The Gold and Silver Mine: Pending law puts teeth into enforcement, prosecution of coin counterfeiters The Gold and Silver Mine: Pending law puts teeth into enforcement, prosecution of coin counterfeiters I have written several times about the problem within the coin collecting hobby caused by counterfeits originating from China. These counterfeits range from crude fakes that would fool almost no one to highly sophisticated copies that take professionals to identify. In fact I just read a crime sheet this morning where an individual is being sought because he is alleged to be frequenting coin and pawn shops selling counterfeit rare and bullion coins. Many of them are actually in the plastic containers issued by one of the major grading services, the container being counterfeited also.

Mayor Phil Guenther Mayor Phil Guenther As 2014 comes to an end, I am hopeful that the coming year will be a year of positive change for Brigantine.

Our history as a community demonstrates our resilience in the face of adversity; therefore, I am optimistic that in 2015 we will move our city forward.
