Token: US Fake Gold (Counterfeit)
Token: US Fake Gold (Counterfeit)

Any valuable coin is subject to counterfeiting. This page concentrates on US gold coins, but any valuable coin fits well.

Fakes are all worth small amounts compared to the coin faked, as follows:


  • Miniatures - novelty items much smaller than actual coins
  • Oversized - novelty items much larger than actual coins
  • Wrong pattern - novelties with inscriptions and patterns that are obviously wrong
  • Legal reproductions - fakes that look real but are inscribed with COPY, WRL, REPLICA or similar markings
  • Altered coins - genuine coins made more valuable by adding or subtracting details such as mint marks
  • Counterfeits - coins made by crooks for financial gain
  • Counterfeit slabs - counterfeits housed in fake numismatic slabs
The last three are sinister and should be reported to authorities. The first three are worth almost zero. Legal reproductions usually sell retail for $20 to $50 US dollars.

All US gold coins are subject to counterfeiting. Here are CoinQuest pages that show genuine coins:

- $5 and $10 1838 to 1908

- $2.50 and $5 1908 to 1929

Always deal with reputable buyers and sellers. Never give money to someone you do not implicitly trust.
