WFineness
  • The fineness of a precious metal refers to the ratio by weight of the primary metal to any added base metals or impurities traditionally expressed as parts per 1,000.
  • A piece of alloy metal containing a precious metal may have the weight of its precious component referred to as its fine weight. For example, 1 troy ounce of 18 karat gold (which is 75% gold) may be said to have a fine weight of 0.75 troy ounces.
  • Many precious metals are used in the form of alloys. Other metals are added to increase hardness, to make the metal more practical for use in such items as coins and jewelry, or to decrease the cost of the alloy.
