About fakes and counterfeit krugerrand

For a number of years, false Krugerrands were produced and manufactured in China. Made mostly with a core of tungsten and gold plated.

A fake almost weighs the same as a real Krugerrand with the same measures.

Sometimes we can spot thanks to their color golden yellow rather than a true dew Krugerrand.

“Gold sounding and stumbling”

A Kruggerand that is rotated and ringing in his swing and his swing on a table or glass will have a more serious and much less acute than genuine Krugerrand.
