Now that will kill confidence in the Gold and Silver scam.

No it's more a problem for coin collectors, it's easy to tell a pure gold coin and the value of such a coin means that tests will be carried out every time it changes hands. For silver coins the value if not found in the metal but instead the rarity of the coins.

I hope that original post was tongue-in-cheek.

The prices (US $ 0.9-1.5/ Piece) make it quite clear that these are memorabilia. If you visit their [url="http://haulson.en.made-in-china.com/product/nbkQIgqOXwWJ/China-Chinese-Panda-Silver-Coin.html"]Chinese Panda Silver Coin[/url] then under the [i]Disclaimer[/i] it states:

[quote]
Material: brass, zinc alloy, copper, iron etc.
Process: die-cast, stamping, hot-cast, printing, photo-etches are available.
Finishing: various electric plating colors such as gold, imitated gold, silver, antique silver, copper, chrome, nickel and finishing are availible etc.

Only the excessively greedy and idiotic are going to get caught out here, and they can probably return them saying that they didn't realise they were ornamental only. The only way someone can really get caught out is if someone else bought a lot of them and then sold them on as real coins, and if they are buying coins from someone they didn't trust then you really should know how to detect obvious fakes.

There is even this from their [i]About us[/i] page:

There are clearly making memorabilia and not even remotely attempting to commit fraud.

Wow, gold is even cheaper at US $0.09-0.99 / Piece! By this time next year, I'll be a millionaire! Edited by doahh

Besides, it looks absolutely nothing like the real silver panda coin http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:AGPanda.png , has text in English, and doesn't have a currency value on it.
