How to check whether coin is silver?

Hi all,

I have few silver coins that might be counterfeit, is there any quick and easy way to test them?

Thanks in advance!

Hello, you need to find coin specifications and measure it. If weight matches, than fake coin must be thicker or wider. Cause silver is denser than cheaper metals.

You can always try magnet. Silver shouldn't stick to it, as long as it's a high purity.
