KInda sort of.If it's a US coin dated after 1970 it contains a copper-nickel alloy.The ni will attract a very strong magnet.

Yo Awesome,

Yes, a neo will attract all the newer "play money' coins because of the nickel. And they REALLY JUMP to some of the Canadian coins that are all-nickel, like the "loonies", and "Two-nies"!

Hey AA; how was your desert search of a few months back???

No magnet will attract a SILVER coin...any coin made past 1963 is not silver but a copper alloy...with the minor exception of some 50 cent pieces made for a while longer...I will have to get my magnets out and check some post 1963 US coins...
