Russian 10 roubles, 1899, gold FZ; real or fake?

Recommended Posts

Hi. Any experts on Russian coins?


Got this one as a gift, allegedly gold, but have no idea if it's real.


1. Don't have scales but it seems to weigh more than a 2EUR coin, so about the proper weight of 8.6 grams. Doesn't react to magnet.

2. It has turned dark brown, which gold shouldn't do. Equally weird is the marking FZ on the edge, which is different from the FZ-s found on google.


Any idea if it's real?
