Coin silver, also know as ingot silver, is a term used to refer to the alloy that resulted when pre-1965 US silver coins were melted down to reuse in jewelry making. Early Native American craftsman made jewelry directly from the coins, heating the coins in a fire pit or forge and hammering them into shape.
