The Coin Smith

I ran across a site called Coinsmith, where a man by the name of Charles Larson has created replicas of ancient Greek coins as well as more modern (but still old) Mormon coinage. The site is rather sparse so I wasn’t able to figure out how to purchase a replica or even how much one costs assuming they’re for sale. The FAQ says it’s coming soon, but it’s been over a year since the page was modified so it may be a while.

He’s also written a few books about Numismatic Forgery and making coins in general and it looks to be a fascinating look at how early coins were made.

I hope he adds more information to the web site eventually, and maybe he’ll undertake a few more replica projects, perhaps an 1804 Silver Dollar?
