Hi FN!

Is there anything we can do to challenge or somehow fine this counterfeiters. Are numismatic clubs providing sanctions to counterfeiting? thank you.

Hi nash!

I'll just barge in and make a comment. As a long time collector, we cannot fully stop this rampant counterfeiting. But if you are just starting in the hobby, invest more on books or reference first before getting seriously into buying and investing into coins.

Goodluck!

Books are one option, but education in general is one of the best antidotes to the poison of counterfeiting.

Today the improving quality of counterfeits in some cases is outpacing our ability to detect them. Recently both advanced numismatists and grading firms have been victims of counterfeiting. In the US many books have been written and websites devoted to the topic of counterfeit American coins.

In the Philippines our problem is somewhat different. Few books have been written in nearly four decades covering the breadth of our numismatics. Published reference materials in print or on the web are scarce. Counterfeiters know this and exploit it to their advantage.

Whether the coins you collect are Chinese, Japanese, American, or Philippine, I would say do your best to attend shows and auctions, study the coins you see there to learn the characteristics of genuine coins, and develop relationships with collectors and dealers whom you trust.

i would prefer that we combat counterfeiting not just through education but for actually reporting such people.

we cannot allow these sellers to proliferate. Evil or Very Mad
