    Dummies Guide to Easy Silver Bullion Refining at Home

    I hope this is a good enough place for this and that it is allowed.

    This article is from another site and is exactly as it says, very simple and neat way to refine scrap silver to 99.9%.
    (In the US, anyway, it is illegal to melt coins for precious metal content. The article came from Australia.)

    It's not illegal to melt US coins, except for the nickel and cent. Silver and gold coins are fair game.

    Markmopar is correct. Only nickels and pennies are specifically illegal to melt.
    Technically, it seems that the others could fall under the "defacing" rules for all money, but that seems not to be the case at present.

    be careful if you do this, the red fumes will send you to the hospital, build a fume hood and be safe.

    The guy in the article has done things pretty well and he gave it a good shot. I don't care much for the potato thing, though. You can buy a jeweler's melting dish for about $4.

    I see 3 things or statements that I would question:
    ---A propane torch without oxygen isn't hot enough to melt gold, at least in a open melt.
    ---He never gave the weight of the final silver bead. I would bet it weighs less than 3 grams.
    ---You will never get 99.9% purity using this method and will be lucky to get 99.0%. This method is an excellent one that is commonly used to upgrade silver so it can more easily be purified to at least 99.9% (the accepted definition of pure or Fine silver) in an electrolytic silver cell.

    If you are really interested in the refining, etc., etc., of Precious Metals, the most definitive, informative, and complete site, by far, on the internet is:

    I was watching a show on coins a few years ago on history channel or some other channel..anyways the point being they showed the magicians coin or something like it an the head of the us mint was on there an the guy asked if it was legal to do that to a us coin an the guys answer was Yes any coin that is in you pocket is your to do as you wish Us Mint doesn't own your money.. or something to that effect
