    Will this destroy public trust in gold coins, or generate negative sentiment?

    Anyone know eBay Australia's current policy on fake gold coins? Do they still support and facilitate the sale of fakes?

    Today I stumbled upon numerous examples of fakes placed on ebay by a stacker who has been burnt too many times and has decided to warn others.

    This final example is what you see described in ebay sales more and more these days....from my Grandparents stash.

    Ebay does seem like a minefield.
