Some authentic coins were countermarked with a punch to make otherwise common coins seem more exotic. Numerous modern counterfeits are also produced with this mark for the same reason. Rules for determining 1914 and 1920 Yuan Shih-Kai (YSK) dollar authenticity would still apply.

"According to some research, this YSK Soviet stamped dollar was created by a coin dealer named Ping Yu-Lin, who also made many counterfeit coins including different types of Chinese Soviet money during [19]30s, in Shanghai. The punch was made by an ex-empolyee of Fukien Mint. These were leaked out by his partner after they had arguments. Ping later died in prison. The Soviet stamped dollars also found on coins with date yr.9. The so-called Fantasy coins are still collectable but just for fun."
