Sigma Metalytics announces the release of the Precious Metal Verifier
that uses electronic technology to measure through the surface and
into the metal of samples to gauge the integrity of coins and bullion
made from gold, silver, platinum, palladium and rhodium.
The Precious Metal Verifier retails for $699.
Sigma Metalytics endeavored to find a solution to the uncertainties
that can accompany any bullion or coin investment. According to the
firm, the result is an easy to use instrument that in seconds can
assess a sample based on the electromagnetic characteristics of
metals. According to the firm, no physical damage is done to the coin
or bullion being tested, and protective packaging or numismatic cases
do not need to be removed.
The user chooses from a built-in menu which alloy is to be tested,
and the coin or bullion item is then placed on the unit's sensor. The
Precious Metal Verifier then measures if the conductivity of the
sample being tested is consistent with its extensively researched
database of metals.
Metals that can be measured include pure gold, 22-karat gold (.9167
fine), 90 percent gold, American Eagle gold, .9999 silver, .999
silver, .900 fine Morgan and Peace silver dollars, other 90 percent
silver items, .925 fine sterling silver and Britannia silver (.9584 fine).
Rarer materials such as platinum, palladium and rhodium are also
included in the standard measurements.
