  1. Rainstorm – what do you recommend to clean silver coins and bars? just to
    make them extra shiny….LOL

  2. 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!

  3. 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!

  4. I liked the ‘money shot’ at the end. lol 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). 🙂

  5. Here’s that silver cleaning vid: watch?v=G_1kotDLonM 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. =^[.]^=

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  8. @snarevandamm 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.

  9. At 3.05 you say about the Flip? Our Early One Penny and the Half Penny
    Flipd the same way, its in 1 of my vids somwhere, Also Britannia faced to
    the Left, You have a cool collection of Silver. Jay

  10. 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.
