Detect fake gold and silver coins or bars quickly and easily with the Precious Metal Verifier from Sigma Metalytics! Using the known resistivity of pure gold, silver, platinum and palladium, as well as 22K gold, crown gold, sterling, and 90% silver, the PMV can detect fakes even if they are encased in plastic or slabbed.* The PMV saves time and money by alerting you right off if the metal content is not genuine. Catching one gold fake can more than pay for the machine.
The PMV is completely non-destructive, and uses no acids or consumables. Get a reading on the target in one second or less. The wand attachments allow testing of small coin and bars, and coins in album pages - simply run the wand down the row of coins without removing them from their pockets to quickly test them all. The handy instruction booklet comes complete with charts to help you match the correct wand for each circumstance.
The Bullion setting on the Precious Metal Verifier detects fake gold bars, silver bars, and platinum bars even through plating that is 2mm thick or more. No drilling and no filing required. As an official distributor for Sigma Metalytics, Gainesville Coins is able to bring you this remarkable machine for a price well under MSRP. The PMV costs less than 1/10 the price of many portable XRF machines, and has a 15-hour battery life. To recharge it, you can use the included charger, or even charge it from your PC or laptop's USB port. The USB port on the PMV also allows you to update the firmware when Sigma releases capabilities to measure more types of coins.
The Sigma Metalytics PMV comes with three wands, soft carrying case, instruction manual, and USB cable and charger.
Note: The PMV is a new and important tool for use in detecting fake precious metal coins and bars, but can only tell you if the metal content matches the chosen profile. Check the weight and diameter on coins as well as the metal content, and examine them for signs that they may have been altered to look like a key date.
*small fractional gold and coins in "high side" slabs may be too far away from the slab's surface for the PMV to obtain a reading.
