Am I even looking at silver?!

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

Me and my lack of knowledge is back with more auction silver questions!

Are they silver? How would you know without consulting such a information highway what is the silverforum and the beautiful members that make it what it is? and if they are silver...what would you pay?


Many thanks in advance

Good for you mate. I wish I had the foresight to start stacking at 23! I read on this forum about guys picking up sovereigns for 50 quid and silver for a fiver an ounce and I kick myself. In 20-30 years you will have an eye watering amount of precious metal that will serve you and your family well. 

To answer your question - if the 3 coins on the bottom were silver you could expect to pay around the £15-£18 pound mark each. They aren't worth much more than the silver in them, as mentioned above they were knocked out in colossal numbers.

The Silver Jubilee crown on the right was minted as a silver proof which obviously has value, the cupro-nickel are junk.

The 1981 Diana Charles crown - again also minted as a silver proof and cupro-nickel. i expect your coins are cupro-nickel. 

The 1935 George v & Mary 'silver jubilee' medal - i expect this is a Middlesex one. i have seen the style of medal front you show which is Sterling - in this case it will be hallmarked.

Always cast your vote - Spoil your ballot slip. Put 'Spoilt Ballot - I do not consent.' These votes are counted. If you do not do this you are consenting to the tyranny. None of them are fit for purpose. 
A tyranny relies on propaganda and force. Once the propaganda fails all that's left is force.

COVID-19 is a cover story for the collapsing economy. Green Energy isn't Green and it isn't Renewable.

The tin may have some value too. I know some folk collect this type of thing too. I used to play with my grand parents stuffed bears when i was little, turned out they were worth thousands of pounds when they died in the early '70s.
