Silver Eagle Coins Are Yours Fake Or Counterfeit?

Question by ron How to spot a fake American Silver Eagle from China

Best answer: Collecting silver coins is a serious hobby for many collectors worldwide and to serve these people there are various silver coins for sale at reliable, honest numismatic marketplaces like Boost Silver and other web pages where coin sellers and coin buyers meet.

Unfortunately there are many silver plated or lesser-metal counterfeit coins currently being sold online (various “silver dollar” coins for example). These counterfeit coins are sometimes of such good quality that it is very difficult to identify them as a counterfeit coin if you are not a coin expert.

The big problem with buying coins through the internet is that you cannot touch the coin and must judge the quality and authenticity of the coin from an image and description provided by the seller. That makes it very risky to buy 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 silver coin in combination with the seller’s reputation can give you an advantage in buying these specific coins online.

To avoid purchasing a fake look for close-up pictures of real coins, showing the details of the engraving for comparison, also try to obtain the exact coin specification from the mint. Overall silver coins are a very sound investment in an uncertain economy, and with a little research you can be certain the coins you ar3e buying are the real thing.
