Be great if everyone got along
In the pic, I would say dull gold on left is real and shiny on right is fake How did I do? I personally would never ever never buy gold on eBay An investment that big should be bought from a coin shop or an online dealer like SD Bullion, Apmex or JM Bullion There are many others but those are just a few examples You want to be sure what your buying is real and with eBay your basically playing Russian roulette 50/50 chance it will be fake Always go with a reputable company or store, not eBay!

Hi, I have a 3gram miniature with no grooved edges,non dated,non-magnetic Victoria sovereign coin Is it a fake?
Comment from : kittys

Robin Bennett
I thought the fake one just looked wrong, too proofy ( looked new) and mushy design unlike a (special) proof coin should

There are now high quality fakes on the market that are made from a tungsten (wolfram) blank with a gold coating 50 or 60 microns thick Tungsten is not magnetic and is so close to the same density as 24c gold as to make it very difficult to identify a weight difference In the case of krugerands and sovereigns (both made fromm 22c gold) the weight, diameter and thickness can be matched perfectly and they will also pass an acid test Now a cheap gold "gold" fake sovereign can be bought on Alibaba for less than a pound but are fairly easy to identify These tungsten coins are significantly more expensive, north of £100 each and for the moment seem to be mostly one ounce coins

Seen a few on Fb market place, mounted in rings This of course makes things difficult as how to weigh the coin separately 🤔
Comment from : Sestrel Bethesda

Thank you!
Comment from : LeonBeenHuman

thanks for this! I just bought my first off eBay, I knew about magnets and I have scales, their photo has it on some scales and it's the correct weight, but I would check anyway, because it could have been a different coin haha They had a good chunk of good reviews and 100 positive feedback, so I'm not too worried

Yoyo Yo
U can get under c sovereigns 18 c I just recently tested one of my sovereigns at a jewellers and tested 18 c , 788 weighted Sovereigns should be 798 but it was dated 1909 with what looked like a lot of wear so the 1 under seemed fair for the date and condition being very worn , but it was 18 c
Comment from : Yoyo Yo

Will the 9k acid also work on 14k jewelry?
Comment from : K Shak

Nathan Lane
If you compare the counterfeit 1911 sovereign to a genuine 1911 proof, you should be able to see how genuinely mushy the fake is The details on a real one in that condition are sharp

Philip Fletcher
A genuine sovereign should weigh 7988 grams and the diameter should be 2205 mm The thickness should be 152 mm
Comment from : Philip Fletcher

Specific Gravity test is simple and accurate if you have decent scales , also flick them with your thumb nail and they have a specific "ring", best to do over your bed just in case

Sriman Archarya Jayesh Bhagwanji Chitroda
My father Bhagwanji Mepa Chitroda and his father Bhagwan Mepa Ji Chitroda came to the UK on a ancient mission where he found and traced a Hando a Indian pot, it was full of Sovereign coins from my ancient Empire in Britain And he gave it to his fraternal English Scottish Welsh and Irish people all where contemporary working class contemporary people Many of the coins where made into sovereign rings pendants bracelets etc They should be held on to as each coin was given to a ancient family connected to an ancient Kingdom in Britain before the 9th century This was known as operation Hando and in India it was known as Wando 🤴🏽🕉🔺➕

The colour of the fake looks like fine gold not 22 carat Also what about the sound they make if you clank them, must be very different
Comment from : Lee

mohamed itsenplitz
In stead of fooling around with acid, buy a catalog Then you would know 1911 is the only for George V proofs, and that it has a plain edge
Comment from : mohamed itsenplitz

Thanks, Good tip about using 9ct acid and it is none destructive on 22 ct sovereigns
Comment from : GR

do you think that buying Sovereigns from a company like Apmex, its probably a safe bet that they tested it?
