If its too cheap n good to be true, then its likely a fake.

Very recently, I've come across individuals at a Malaysian buy & sell online platform liquidating fake silver coins at half the price of the genuine ones.

Out of curiosity, I called and spoke to the seller. He claimed it to be genuine and offered to show the receipt of his purchase from a 'Taiwanese' company.

Please be very careful guys... If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.

Some pointers:

1) Be wary of coins which are way cheaper than usual unless buying from a reputable bullion dealer (local & overseas).

2) Although you can get good auction prices or deals over e-bay, use your discretion when buying from overseas ebay sellers. look at the type of items the seller is selling and the number of positive feedback of similar items, the date the seller joined e-bay, the number of name changes of e-bay seller and whether seller has Paypal buyer protection. I got scammed (almost AUD3000 before however I was lucky enough to get a full refund from Paypal after 4 weeks).

3) when buying from local sellers, get it verified via pawnshop on the pretext of finding out the value of the coin before making the exchange.
