“Chinese Replica £2 Coins”

An interesting site I came across while researching a token from Willings Services Limited

See other parts of the site for more fake coins information.

I'ts a shame that we as collectors have to be concerned about this, but that's the world we live in. As time goes by the fakes get better and better and more difficult to detect even by experts. Calling attention to the problem is one of the ways we have to combat the junk flooding the market today.

 It takes some of the fun out of collecting when you have to worry about the legitimacy of a coin you've bought or would like to buy. Thanks for the links, Mal.

Indeed an interesting website of a company that has been very cooperative in the past. The big majority of the counterfeit decimal coins of the UK, a fraction of which are listed on the website, are made to enter general circulation. Only fakes of the Kew Gardens 50p, EEC 50p, mule 20p and the Swimming 50p with the lines over the face are mainly being used to scam collectors.
