I bought this coin.
It should have 48.6g but has 49.2g. Diameter is 45mm and thickness 3,3mm on the edge.
Is it ok?
Is there a possibility of counterfeiting?

Thank you for opinions

Although that is a particularly substantial variation in weight, I have cracked / melted 100s of these over the years, and the weights tend to be a bit all over the place - either the accepted deviation was greater for this issue than most, or QC was bad.

Although there are Chinese fakes of the Montreal Olympic coins, they are quite poor, and easily distinguished - your example looks perfectly authentic.
