Hi. I got such a coin, but its authenticity is in doubt. I ask you to express your point of view. The weight of the coin 28.33 - 28.39g.. X-ray fluorescence analysis of surface shows the following composition: Ag 74.15%, Cu 20.01%, Zh 2.67%, Fe 0.183%, Pb 0,147%, 2.84% - other additives.

Sounds like it has too much silver - a genuine 1927 crown is only 50% silver!

But the details look similar to mine, purchased from a reputable dealer long before the Chinese forgery invasion:

I've seen Chinese fakes of these at Boot Fairs, but they always look wrong.

Yeah 74% silver doesn't seem right - The Royal Mint wouldn't have been so drastically off.
