The Gold Lock Coin Scanner (Patent #9,934,639) is a low-cost portable tungsten illuminator that is small enough to fit in a pocket and does not require batteries.  This test apparatus is designed to detect tungsten inside gold and silver objects.  Tungsten (19.25 grams/cc) is nearly the same density/weight of gold (19.3 grams/cc) and is the ideal material for counterfeiting gold and silver objects due to its relatively low cost ($4/ounce) and nearly identical density/weight.

This model is designed for unclad coins. For clad coins or bars use the Gold Bullion and Coin Scanner.  Recommended for investors that deal with significant quantities of unclad coins.

How to use

Place the coin inside the scanner.  Move the magnetic activator in small circles close to the scanner.  Magnetic anomalies will be illuminated by a visible distortion in the green aurora of the scanner lens; this indicates a foreign body in the gold or silver.
