Dear Maikaa,

I am sorry to tell you that this is fake coin. Yuan Shih Kai dollar also known as fatman dollar dated 1914 (3 years of Republic of China) with L.Giorgi signature behind a shoulder is a pattern coin. Such of coin you can only get on auction house. Your coin is 100% fake. On genuine coin L.Giorgi signature is very small. Yours is at least twice,if not 3 time bigger than on the genuine coin. I think the metal from which is made your coin is white copper, which imitates silver.
I hope you can get full money refund. Be careful next time when you buy old chinese silver coins.
