Forgeries of the Decimal One Pound


Forged pound obverse

Obverses of 1986 pound coins
Brass forgery on the left, genuine coin on the right.

Note the weak strike, uneven edge beads, and curved field of the forgery

Forged pound reverse

Reverses of 1986 pound coins
Brass forgery on the left, genuine coin on the right.

Note the weak strike, uneven edge beads and the curved field as for the obverse

2007 Forged pound

A very crude forgery of the 2007 pound coin
The coarse lettering and features of the Queen are a giveaway, as is the word COPY behind the Queen's neck.

Edges of forged pound coins

Edges of Forged One Pound coins
The edges are usually the real giveaway, and are strikingly odd when compared with a lot of other pound coins.
