    I want to start collecting, can you give me a list of what to look for for any value content, be it silver, nickel, or copper… For instance I think 25cent pieces are silver between 1920 and 1967? what about the rest? please and thank you./// Nice video

    uk has no silver coins for decades. In the seventies, we had 30% inflation and lost most of our worth. Any specials are long gone or very highly valued like our old 1 pound sells for 255 now

    I just love to drop them on my store counter. The magnetic ones make a “dead” sound, while the silver makes a nice “ping” sound. Have 1 1968 silver quarter so far and about 4 dimes. I keep searching rolled coins that are brought to my store. In the past year, 9 quarters and 20 dimes. Not to shabby.

    I was checking out some Canadian coins and I had a 1968 qtr but damn thing was magnetic. All of my .25, .10, and .05 cent coins were magnetic EXCEPT 1) 1986 .05 cent This is my newest coin of all the coins though so I figure at some point Canada got away from using 99.9 nickel and changed the recipe. SCHOOL ME.

    A note to American viewers; the magnet trick does not work on American coins because copper is also diamagnetic.
