In this video, David Morgan of silver-investor.com expresses his view on gold and silver bar and coin testing. He also touches the matter of faking gold and silver. GoldMoney has implemented ultrasound gold bar testing to ensure the integrity of the gold stored for its customers.

    Silver can be faked with Molybdenum, which is also a silver colored metal that has a very close Elemental Density as Silver. Moly is 10.22 and Silver is 10.49. Just to give you an idea, Gold is 19.32 and Tungsten 19.35. So it may be a bit easier to spot a fake silver by doing an Specific Gravity Test, but only with a very accurate scale, one that measures at minimum to the Hundredth (0.01g) of a gram. Tungsten is too close.

    An Ultrasonic Thickness Gauge should work well in detecting lead-filled silver bars. We haven’t found a sample of either type of lead-filled Engelhard silver bars for testing, but were able to test one of the newly made Chinese counterfeit Englehard silver bars (100% lead), and the UTG determined that they were lead. Search YouTube for ‘ultrasonic engelhard’ to find a video with it.

    What about an ultrasonic test? I’ve always beeing hearing those physical-attack-tests of all ways and colors, but an ultrasonic-analysis test should be a matter of a few seconds to determine the genuinity of a piece of anything.

    This is a good video. As the price of silver moves up it will be more profitable to make counterfeit bars, you gotta be careful and make sure you work with reputable dealers.

    In China its legal to counterfeit Silver Coins such as Eagles, and Silver Dollars and they did make their presence known on eBay :(
