Copper, silver and gold are often called the "coinage metals" because they are used to make most of the world's coins. One reason for this isthat none of the coinage metals is very reactive with other elements, and therefore they arevery resistant to corrosion.

The alloys used to make coins are usually Copper, Zinc and Nickel.
There are several reasons:
The alloy must be very hard to withstand the use and circulation of the coin to not wear out soon.
Then, the alloy must have a value less than the value of the currency to avoid that are founded and sold as mere metals.
The color that you want to apply to each coin means that there is a preponderance of some metal.
It’s a long time since the Silver (Ag) has stopped to be a metal to mint coins.
