Here's what I can spot:

 

1. The digits in 1975 are different - compare the two 7s and 9s.

2. The ground under the Springbok is different between 1975 and the 2011 example

3. The head and shoulder of the Springbok is different - the right 1975 coin has more detail than the two others

4. The 2011 coin has finer grooves and therefore more

5. The "FYNGOUD 1OZ..." description is positioned differently between 1975 and 2011

6. The letters in "FYNGOUD 1 OZ... " are sligthly different - FYN seems to be smaller in the right 1975 coin

7. The 2011 coin is PROOF CAMEO/DEEP CAMEO

8. Gold content should normally be about 90-92% and not 88.4%

9. Diameter should be slightly less

Pretty good eye xsiandrea, but you have left out one very important aspect. A big one too.

One in the middle seems to be more silver or different in color?:idea:

If they were handed to me I would say the middle one is a forgery.

That colour thing is what alerted me in the first place.

Could any of the numismatic experts here perhaps list a couple of the more obvious things to look out for (to spot a forgery) when buying 1 oz Kruger's?

 

- Weight of course being the obvious one, but what is deemed as acceptable in terms of actual vs official weight?

- What else should one definitely look out for?
