fact that sets contain different numbers of coins. For example, the 1965-1967 Special Mint Sets only had one Kennedy Half Dollar struck from 40% silver. The remaining coins were struck from their standard clad composition.
