This close-up photo shows the high quality of these dies for making fake silver crown-sized coins. The die on the right is the reverse of a British silver crown dated 1899. The die on the left is the obverse of a silver Greek 5 Drachmai dated between 1833 and 1845. Although the British Crown, if genuine, would sell for a few hundred dollars, the Greek coin made by these dies would cost thousands. Of course, each coin die can strike tens of thousands of specimens, making this a very profitable operation!
