From what I can find out, the weight for a double sovereign is, as you stated, 15,98 grams.

In the case of you one, it would be most likely a fake, though I would recommend having it weighted again with another scale just to confirm it.

Incorrect weight is a sure-fire indication of counterfeit. So is quality. Check the side-by-side comparison of your coin with a genuine one. The details are off on your coin, and so is the overall quality of the piece.

Skypepi's coin is certainly fake. A jeweler can determine gold content, which is probably zero.
