Besides silver coins, such as shilling coins, we buy silver jewelry, silver bars, broken silver and silver cutlery. We also buy remnants from dental fillings (dental scrap). The current high price of silver makes the sale of the precious metal currently very profitable. We buy your silver in any form at prices above the daily rate, regardless of the quantity.
As a chemical element, silver belongs to the copper group. The abbreviation "Ag" is derived from the Latin word for silver "Argentum". As a precious metal, it has been used for the production of jewelry and coins since the 5th century BC. In Austria, the 15th and 16th centuries were the heyday of silver mining. Today, most silver is mined in Peru, Mexico, China and Chile (as of 2008).
Alloying with other metals increases the hardness of silver. Today, silver is most often alloyed with copper. The fineness of silver alloys ranges from 800, 835, 925 to 935. Sterling silver is silver with a fineness of 925. This alloy gets its name from the British pound. Nowadays it is used for jewelry, coins, but also cutlery.
Again and again, silver counterfeits enter the market. Supposed silver, which has the stamp "ARG 800", is the most common silver counterfeit. These items are not made of high-quality solid silver. Since their precious metal content is too low, these pieces are not suitable for sale. We will examine the pieces carefully and tell you if your pieces are genuine
