Awesome day to watch the boss!

That's really too bad about having to be concerned about buying fake silver & gold On the other hand, if you buy shares of Microsoft, Apple, Home Depot, or Chevron, you won't have to worry about that and the value of the shares will up up in value appreciably plus, on a quarterly basis, you'll get paid cash dividends
Comment from : Mark Molinari

Great realisation of explaining how easy it is to use these magnets and why it should be mandatory for all bullion buyers With se protection for the coin of course

The problem is if your buying on line and it’s fake then your stuck with it because they will say you switched it and it’s not the one they sent you So it looks like you have to have it in hand to test it

Does this scratch the coin?

I know a guy that had been in an accident back about 2000 He was laid up at home for months Ebay was just becoming popular My friend would buy up old Morgan dollars and Pieces of Eight I was visiting him when he won the bid on a Piece of Eight that he paid $40 bucks for He told me was trying to buy every Piece of Eight that came up for bids By the time he was healed up he had a bunch of MD and P of E I wonder if he bought any phony's back 22 years ago I sure hope not! I'm going to tell him to watch this video Well done and thank you I am United States Army Ret

I have seen this explained before but not to the point where I felt like it was a good test - But you did! Now I see what you mean by sticky surface! As someone that buys coin lots at auction - you never know what your getting! 👍

Uriel Jauregui
Is this the same concept with Gold? Or is it’s magnetic properties different than silver? Thanks

So the fake coin is sticky to magnet?? You did not explain behavior of real silver coin contact with magnetic

how will fake vs real silver eagle look after a few years? will the fake lose its brilliance?
Comment from : saint of chelsea thomas carlyle

The "magnetic" force that the Neodynium magnet does on silver is not magnetism It is actually anti gravity I think it will work on gold and copper as well They are in the same column of the periodic table of elements
Comment from : TimBrown5000

hi so they are supposed to slide and if they do not slide then they are fakes right ??
Comment from : pro teach

Daniel LeClare
Coin is from Australia not Canada it even says so on the front Close but not correct Nice steel fake

This happens with base metals too, especially copper

So if I can stick a refrigerator magnet to the coins, they are fakes? Right?
Comment from : Shasty Smax

Jbii Skeptic
Why not just weigh the coin???? I've read about a hundred comments and only one guy alluded to doing that Am I missing something? If your 1oz Silver Eagle isn't weighing in at 1oz or your Morgan Dollar isn't weighing 267gm they're a fakebrbrCopper density is miles away from silver, so are steel, tin, brass, zinc or whatever other cheap metal someone might try to substituteEither the coin will be way thicker than normal (pretty easy to spot) or weigh a whole lot less than it should Lead is way more dense than silver and the coin would have to be really thin to have correct weight, again easy to spotbrbrOr are people actually creating some kind of lead alloys with a similar density to silver? I find it difficult to believe that happens a lotbrbrPrecise digital scales are probably cheaper than rare earth magnets at this point ($7 on Ebay)brbrI'm a numismatic novice so don't scorch me too bad if I'm missing something here

Those fakes have been done by the same people who do the real ones too It's the banks who also make those fake gold bars brbrRegarding this paramagnetic property of silver, there are also copper and lead which are also paramagnetic, so lets take a look at their stats:brbrimagnetic susceptibility/i (source: enwikipediaorg/wiki/Diamagnetism)br- Copper's is -1 (Xm * 10^(-5))br- Silver's is -26 (Xm * 10^(-5))br- Lead's is -18 (Xm * 10^(-5))brbridensity/ibr- Copper's is 896 g/cm³br- Silver's is 1049 g/cm³br- Lead's is 1134 g/cm³brbrFrom this data it could be reasoned that lead is actually a better choice when counterfeiting silver coins because it has nearly similar magnetic susceptibility and density with silver I doubt that you can tell a fake from a real one by using this method if the fake one is made from lead I would love you to prove me wrong though by doing an experiment with a copper and lead bars You could try how the magnet acts when sliding on their surface and compare it to how it slides on the silver coin brbrOne more test you could do is by measuring the density of the coin You could sink them in some super narrow water bottle and look how much the water level rises from the coin This tells you their volume Then you could weigh them with some accurate diamond scale and from these stats you could calculate the density of the coin, and if it matches the density of silver, then it is a real one

The uncirculated Morgan was also a fake

Leeroy Pana
to tell if it is silver, just download a "sound frequency spectrum" APP to listen to the sound of knocking, the staying sound should be around 4200 Hz for a 267 gram silver coin

Magnet + Copper = acts same way!

