I think the "traditional" method is to electrolyse salt water or hydrochloric acid using the silver as the +ve electrode.

Thank you very much for your help.
The first link does not work for me as I'm not a member and my allowance won't stretch that far but the second one should get me out of trouble
Many thanks
John
