The offending article:
It seems someone in China has had the 'bright idea' of taking advantage of the pandemic to make fake Gibraltar coin BU presentation packets. They come complete with strange text, spelling errors, awful design aesthetics and probably a fake mintage (they should add a few zeroes).
I live in Hong Kong and they are coming out here, the trouble is no one realises they are fake yet. A simple Google search shows nothing coming up from the usual British mints and distributors. When I first picked it up and examined it, it looked cheaply made and below quality but it was being sold at a reputable silver bullion dealer and it came in that nice looking plastic bag. Seems they are getting the knack for it, people are already finding these in their change back in the West.
I think it's pretty scummy to take advantage of the situation to start making fake commemorative coins, there are already so many fake silver and gold coins I guess they wanted to try something new stay alert, people!
