This pure silver medallion is 100% silver and weighs 25.00g. Condition is uncirculated with good luster and minor contact marks.  There is no wear on the medallion except handling scratches. Detail shows well. The photos given are not of the actual coin on auction, but a stock photo.  The coin on auction is actually in better condition.  The designation of 1000 on the coin represents pure silver of a high purity obtained by electrolysis.  1000 silver is uncommon as it is more usual to see 999 fine or in the case of Canadian Maple Leaves, 9999 fine. Dimensions 39.6mm x 1.8mm.

Will you buy back my silver?
Yes we can. The price we will offer you will be relative to the current spot price of silver and will also depend on the volatility of the market (how fast the price and direction is changing).

Why can't I buy silver at the spot price?
The spot price quoted on the US Comex market and at the London Bullion Market ( is for standardized lots of 5000 troy ounces (5x 32kg bars). Once delivered from these warehouses, costs such as delivery fees, manufacturing costs, assaying, taxes, transport costs, import duties, government seigniorage, VAT etc add up to make a premium above the spot value. In addition to this silver is almost never available at spot prices except in paper form. The price paid for physical silver by auction is therefore a much closer reflection of the true market value of smaller quantities of silver. You do however sometimes get lucky on Bid-or-Buy with prices well below the spot value.

How do I know this is 1000 Fine Silver?
As a South African registered cc, we have our reputation to protect. We therefore only source our silver from reputable suppliers that we can trust. This is why we give a money back guarantee. If a buyer were to find they had received inferior quality silver or a substitute, a negative rating would severely effect our business. If you are happy with us, please take the time to leave some positive feedback to help future buyers.

How can I test silver myself?
There are a number of tests you can do depending on the form and what's at hand:

  • Pass a magnet over the silver. It should not be attracted to the magnet.

  • File a small V in your silver. It should be shiny inside too, else it could be plated.

  • Flatten a small piece with a hammer. Silver is quite soft and malleable.

  • Use an Ohm-meter. Silver is highly conductive.

  • Silver melts at a lower temperature than Cupronickel.

  • Pure silver is very shiny (unless tarnished).

  • A silver test solution can differentiate between silver, gold and copper alloys. Contact us to put this on auction.

  • Feel and intuition. If you handle silver a lot, you will intuitively learn it's density, the sound it makes when dropped, and it's heat conductivity. Walk around with a silver coin in your pocket for a month.
