I've often seen one fake among a number of real coins. I've never seen one real and valuable coin among a bunch of fakes.
See if you can get some clearer shots of the faces. The edge photo is nice and sharp.
I'll do better than that: I'll lead with a disclaimer that I've rarely seen images of real coins of this sort, and I'm the furthest thing from an expert on them.
To me, in those images, the coin looks to have the same coloring and the same mushy details that I usually see in cheap modern fakes flooding in from overseas. It may well be that a real coin could have this coloring, and that it's just the photos preventing me from seeing sharp details. But given where you say it came from, and given the OVERWHELMING prevalence of fakes on these, it just seems super-unlikely that this is a real coin. Again, though, see if you can post some clearer photos, and wait for the people who do know the series.
These coins can be seen in a slab very easily on e-bay.
