Unofficial Andaman & Nicobar coin set??

Joseph Lang, a partner of Stephen Album Rare Coins, a well known American dealer (who has also started attending major Indian coin shows) is responsible for this particular set. (Along with several other fantasy coins from a number of fantasy nations) >:(

You can see his initials (JL) on reverse of so called Andaman and Nicobar coins.

I saw these coins on ebay USA earier this morning...and on a couple of websites thereafter....obviously these have no legal standing...so who has made these coins i wonder ? Though the motifs are quite nice !

Recently I saw this set physically kept  for sale at one of the airport.

Shame .

Cheers ;D
