    Hope everybody's weekend going good so far. I did a little research I can't find a date on these. They do have an RM punched where the date is supposed to be on one of the coins the other one I can't see. But I think they're silver. It says 999 silver on the reverse. I believe there the silver rounds. But the ones I seen online they say 1 oz of silver. These ones say 999 I don't know let me know what you guys know thank you

    It is a .999% silver round, and not a circulated coin. The melt cost of silver right now (4-29-24) for an American Eagle, which is close at 31.1g, is $27.38, but most won't pay you top asking price, so I wouldn't expect to get that much. Take it to your local coin store or jeweler and see what they say.

    I'll be a cynic.

    It was made to look like a US bullion coin, but it's not

    It says .999 fine. 1 troy oz would be 31 grams. It's under weight at 30 grams

    .999 fine refers to what? The silver plating over the base metal?

    That's certainly possible, but I think it's more likely that the scale is off by a fraction of a gram. It only reads to the nearest gram, so it's not really useful for checking coin weights.

    If I had the round, I'd consider nicking the edge to make sure it's not just silver-plated. There are a lot of those floating around. (And they never seem to go away, no matter how many times you flush...)

    Cheech9712 Every thing is a guess

    50 bucks for an oz of silver? You just wasn’t thinking that day. Be more careful

    2 coins but yes u are correct. I was looking at the damage coins. I didn't know if there was a market for those types of coins or whatever they're called. Bullion.
