    Does anyone know the dimensions of the 1 kilo Silver cast bars? I bought one off a Gumtree seller recently and it seems to me its fake.

    The bar is very grainy everywhere apart from the front face.

    The thickness isn't 22 mm as stated by the Perth Mint.

    I have done a neo slide test it doesn't slide fast straight away at a 45 degree angle. When i move the magnet back and forth to feel the field in mid air it i do feel a resistance.

    Opinions greatly appreciated.

    Pics attached soon.

    The pics look okay, and the neo should slide slower than a non PM material such as wood when held at about 60deg. What does it weigh?

    I've handled plenty of these, looks legit to me. Take it to your local dealer/coin shop. Tell them u want to sell it, they'll test it for sure.

    It looks fine. My suggestion is, do a density test.
    Here is video.


    Long words short, you need a big jar of water and a scale. If you put your one kilo silver into water without touch the jar, the scale should increase by around 95 to 96.
