I bought some of the 2015 & 2016 3 yuan when they came out. since those coins are so small, without looking at it closely, its kinda of hard to tell.

Attached are pictures of fake vs genuine for 2015 and 2016 New Year 3 Yuan silver coin. The pictures are copied from the following website.

http://www.coin001.com/read.php?tid=81467&page=1 (pictures of 2016 are in page 2)

The pictures show the old version of fake. The NGC article is for a new version of fake.

The old version can be detected readily by comparing the size of stars on the reverse.

In general, the fake coin still shows a rough surface as shown in the pictures as well as the pictures at NGC website.
