Did you print the tubes in PLA, if so is it safe with silver as PVC kills silver coins.

Yes its PLA. I'm not too sure if this will also eventually leak but these are just some scrap grade florins i sit on my desk. I will look into that. 

EDIT:

Bio-Based Plastics Like PLA are Not Exempt

PLA is a kind of compostable plastic made from starch, usually corn. It’s generally touted by its manufacturers as safe simply because it doesn’t come from petroleum. So guess what. 71% of all the PLA samples tested were found to leach EA chemicals as well.

The Point: just because a plastic is made from plants doesn’t make it safe.

 

So it leaks something but not sure the effect.
