What Is a Sterling Filled Medal?


What's a Sterling FIlled medal?

Sterling Silver Filled (sometimes referred to as "1/20 silver filled") is a strip of sterling silver that is bonded to a base medal.  It must be at least 1/20 sterling silver content of the total weight of the medal.  It looks the same and wears the same as pure Sterling Silver.  Sterling Silver Filled is not silver plating.

It's a great durable process that costs only a fraction of a sterling silver medal.
