Why would someone fake a coin that cost 20 bucks?

Since the US Mint is changing the ASE design explicitly to include anti-counterfeiting measures, my guess is that it is routinely done.

Profit comes from volume. But then, I still don't understand why someone would fake a 2004 Jefferson nickel: http://goccf.com/t/175236 (let's not speculate in this thread, to stay on topic here)

The reverse is the pre-2007 design.


Bingo

Coin pictured is probably real but the reverse and obverse pics are not from the same coin. This would make me suspect that you, obviously, would not receive the coin pictured.....or it could be the rare 2018/07 Silver Eagle
