I have a 1918 representation of the people act 50p coin, it is very shiny and was wondering how I can tell if its a silver proof?

Hello and

A silver proof is unlikely to have got into circulation.

A silver coin will look distinctively whiter than a cupro-nickel coin, and should have frosted designs on the obverse and reverse.

You can also try the tissue test!
