Thread: Unrecognized .999 fine silver coin

    Default Unrecognized .999 fine silver coin

    Hi all, I purchased a .999 fine silver, 1 troy ounce coin recently. It weighed on my metals scale 1.1 oz.

    The face of the coin has a large winged fantasy-like dragon (think in terms of Dungeons & Dragons) with a boy-like rider mounted on the dragon. The text around the border says "DRAGONRIDER". The spine of thr coin has almost US quarterlike roughness, albeit not has pronouced, the spine is rather thick and also has text that reads (in a sherwood forest robinhood style font): .999 fine silver --- One Troy Ounce.

    The reverse side of the coin has two dragons in a 69 rotation in a circular pattern mimicing the circular coin round shape with what looks to be some overlapping think ribbon in the middle almkst celtic symbol like but not quite. The outter edge border reads 3 separated words in a midevil font: LONGEVITY - HAPPINESS - PROSPERITY.

    On the obverse (front) of the coin at the foot of the dragon, looks like it might be designers initials: "RL" in the same midevil font.

    Its an awesome coin! Just dont know where its from. Anyone have any idea, details on this mystery coin?

    1.1 oz for a 1 oz 999 coin? Are you perhaps weighing in avoirdupois oz?

    10% is a very generous overage for a 999 coin.

    Without a picture I can't say much about the coin.

    Sounds like something from China and therefore probably not even silver.
    BEWARE of buying things like this.

    The seller works in an established gold/silver facility in a bank, counterfeit would put his business at risk, it has every characteristic of real silver, tone of silver on the edges due to barehand handling over the years. If i knew how to post a pic here i would.

    That stuff is lighter, never heavier. He probably used a 28 gram oz instead of the 31.1 troy oz to get the 1.1oz figure. I doubt it is fake.
