First two fanams should be genuine if they weigh 400 mgs each and are good Au.

OK for the 1st fanam, but the 2nd  is similar to the n 1.17.23 / 0,34g, listed by Hans Herrli ("Gold Fanams") as :"modern fakes and fabrication"   the other face could help to confirm that.
The 3rd is not listed and could be a recent imitation  too.

I have personally found Hans Herrli's book Gold Fanam very useful as a collector of fanams. Most common fanams which are widely fabricated are well documented in the book.

I would like to see the otherside of the fanams too. Most likely all the coins are genuine.
