Anybody got any ideas ?
My understanding was that it wasn't that profitable to make counterfeit coins as opposed to bills/currency. Only small-timers would have interest in making coin fakes since the ones who generally utilize them (collectors/numismatists) are very small compared to people who utilize a currency for everyday buys-and-purchases.

The majority of people not knowing is a large part of the problem. But to see just how big of a problem it really is, all ya gotta do is look. There's certainly no shortage of information about it.
It's even been talked about a lot here on the forum.
