1921 fatman fake or genuine?
« on: November 27, 2012, 09:22:08 PM »
Hello everyone, I have this coin that my grandfather gave to me last week, I would like to know if this coin is genuine or fake. I have read some information about these coins and the reverse image of this coin has different symbol, which makes me think mine is probably fake :(
Hope you could give me your opinion.

Welcome to the Chinese Coin Forum!

Unfortunately your 5-yuan Yuan Shih-Kai is a fake.  There are no such denomination issued for YSK.  See
