FIRST PUZZLE: Yes - take a coin from a box say the box marked silver/gold. If the coin is gold then the box is 1) the gold box (since it had been labelled incorrectly). The box marked silver must be the mix box and the box marked silver/gold will be the silver box.

SECOND PUZZLE: No. There are always two possibilities for each box.

Package 1 says gold.Since ALL are labelled incorrectly, it is either silver or bronze.

Package 2 says silver.This, too is wrong.So it has either gold or bronze.

Package 3 says gold or silver.This is wrong, saying us that it contains bronze coins.

So, ruling out bronze from package 1 and 2,

Package 1 has silver coins and package 2 has gold coins.
