    eBay listing at 99 cents OR make offer.

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/362197944101?rmvSB=true

    Yup, seems legit to me.

    The seller even tells you to "BEWARE OTHER SELLERS ARE SELLING SILVER PLATE" and then gives you "tips to keep you relatively safe"

    VERY RARE, PURE .999 SILVER-----BEWARE OTHER SELLERS ARE SELLING SILVER PLATE

    Only a few left, once gone you won't find them anywhere (die was destroyed a few years ago). get it now!

    You are purchasing 1 Troy Ounce .999 pure silver Proof Like Bitcoin commemorative, this piece applauds and recognizes Bitcoin for moving away from fiat currency.

    Silver Tips to keep you relatively safe:

    1. Silver should weight 31.1 to 31.8 grams any heavier it probably is fake, any lighter it probably is fake. The mint will almost never have it lighter then 31.1 as they don't want to cheat you out of silver, they also will most likely not make it heavier then 31.8 so as to not "give away" free silver. (you can purchase a cheap digital scale here on ebay, you just need a small one weighing grams to the 100th ie 31.18)

    2. Get a strong magnet, small and circular in size, (can be found at any electronics store or even hear on ebay) Hold your silver piece at 90 degree angle with magnet at the top, let the magnet slide down the surface, if it falls off or slides rapidly, its probably fake. If it sticks, its probably fake, it should just glide down the piece all most purposely (sort of slow and controlled, but not to slow) practice a bit you will get the hang of it.

    3. hold a piece of known silver on the tip of your finger, balancing it, take another piece and give it a little tap, you should hear a nice bell ringing tone. if it clinks it probably isn't real.

    Even if you don't purchase from me, feel free to contact me with any questions you have regarding silver, i respond quickly and am always glad to help!

    Great deal for those that venture. However the seller is selling silver at less than spot and while your credit card etc can be shielded with Paypal etc your home address will be available because of the shipping.
    No big deal to me but I am going to pass following the old if it is too good to be true maybe it isnt

    The weight will probably be more or less correct, since the seller highlighted that potential problem. The seller did not, however, comment on the coin dimensions. Be sure to measure the diameter and thickness, in addition to the weight. But good luck finding the "correct" dimensions to compare yours against.

    For a particular volume of silver, one dimension can be found from the other.
    Even if the seller provided no dimension, once the coin is in your hands you can use the diameter to calculate the desired thickness and go from there.