Guerreros Digitales
If my coins are smaller than the magnet, would it work if I place the magnet in an angle and I make the coins slide down on it?
Comment from : Guerreros Digitales

Freyfrey Marcelo
What are the fake? The three that you moved?
Comment from : Freyfrey Marcelo

Brilliant test Just tried it on a large silver spoon The magnet does not stick to the silver but only has a slight attraction while it is moving over the silver Thank you!
Comment from : S C

geoffrey wren
This is good Even dealers often do not know this One caveat Copper too will produce a slow magnet So a silver coated copper round would not fail this test It would be thicker though

Very interesting I thought 999 silver was not magnetic whatsoever Can you explain why there is some attraction with the neo magnet? What’s going on here?
Comment from : The Ancient City Continental

Warning: some coin dealers are selling fake coin testers I don't know this, but the thought crossed my mind

The " so called" proof silver eagle is clearly fake as the obverse and reverse both point in the same direction!!

Hair remover cream 👍brI discovered silver is the only metal of the sevens that i tested who reacts really strongly in contact with the cream 😂🤣 I would prefer discover an other universe, but that is good if it can help you brPut hair remover cream on silver, more it s pure, more it reacts strongly 👍

So if it slides off slowly, its real silver?
Comment from : S Roman

Hard drive SOB magnets are "BOSS" , these fuckers will pick up a 18 wheeler full of silver if given the chance
Comment from : EivinSukoi

Jakes World
@4:06 hahaha Yep No need
Comment from : Jakes World

Now what you should do: Test a 999 round, test a 30 drachma 835, test a 720 Mexican whatever, test a 1974-77 Canadian 50 dollar, test a 40 clad Kennedy The magnet test gets flaky @ 50 and under

Dodoi Coh
Is it n35 neodymium 🧲? Or n52 would work better on this coin test?
Comment from : Dodoi Coh

Hotrod Rebel
About what size and thickness is your magnet?
Comment from : Hotrod Rebel

Handling proof coins without a glove is making me cringe
Comment from : Wolfbjorn

George Robinson
I brought a Morgan in to be certified and the guy was suspicious of it under a scope and it turned out to be a silver fake! We did a test and the silver is real and he had written some books on the subject and showed me a certified Morgan in the Plastic that was graded 69 and he scoped it and showed it at an event that is fake as well He told me a story about in the 20's and 30's the mob would melt down stolen silver and make these coins and circulate them So there are some Morgans out there in collections from that era that are fake and almost a century old Mine is an 1879 cc in about a 62 grade and I carry it in my pocket and show people all the time

I ended up with 10 fake 1921 peace dollars, I had to go through the ice test, passed, the magnet test passed, measurement, passed, the ring test was iffy, and the fail was weight, should have been 265 give or take, they were 235 and 228 grams So since I was fairly sure due to weight being so far off the average I scratched the hell out of one on the eagle side, and 6 hard scrapes later, copper I am only out 4 dollars a piece, but unless you are making some cheap jewelry these are not worth a damn But if I had not been persistent I would have fallen for it, and the sellers first auction I bid on did not indicate these were reproductions or copies, since I emailed them they have posted them as "handmade" I would not have even wasted my effort to fart at these if they had been marked as such Old saying too good to be true rang true here too
Comment from : Lee H

Hey, how's that magnet type spelled? It's it neodenium?????

I don't get it The last was too magnetic therefore fake, but then he says "I'm sure they make a non-magnetic one"? What does that mean? Why would they do that? The magnet test would exposed the fake coin either way

Comment from : Timothy Loyd

A good and reliable test:  br1 Equipment needed - an iPhone, etc with a musical frequency tuner app (ie Cleartune, etc); and, THICK ceramic or marble, etc tile about 12 X 12"  br2 Simply drop the coin onto the Tile and observe the 'note' (frequency) that the dropped coin makes when it bounces onto the tile, 'read' the the note's bfrequency/b on the iPhone br3 Standardize/calibrate: obtain a certified US mint 'Walking Liberty' 999 1 oz coin Drop and note the FREQUENCY on the 'meter' of the app Use that frequency as your 'standard' for 999 purity, etc  br3a Do the same sequence with pre-1963 9 purity 'junk silver', etc (different frequency response for each 'size' coin dime, quarter, half dollar, etc )brbrIf you're good at 'perfect pitch' (many musicians are) simply remember the calibration 'note'
