I bought my 1984 silver plated gold fish set cheaply from Lucklymoney 6 months or so ago.  The dragon eyes weights 15.58g.  It has nice cameo effect and radial striation in the mirrored background.  I believe that can be achieved only by plating first and strike later (plating before strike).  It is variety 2 (broken stem) with the characteristic fish body defect on the reverse.
