Canada British Columbia (Counterfeit) 1862
British Columbia experimented with coinage for a short time. In 1862 they minted a few test patterns like the one shown in our picture. Genuine pattern coins are extremely rare, selling for tens or hundreds of thousands of US dollars. These coins are heavily counterfeited, as is the piece in our picture. We have not been able to find a picture of a genuine coin. The counterfeit pieces are worth about zero.
