Got this one in some change today and something tells me I need to weigh this and determine if it's a fake. The polar bear seems frosted to me however the queen is not but I also see lines tuning vertically so maybe a German planchet? All opinions welcome!

Doesn't look like a fake. Not sure about German planchet

No it's not a fake just a circulated coin.

Thanks Mcshilling, any idea why the bear looks frosted or why the coin seems to be blatantly new? Perhaps PL?

CCF user t_y is the person who researched and wrote the definitive article on the 1996 German planchet.

See CN Journal, 2013, Vol. 58, No. 8 (Oct, 2013), pp. 480-482.
