? AJ is this something an average joe could/would do? Seems it would take a 3D printer or is it something else altogether? Fake coins have been around for a bit, but if people are making something where an average joe can print them now they will be everywhere.

:I am stupid: I get it now. You print it like it shows, cut along the edge lines and fold it to make two sides and the edge around. Not likely to need help spotting these in the wild. rofl

Can you put a piece of chocolate inside like those gold foil coins that are sold in candy stores?

Here are some real fake coins on ebay right now that could fool someone if they didn't open the frame.

Atleast the seller is honest, clearly marked reproduction and he even says they are 1 sided.

I have yet to see a high quality, double-sided repro coin myself.

I don't follow the coins so don't really know what all is out there, but this thread: http://forum.rebelscum.com/t1117019/ suggests there are some very good fakes out there.

Aside from the super common coins that came with last 17 figures I don't have any of the coins.

Damn, if these high end modern strike coins flood the market, it will really create a stir! Or who knows, maybe they already have!

I need to go double check all my coins now lol
