2021 Krugerrand .999 1oz - PMV results


Recommended Posts

Anyone run a 2021 Krugerrand .999 1oz through their PMV (Standard Sigma). My PMV set to 99.9 plot within the brackets to the right but def further out than I'm used to. On 99.99 they fall just outside wheras my 2020 Krugs fall just inside. Also getting ranges of 1.60-1.72 in measurement mode whereas my 2020 Krugs are usually around 1.65-1.68. Just wondering if the alloys for the 2021 are a bit different (more copper).

Anyone got some numbers that I can compare with?

.999/.9999 is as pure as investment metal gets. Anything else in there is an unintentional trace element that stops it from being declared technically fully pure. I've never used a tester like yours OP, but pure silver should be within the ranges specified in the user manual so if what you're getting is outside that then maybe fire an email at the manufacturer for advice? Are the differences in readings between the 2020 coins and the 2021s considerable or within an acceptable margin of error?

Thanks for the comments Liam. These Krugs test up similar Silver Eagles on the PMV so just wondering if anyone had the same experience, or had any info they could pass on. I'm not too concerned as they pass all my other checks (SG/Magnet/Ping/Dimensions/Visual) and I also bought them from one of the best dealers here in NZ.
