Dragon Dollar

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a 1911 One Dollar Dragon with dot after the ‘R’ also has a chop mark.

The coin is tarnished with a black/red colour. It’s has a nasty scratch to both sides and the reeded edge is heavily tarnished black. 

I have read that there are 31 variety’s of this year? Does anyone know what variety this one is? Any idea on value?

All responses are greatly appreciated.

I know nothing about these kind of coins - so excuse me if I am wrong...

but

That looks like a dime a dozen fake chinese coin that is silver plated at best...that would explain the horrible black tarnishing etc. 

I may be wrong - I am like Jon Snow to these coins, "I know nothing"

Is it real?

Thanks for your message BYB. The weight is spot on at 26.90 grams measures correct and SG was for 90% silver. I believe it is real but not an expert myself. Had read that the black marks could be some kind of ink, but not sure.

Here are replicas I got on eBay for $1.50 -$2.50 free shipping.

Interesting that the oriental border of the new Brits are very similar.

Thanks for your post, I have seen those replicas before but they are almost always under weight, come up light on the specific gravity, don’t ring, and the magnet slide just falls off real fast.

Thanks for the link, I have sent the guy a message with some photos to see what he says about the coin. I’ll add his comments here when he replies.

Maybe worth to grade that to see weather it’s genuine and added value 

doesn’t matter if it’s dead slab it will still add value if that’s genuine dragon dollar

For dragon dollar it’s easy , if not sure , 30 dollars grading , genuine the value goes up even if that’s problem slab such as cleaned , chop mark , just do u mind that 30 dollars 

dragon dollar isn’t easy to find a good one that’s why in this case dead or not it adds value as soon as it’s geniune 

enjoy ;)

There are so many of these are silver but they are fake , same as sovereign they are gold but fake sovereign , because dragon dollar fetch such a premium that’s why there are so many fakes , look at eBay , even slab dragon can be fake slab lol
