    Thank you sir. I am captivated by coins!

  2. Silver Maple Leaf says:

    The magnet would slide down the GML slightly slower than the GAE due to the GML being the purer of the 2 at .9999

  3. shaniamegshow says:

    If you had a GML 1oz and a GAE 1oz, which would coin would the magnet be more affected? Would it go down the GAE faster then the GML?

  4. Silver Maple Leaf says:

    The magnet can be obtained from the website link under the video above.

    Neodymium magnets are made from an alloy of neodymium, iron, and boron, and have replaced other types of magnet in the many applications in modern products that require strong permanent magnets such as it is used for here.

    Thanks for posting this and the info, thumbs up. Where do you get rare earth magnets? eBay I’m guessing? Is there any mixtures of alloys that can make the magnet slide slowly down like real silver? I’ve heard they are mixing heavier metals with lighter ones to get the weight and dimensions right

  6. MrEnergyCzar says:

    OK, thanks, it becomes slightly magnetic, makes sense..

  7. Silver Maple Leaf says:

    Under the influence of a strong Neodymium magnet, the structure of the silver/gold electrons become affected and the silver/gold coin becomes very slightly magnetic, which is why the magnet slowly slides down the coin.
    When the magnet is taken away, the silver/gold reverts to it’s original (non-magnetic) state.

  8. MrEnergyCzar says:

    So if it slowly slides off, its partially magnetic?

  9. Silver Maple Leaf says:

    Gold and silver are both non-magnetic, so if the magnet sticks to the coin, it proves that the material that the coin is made from is magnetic; and cannot therefore be real gold or silver.

  10. MrEnergyCzar says:

    If it stuck to the second one, why is it fake?

    The magnet slides right down the gold american 1oz coin with no resistance at all. Same with my kugarrand 1oz coin no resistance. The magnet slide slower way slower on 999. Please make a video on gold eagle 1oz coin with your magnet.
