Gibraltar : Hercules Fakes
The Gibraltar Hercules Series of £2 coins has gained huge popularity in the past couple of years. Due to their current high price tag (most sell for £200+) it isn't surprising there are now fakes. Luckily they're not very good and are easily spotted by those with even just a little £2 coin knowledge.
The easiest thing to notice is the lack of edge milling and the super-reflective surfaces (a few even have spelling errors). Particulars such as weight and diameter are incorrect too.
The 1998 Boar IS a different colour, it was produced first. The rest came later.
