Newbie question. 

I'd like to know If a metal alarm tells the difference between different metals like silver, gold, and aluminum?
Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance 

No, silver, gold , aluminum, lead and basically all metals that aren't iron are all non ferrous metals and will have much the same signal.

Any company that makes the first detector that can tell exactly what non ferrous metal it's detecting is will make lot of money!!

Hey Guys,

   I agree, the only detectors that will give you a different tone on ferrous/non ferrous metal is a good coin/relic detector.  These will allow you to some degree have a different tone on different metals, such as a copper penny vs. a silver coin.  All the pure gold detectors for gold nugget detector are pretty much all-metal detectors with very little to no discrimination.
