Those weight and dimensions are much the same as a 90% weight percent silver Yuan Shi-Kai coin. It means the coin is gold plated.

The original coin planchet were gold, one would expect a coin with heavier weight.

The correct weight of 1914 Yuan Shih Kai silver dollar should be from 26,5g to 26,9g. Diameter should be from 38,50mm to 39mm and thickness: 2,5mm
