You folks know your fakes..I appreciate the knowledge base you share, for sure. Here's my other Chinese medals, bought last month. 2 Oz Silver "The Monkey Year Silver Medal With Giant Panda", Shenyang Mint, limited to mintage of 499. Weight is spot on at 62.2, and, 62.3(I think my scale rounded it up a tad..probably 62.26 or so..can reweigh, if you need it. COA sheet states weight at 62.208g. Reeds look very crisp(unlike the 2015 Kilo you folks ID earlier, which had crappy reeds, and numerous small bumps, pimples). I'll let you folks give the yah..or nah on this. To my novice eyes, looks/weighs OK. Bought from a legit seller, Bob Arsonault. http://chinesemedals.com/t/silver
Thanks again

Why do you doubt it's authenticity?

Seems real enough to me.

Bob and Chinesemedals sell real MCC......the one medal overlooked on his site is the 1994 PF 69 World Cup 3.3 oz silver.   Several overseas dealers say it is semi rare or rare and seen in the Asia market 2 to 3 times a year..........

I saw the antique version on another forum, and have to admit that is one sharp looking medal.

I want one.  :001_tt2:
