    WOW Great video sir!! Gold and silver have the speed of velocities in them at around 3000m/sec. That’s why they have a lower frequency ‘Ring’ than the base metals. Most of the other metals have higher velocities of sound. Other metals that have similar velocities are Platinum, Tin and to a lesser extent lead(2000m/sec). Platinum is another precious metal. Tin has a lower density. Lead has a higher density.
    But Molybdenum+Lead, coated with Silver could theoretically pass of as authentic silver

  2. Andrei Grigoriu says:

    does it work with 70% silver coins?

  3. Fockersnextdoor says:

    I found a 1959 dime in my pocket change today and the first thing that I did was to drop it on the granite bathroom counter-top and listened to that sweet sound.Feels like when you was a kid and would find a quarter laying in the street.That dime came out of a fast food regiter.

  4. MrBarelylethal says:

    that person’s wrong, unless they were 1965-1970 Kennedy’s, which are 40%

  5. SpaceHeadVideos says:

    I think the only coins that are 35% are the war nickels…

    Ron Paul 2012

  7. LordDirus007 says:

    Just picked up A Mark bullion liberty round. It feels heavy and scratch it. It’s pure.

  8. cdltpx says:

    They are making fakes from China that sound close to the silver coins but they are made of some cheaper metal. I have yet to get a sample counterfeit coin but they are out there and they are using them to rip people off . Just like we have counterfeit politicians trying to get you to vote for them and later you find they are fake. End the puppet show Ron Paul 2012.

    so if I ever stumble a pile of morgan dollars I can say ” sure this random pile of 20 morgans must be real!!!!”

    you need to weigh em…find the dimensions.. then ping test em on the tip of your finger..
    not that hard..

  10. ylesfitz8839 says:

    ya the silver had more of a higher “Ting” then the clad? is that right? its hard to tell a couple times it sounded almost the same

  11. blabblab1212 says:

    These are clad: which means they are garbage………….

  12. Tom The English Picker says:

    does’t that damage the silver coins doing it this way? good vid thanks for sharing.

  13. inkey2 says:

    no…..all american silver coins were 90% silver. The only ones that were less were half dollars from 1965 to about 1970/71…those were 40% silver

  14. KirbyHanchar says:

    before you did the sound test, i noticed that:
    The MORGANS sounded a lot heavier.

  15. litoariel says:

    THE MORGANS JUST SOUND LIKE MONEY !!!!!! LOL

  16. bigrobnz says:

    The good coins have that” old fashioned” sound to them!!!

  17. alphacodexx says:

    will this convince people overseas who do not know out pre1964 us junk silver coins you think?

  18. Thatcrazykidbrendan says:

    war nickels (1942-1945 mint marked) were 30% silver alloy, but other then that, 90% silver from 1964 and back.

  19. part3auctions says:

    The best way to find out if your coin contains silver is go to a Coin Show and ask at least 2 different dealers…….

    Do not sell your coins if you are not sure!!!
    There is alot of shady dealers on the internet.
    DO NOT respond to a newspaper ad that is hosting Hotel Buying Party
    Never Pawn a coin. They will pay you chump change, even if the coin is rare.
    NEVER, EVER under any circumstance send a coin through the mail, or let a coin leave your hand without getting cash first.
    BE SMART!

  20. part3auctions says:

    Ok. I have to point out a thing or two……….

    Eisenhowers DO NOT CONTAIN silver…..
    The only ones that do contain 40% silver where sold as commemorative proofs……. Which are very hard to find!!!!!

    The sound of the coin can depend on size, weight, or composition.

    Example:
    A silver mercury dime sounds different than a Morgan Dollar (because of weight/size)
    A 35% silver wartime nickel sounds different than a pre-1970 40% Silver JFK Dollar. (because of composition)

    a great site is coinflation on the web to see whats in your piggy bank

  22. scutter4christ says:

    That is something that I’ve never tried to do before. You may just trying googling it and I bet there will be someone who has written how to do it.

  23. GoneGuru99 says:

    hey, you seem to have some coin knowledge. I want to tone some Franklins using a cigar box and heat. Have you tried this yourself and could you give me some tips or info? Thanks!

  24. abitarif56 says:

    I have a 1804 silver dollar, i tried buy testing it by putting it on the edge of my finger and hitted softly with another coin. The sound is like a bell and the tone lasts 3 seconds, are they real silver? It says that the 1804 silver dollar is 90% silver
