2014 Australian Kookaburra 1 Ounce Silver Coin

 

Notable Differences

  1. This area of the background is relatively flat on the counterfeit coin, where the genuine round has folds of different depths.
  2. The text is smaller and crisper on the genuine coin.
  3. The counterfeit coin has a ring of dots around the outside edge that are not present on the genuine coin.
  4. The counterfeit coin has the year 2014 under the queen's portrait instead of the denomination 1 DOLLAR that is present on the genuine coin.


Discussion & Detection

The quality of the bird and the queen's portrait are surprisingly good on this fake, however the dots and the year are glaring errors, making this one easy to spot.
