Hello I am pandelle 2000 Panda
« on: January 29, 2018, 04:03:44 PM »
I would like to know if my 2000 Silver Panda is a fake.  I bought it on ebay by way of India from China.  The weight is good and it does not stick to a magnet however....I do not like where the dot is on the Panda side of the coin.  It is right after the Ag.  Would someone take a look and be able to tell if it is a fake.
Thank you

Please tell me how you know.  I like buying Pandas and trying to be able to identify the fakes.

The biggest giveaway is the pattern on the middle of the stairs. Until 2002, that is supposed to be smooth without a pattern. The other one is the panda's eyes. The third the reeding on this fake coin is slanted and it is supposed to be straight. Welcome to the forum :)

Feel free to post high resolution pictures of coins that you are interested in buying here on the Forum before you pull the trigger so that experienced members can verify whether they are genuine or fake.

What year did they start the diagonal reeding?
