Can you get a picture of the edge (side) of the coin and post it here? One way to spot a fake is that there will be a seam around the edge. I don't see any "smoking gun" that says forgery on your coin but I do have some areas of concern. The two biggest issues are the "bubbly" texture of the coin and the fact that it looks so much like the fake you found. I would never be able to say for certain but I will ask some people that are more knowledgeable than me and see what they say.
