Interesting read.  I hadn't noticed this before.  You can click on each coin for more detail.

Only one of the 25 is a modern coin: a 2000 10Y Yuan silver Panda. I have seen dealers make mistakes on this one, but it is straightforward to spot the fakes if you have ever compared them to a genuine coin. I don't publish information on this topic any longer as the counterfeiters also learn from the explanation, but if you see me at a coin show sometime just ask and I'll be happy to discuss it with you.

Best wishes,
