Welcome to Silver Coins

Collecting gold or silver coins is a serious hobby for many collectors worldwide and to serve these people there are various rare silver and gold coins for sale at numismatic marketplaces like eBay and other web sites where coin sellers and coin buyers meet. Unfortunately, there are also many silver-plated or metal made counterfeit coins (various “silver dollar” coins as an example) worldwide for sale who are mostly made in various Asian countries. These counterfeit coins are sometimes from such good quality that it is very difficult to identify them as a counterfeit coin if you’re not a real coin expert.

The big problem with buying coins through the internet is always that a collector cannot touch the coin and he or she has to judge the quality and worse identify the coin from an image that has been provided by the seller. That makes it very risky to buy old coins online if you do not know the reputation of the seller who is offering the coin. Knowing what you want to buy and having specific coin knowledge and relevant data at hand, like the weight and size from that specific rare gold or silver coin in combination with the seller’s reputation, can give you an advantage in buying these specific coins online.

Knowledge about each specific coin is very important and therefore we have created this web site which enables us to share detailed information about how to recognize a counterfeit coin visually when compared with a real silver coin. With a close-up picture from a counterfeit and the real silver coin, showing their details on one web page now enables our visitors to learn how to distinguish the differences of these coins and become a coin expert.

Should you own a counterfeit coin, (silver coins) which are of such good quality that only an expert eye could identify as a counterfeit coin then please share them with us by making a detailed picture from it and email it to us. With your support, you will help other coin collectors worldwide in identifying them as a counterfeit coin and make collecting gold or silver coins a less fraudulent hobby.
