Fake coin (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

slug

'fake coin' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for slug that I've seen before include "Bullet -- shot of liquor" , "Some whisky perhaps" , "slimy type" , "Shell-less mollusc ? bullet" , "Terrestrial mollusc" .)

I've seen this clue in the Newsday and The New York Times.
