Help Us Stop Counterfeiters!

Your Help Matters!

Our dedicated volunteer Task Force works tirelessly to identify counterfeiters so that law enforcement can stop them from circulating “phony money.” The impact counterfeits have on the coin and precious metal markets as well as the overall economic impact on the United States is devastating.

Thank you for your support!
