Christmas Island, $5, 2014 fantasy piece

Christmas Island, $5, 2014 fantasy piece.  The seller admits that this is unofficial.  This is particularly worrying, because it has the Queen's portrait, which usually has to be authorised.

It was issued by the Russian coin and medal dealer Vitaly Bakhtinov who also designed the piece. 240 pieces were minted, all of them in silver plated brass.
