How to Test for Fake Silver & Gold Bullion Specific Gravity Weight Test

In recent years, the production of fake silver and gold bullion products has been on the rise.
Perhaps the best most cost effective testing for bullion products is the specific gravity test. For this test you will need a digital scale, some distilled water, some string and a cup.

First you weigh the item in question.

Then add the cup with water and balance the scale back to zero.

Next fully immerse the item into the water without touching the sides or bottom of the cup, take down the measurement.

Finally divide the dry weight of the item with it’s water weight and you will get the item’s specific gravity.

Silver’s specific gravity is 10.49 Gold’s Specific Gravity is 19.32
