NGC has also launched a comprehensive Counterfeit Coins Detection portal, which can be accessed for free at NGCcoin.com/counterfeit. It features the 50 US coins, 25 Chinese coins and 25 world collector coins most commonly targeted by counterfeiters, according to submissions to NGC. Each of these coins has on its own page comprehensive information including high-resolution images, the type of counterfeits typically seen, detection tips and other helpful details.

The NGC Counterfeit Detection portal is designed to help collectors, dealers and others identify counterfeit and altered coins before they purchase them, stopping these spurious coins from entering the numismatic marketplace.
