How can I tell if my silver dollar is real?

A genuine silver coin has a unique shine and a specific appearance that can’t be copied. In other words, there’s a good chance that it is fake if your coin is so shiny. If it’s matt-like then you should also be wary.

How can you test silver at home?

There are a number of simple methods you can do at home to determine the validity of a silver object. 

One way is an ice cube test. Place an ice cube on a silver coin, then wait for a couple of seconds. You will know your metal is real if the ice cube you placed melts quickly. 

The reason for this is silver has the highest thermal conductivity. Hence, placing it in an ice will melt the ice at a faster rate.

Another way is to use a magnet. Just place the magnet in your silver and if it does not react or show any movements then you have a genuine item.

Perhaps you want to try the ping test. Try to hit two silvers against each other. If you hear high pitch and the sound last longer then your in luck. You got a real silver.
