I just discovered a web site that sells fake coins. Go to greatamericancoincompany.com.

They have some interesting fake coins including fake Pirate coins which I thought might be something fun to have.

I ordered a fake 24-karate Gold Buffalo coin, the real one is worth about $900. These fake coins have the words "Copy" engraved on one side, so keep an eye on what you buy.

Have fun folks.

There are some coins that look really nice and I might be able to incorporate some of these coins into my act. Thanks.

I just received my first Replica $50 Gold Buffalo coin. It was shown to a few people and they assumed it was real, they over looked the word "Copy". The coin itself is heavy and very shiny giving it the impression that it is real.

I visited US Mint web site and looked closely at the real Gold Buffalo coin, at the bottom it says "1oz .999 fine Gold." The replica says "1 MILS .999 Fine Gold." What does "MILS" stand for?

The bad news is that I have only had it for one day using it in my knuckle roll, and the gold sheen is coming off in one small location and showing the silver color underneath, it is kind of hard to detect the discoloration. It did come inside a plastic encapsulation, and I guess it should have stayed inside, but where is the fun in that? I now just placed it back inside the encapsulation, and will show it to people while encapsulated, it might be more convincing that way.

This will probably be the last Replica coin that I will ever buy. My new Silver Eagle from US Mint (the real thing) should be arriving next week, and that coin will definitely stay inside the plastic encapsulation.

Have fun folks
