A) You are able to tell the difference between an Uncirculated Cupro Nickel Coin and a Silver coin by carrying out the following test. If you lay a sheet of tissue over a Silver and a Cupro Nickel coin, the Silver coin will shine through as white whilst the Uncirculated Cupro Nickel coin appears duller in comparison.

Q) What is Cupro Nickel Diamond Finish?

A) Diamond Finish refers to the fact that the blanks have been polished before striking which means that they are not proof quality. Cupro Nickel Diamond Finish coins are struck once in a polished blank.
