Alert! Caution! Silver Fakes

Recently, an Australian dealer produced a short video showing some beautiful silver bars. The only problem – they’re fakes!

These Chinese fakes are moving around the world and being sold as real silver.

As he shows in the video, the copied designs on the front and the back are flawless. The weight of each silver bar is within the range of the real silver bar.

The fake silver bars also pass the magnet test with both a regular magnet and a more powerful version.

Using an abrasive file on the edge of the silver bar, the dealer shows that under the thin silver veneer, the fake silver bar has the dull gold color of its main metals – copper and zinc.

Take a look at his video.

You’ll be glad you did.
