# can someone please explain this to me!!! 10 points best answer?

this coin -> http://www.treasurerealm.com/coinpapers/countrycoins/N/Netherlands_Antilles.html 4th one down

i’ve looked on other websites too and they all say the same thing, it says its silver

but the thing is from what i’ve been told silver is non-magnetic

but when i put my rare earth magnet near it, it pulls strongly on it. Don’t say its counterfeit since i’m very positive it’s real. But over my research of doing my project (this is for my physics project on magnetism with magnetic coins) i’ve learned that if its mixed with something else it could be…for example 85% steel & 15% zinc coin would most likely be magnetic…

i need to write in my data table what this coin’s materials consist of …if u have any ideas what to write tell me =) or should i just write "silver"? but that conflicts with my experiment because silver is not supposed to be magnetic o.O??
