Purity of Gold
- Purity of Gold
Gold purity is measured in karats. The term "Karat" is distinct from the unit of measurement "Carat," which is used to weigh gemstones. The purity of gold, measured in karats, influences its value. "Karat" is derived from the term "Carob," and it dates back to antiquity trading times when the seed of the Carob tree had been used as a benchmark weight to measure valuable metals. Because pure gold is exceedingly soft and pliable, it must be alloyed with other metals to provide the strength and durability necessary to produce valuable things.
As already stated, Gold purity is expressed in karat (denoted as KT), and another way of determining the purity of the metal is the fineness number. When gold purity is measured in Karats, 24KT is the purest type of gold. However, 24KT gold is regarded as too soft to be used in jewelry or ornaments. As a result, various metals such as zinc and silver are added to gold to make it into jewelry.
The gold coin and bar offered by MMTC-PAMP are devoid of any other metal other than pure gold. Every MMTC-PAMP gold coin you buy goes through a rigorous refining and purification process to ensure that you always get the most refined metal possible.
Another approach to determine the purity of gold is to use the fineness number. Its purity is assessed in parts per thousand. As per the World Gold Council website, 24KT should be 1.0. In other words, 24/24. However, gold is likely to have minor impurities and can only be refined to 999.9 parts per thousand.
MMTC-PAMP strives to exceed 999.9 purity to provide you with 999.9+ purity. The BIS is hallmarked, and the fineness number on the piece of gold signifies that it has been verified by BIS to be of the fineness /purity level that is stamped as a component of the hallmark.
