    Things to look for:

    1. The Fake Minted Gold Bar do have additional Outer Plastic Packaging. While The Original Do Not have.

    2. The Serial Number on the Certicard is different as well.

    3. Mainly, SOLD at EBAY.

    most of PM bars in assays are now being counterfeit, unless you buy them from legit local dealers... I won't be touching any of these PM assay bars unless I hv my Sigma in full charged.. they're super-identical to the real ones and the amount of gold being layered on these are much more than the original releases as these crooks get better in producing them...

    worth to go and buy with abit more premium in reputable dealers than those of the back of someone's ute!

    Certicards were never a good idea IMO. It creates a much easier method of forging > just replicate the packaging and the inherent barrier to physical contact does the rest. 99% of people wont have access to a PMV or XRF, so it's rare they will be found and destroyed, polluting our gold pool.
