Hello, was wondering if this is real or if its a counterfeit, and how would you tell.
Also wanted to know how to differentiate between a real and a counterfeit.

Thanks!

There was never such a coin struck. This is part of a souvenir "token" set.

@shuayb, first welcome to CCF. Second, just to clarify what @gc and @keith are saying. This piece is not a counterfeit in the sense that it was struck unofficially and intended to be used as money. Rather it is a souvenir token. Of course, we are glad to answer any questions that you have, but I think that you will find numista.com to be a great resource for comparing your pieces.

... o.o yes it's fake, and very common and terrible one at that.

That's why there probably a sarcastic tone to everyones reply, there will be maybe a 3-4 post (maybe same counterfieters) a year asking the exact same question, next time weight and search internet first. I guessing you got it in a set therefore very likely others are fake as well.
