    A prime choice for silver bullion coins with extra collector value! The Third Reich produced millions of 90% silver coins. Each Nazi 5 Reichsmark coin weighed 13.88 g and contained exactly 12.5 g of fine silver. Almost half an ounze of silver in each coin. These coins are still readily available today! And besides their inherant value as silver bullion, they are also genuine Third Reich collectables thus adding to their value!

    Excellent vid! This one’s going into my Silver Secrets playlist! =^[.]^=

    Here’s that silver cleaning vid:


    Right before your very eyes, you’ll see the tarnish vanish. It’s a process of transferring sulfur ions (which form tarnish on silver) to the alumin(i)um. Pretty simple process, and you can do it in your kitchen. =^[.]^=

    British coins are completely different now. We stopped using shillings in 1971, although non-silver shillings and 2-shilling coins circulated alongside the coins that replaced them until the 1990s when those coins were reduced in size.

    Ya don’t see those kind of coins in the states too much. I’ll say this though, the British have certainly made some beautiful coins in the past. Good vid!

    I liked the ‘money shot’ at the end.


    I noticed some time ago that the silver content in pre-1947 coins is proportional to the face value. 1, 2 and 2.5 with the shilling, florin (2 shillings) and half crown (2 and a half shillings).

    great video – lol at the end.

  14. RainstormGB says:

    yep the foil baking soda works well
    look on yt for a video 🙂

  15. trotnixonissick says:

    Don’t clean them….but if you really want to, stick the coins on a piece of aluminum foil, then both the foil and the coins in boiling water and then add baking soda and salt…that chemically removes tarnish without losing any silver content. You can easily look up the process on google for more details.

  20. odin422 says:

  21. snarevandamm says:

    Rainstorm – what do you recommend to clean silver coins and bars?

    just to make them extra shiny….LOL

    Other things to note for the investor:

    – shillings and florins tend to be cheapest per gram of silver as they are the least collectable. 3d is most expensive.
    – Only crown design (<1930ish) 3d are exempt from cap gains tax.
    - bargains are often found by searching for coins by monarch, rather than by date or metal content.

  23. jadcott says:

    I have many kilos of British silver coins. I have never paid more than 20% under spot price inc. postage.

    They are all weighted relative to face value (wear obviously needs to be taken into account as well, so most coins will be fraction under weight)
    Shilling = 5.7 grams
    3d = silling / 4
    6d = shilling / 2
    florin = shilling x 2
    halfcrown = shilling x 2.5
