Half Dollar Counterfeits
This website is a platform dedicated to the study of circulated contemporary counterfeit U.S. coins. The core mission is research - this is why 'Research' is the first tab at the top of the Homepage. Research is fundamental in order to better understand which counterfeits were made, how they were made, by whom, where, when, and why.
In order to answer these questions, and develop a stronger understanding of this part of history, it will take a collective and collaborative effort from many people.
The study of circulated contemporary counterfeit U.S. coins has the largest research growth potential among all other areas within U.S. numismatics. Therefore, there is a lot left to learn, stories to uncover, and important information to share.
In the future, efforts may be made to expand into combating the adverse effects to this hobby from modern counterfeits of classic U.S. coins.
