It is not possible to give an opinion on photos, unless you have specific reasons for doubt. It is probably the light, but the colour of the metal is too blue. Have you checked the weight and diameter? If you have doubts about the silver, ask the opinion of a friendly jeweller. Have you checked the edge? Was there anything suspicious, like irregularities?

Dear Sir,  Dia, metal,edge and weight is same according to its year but as per the design of it some people say it is fake. This reason I'm asking.

The 1881 and 1898 look fake - the date design elements are off.

The 1887 could be OK, but I would view it with suspicion if it came with the other two coins in a group. Otherwise at 1st glance from photos, it could be OK.
