US Fake George Washington Dollar 1865 | washington dollar george eagle man metal hawk base falcon pewter king god trust unum liberty fac america we united pluribus You are very sharp, Carmen, to catch the faint FAC SIMIL (facsimile) on the reverse side of this coin. The US minted silver dollars in 1865, but they used a beautiful Seated Liberty design as shown at this CoinQuest link.

This coin looks like a modern Washington quarter and was obviously produced as a novelty or some type of promotion. The manufacturer wisely included the faint FACSIMILE on the coin to avoid going to jail.

Your coin is a counterfeit made of base metal and worth zero, although I'd be willing to pay a few dollars to have one in my collection. Technically, it is illegal to own counterfeit coins, so don't tell anyone ...

These coins were most likely minted before 1972 when the HOBBY PROTECTION ACT made it illegal to produce facsimiles of US coins unless they were prominently inscribed with the word COPY. Now it is possible to purchase copies of coins that you would never normally see, and some of them are truly gorgeous. Check this link.
