Welcome to the forum.

Magnet test only works for coin containing iron. Silver coin does not have iron. However, passing the magnet test does not necessary to suggest that the coin is genuine. Most counterfeit are made with silver alloy and do not have iron.

Pictures are not high resolution and can not see the details. Please post better pictures.

Judging from the silver color, toning and character, most of them are fake and small portion of them are questionable.

The last picture at the very bottom extreme right is fake. That Shenshi province 20 cents is very rare. Most are fake due to fake patina. Welcome!
