China coin authentication
« on: October 19, 2015, 05:49:28 PM »
I recently discovered what I believe to be a China YUNNAN PROVINCE Dollar Y# 258. Is there any possibility for this coin to be magnetic? I'm not sure if it is close to 100% silver or not, but my coin is slightly magnetic. Is this a fake?

Welcome to the forum.

Yes, it is a fake. When the coin contains iron, it will be magnetic. Most fake coins are made with other metals which may not be magnetic.
