Hello,

now in Corona times I have some time for beter exploring my coin collections so I have some suspicious about some coins.

First one is 1 rixdollar 1821 from Ceylon,

weight is 8,74, diameter is 26,8 but coin is not medal alignment but coin alignment.

Please tell me is this coin a fake or contemporary fake or real coin?

COIN alignment is correct for these, and that's what your piece is.

This piece is either an ex-jewelry piece that suffered in its life... or a cast modern numismatic fake. Does look like a mount mark at 12 o'clock above the king...

The Rix Dollar was not a locally produced crude coin. It was manufactured in England and the examples that I have seen or owned always matched the English coinage in terms of crisp strike with no field irregularities.

This does NOT look like a genuine strike.

Perhaps it may have been mounted as jewelry but the level of field damage is atypical for even that use. Perhaps it started as a replica intended for jewelry. It really looks cast to me.
My book on Counterfeit Portrait 8Rs is available from Amazon http://ccfgo.com/TheUnrealReales or from me directly if you want it signed.
