One Dollar Straits Settlements King Edward VII Counterfeits Coins

Some of  us love to collect  crown size coins like the British Trade Dollars, $1 Chinese Dragon coin and the 1 Piastre French Indo China maybe perhaps due to:-

  • Its large size and particularly looks beautiful when they are of XF+ to UNC condition( with very nice good eye appeal).
  • In high grade condition, these crown size coins are beautifully lustrous with very high silver content mainly weighing # 26.95g  with 0.9000 silver content.
  • Like gold, copper, and other metal commodity, these coins with high silver coins are actually silver bullion commodity where  the price or value will eventually go up in the turbulent future.

Due to aforesaid reasons, do not missed out on collecting the beautiful Straits Settlements  One Dollar crown size King Edward VII silver coin namely for the years 1903, 1903B & 1904B. As a contrast, the One Dollar 1907,1907H,1908 & 1909 individually weighs only 20.21 g with 0.900 silver content. { see King Edward VII’s mintage table } compared to the 1903-4 coins which weigh very much higher 26.95g !

However, don’t forget that are fakes or forgeries of the Straits Settlements One Dollar 1903B  and 1904B. As a reminder, below are  two faked copies of the 1903B ( incused ) and 1904B King Edward VII coins:-

ONE DOLLAR 1903B:

PICTURE 1A: FAKED $1 1903B KING EDWARD VII WEIGHING ONLY 16.95 G AND COINS LOOKS VERY GLOSSY

PICTURE 1B: FAKED $1 1903B KING EDWARD VII WEIGHING ONLY 16.95 G AND COINS LOOKS VERY GLOSSY

ONE DOLLAR 1904B

Picture 1a: Straits Settlements $1 1904B King Edward VII -forgery - WEIGHT IS ONLY 16.9G & DATE BEING ALTERED AT "4"

Picture 1b: Straits Settlements $1 1904B King Edward VII -forgery - WEIGHT IS ONLY 16.9G & DATE BEING ALTERED AT "4"

Picture 1c: Straits Settlements $1 1904B King Edward VII -forgery - WEIGHT IS ONLY 16.9G & DATE BEING ALTERED AT "4"

Incidentally, for the faked 1904B copy, one might consider this as an altered date which might be a better collectible coin item then the normal 1904B. Luckily, the alternation seems extremely crude to be an overdate and the weight of 16.95 instead of the usual 26.95g give it away as forgery coin.
