Welcome to the forum, member #2,000 !

The 1898 Pei Yang dragon dollar should weigh about 27 gm. with a diameter of 38mm. Clearly, your coin is a fake.

choki:
Really appreciate the prompt reply. According to this website http://museumvictoria.com.au/collections/items/72897/coin-1-dollar-chihli-china-year-24-1898-ad - The diameter of this particular coin is 39 mm and the weight is 26.92 grams. My scale is not working 100% as it shows -1 gram before I weigh the coin. Will try to weigh it again with a proper scale and keep my fingers crossed. These coins were given to me many..many years ago from Tibet. Cheers...

poconopenn:
The coin has a mismatched obverse and reverse. There is no such coin. The specifications mentioned in my previous response is for the dragon side.

choki:
Thank you for the appraisal. Will post more decent coins later and hopefully one will turn out real as I'm not really a coin collector.
