Chinese coin - medal

Some years ago my granfather found this coin in a field own by him near Milan. I found some similar coins on this website, but not exactly the same. I would like to know what it is and if it's real or fake. Can you help me please?

  • Hi Marco -- Yes. It is a "China Kwangtung (Kwang-Tung) Double Dragon Fantasy Tael and Half Tael (Fakes are possible) 1888 to 1908" found at this link:

    You can tell by the surface quality and mushy strike that it is a 'crude counterfeit' as pictured on our page above.
