3 Ways to test if Gold is real
Know if your Gold is Real.
1. Pocket Magnet Test
2. Sound Testing - Testing the gold by the sound
Usually and commonly known as the ‘ping’ test, enables us to tell whether a coin is made from real or imitation gold by listening to the sound it produces when struck. Precious metals will produce anextensive, high-pitched clear sound when struck as opposed to base metals, whose respective sounds when compared will be blunt, flat and shorter. Harmonizing and equalizing the coin at the end of your finger and tapping it with another coin should make a ringing sound clear enough, and the difference between a coin made from pure gold and one made from a fake, bogus or imitation should be noticeable.
