Hmm, stumbled on this article on how to convincingly make a fake gold bar.

http://www.popsci.com/diy/article/20...fake-gold-bars

I still think those fake bars will not pass the ultrasonic thickness test.

Is it the norm for ASE coin printing on both side in reverse direction ?

I notice this strange orientation which is diff from the CML or the Britannia coin
Hope it is not a fake coin as it was purchase from a respectable dealer.

Can someone confirm this ?

all American coins are like that. You hold the coin in front of you, but you flip it up or down when you want to view the reverse.

Americans do it this way, but for us Asians/the rest of the world we tend to flip the coin sideways thus when you do that on a US coin the reverse will be upside-down.

Not all asian coins do that actually. One of the garden series silver proof (think is matte version) from Shanghai mint is like the ASE.

If you are really fearful, just buy from the reputable dealers. Else only get NGC/PCGS graded slabs. That's what I do always.
