What metal do they use?

Would the weight be off?

What is the value of a real one?

Wanna buy some coins?



Metal- various white metal alloys used.


Weight- Always underweight*


Value- Most of the copied coins are of genuine coins normally valued at $1-50



*Except for those struck on superb dies on actual silver planchets- those are very dangerous, and far different from your run-of-the-mill Chinese copies.
