This photo depicts a worker in a Chinese counterfeiting ring in the process of feeding a planchet (coin blank) into the press to strike a fake silver coin. The counterfeiting ring whose equipment and products are shown in this photo gallery is a large, well-funded organization that employs numerous people in a factory-like environment. In addition to striking fake coins, they manufacture a variety of fake Chinese antique art and antiquities items.
