  1. If a crook has managed to forge a tungsten coin and then gold plated it to appear authentic then i,m afraid the old ping test could be fruitless, afaik tungsten has a very similar density to gold so it should ping the same especially under a thin gold plating. Many other tests for testing real gold should be done as the ops have mentioned,, even by eye it would generally be noticed as a fake if the item was gold plated tungsten.
  2. In the case of the larger bars the scammers were using tungsten due to its similar weight and density, unbelievable.
  3. What goes in must come out. Security must have been a bit Lax 🙂
