    The fact it’s being advertised for $2100, which is almost $600 UNDER spot price, should be enough of a red flag for you. I wouldn’t go near it.

    Yea I won't be touching it. The price is what caught my eye but looking at the gaps around the bar and the kangaroo print on the back it's bleeding onto the edge made me question it's authenticity.

    Cheers

    It's a fake. The roos on the back give it away with them overlapping into the edging. You can see it mainly on the bottom left

    Thanks for mentioning. I'm still very new to this site and figuring out some of its features.

    The supposed "fake" seems identical to me to those shown by reputable retailers, this one from APMEX:

    I'd buy from APMEX any time of day.. They wouldn't be selling fake 1oz-es just to tarnish their reputable business.. They will refund or exchange should you have doubts in their products in a heart-beat!
