Modern-Day Legislation:Why Coin Collectors Should Care About HR 5977

      eBay has also shown its support for the coin collecting community and for the Professional Numismatists Guild (PNG) by revising its policy in February 2012 to ban the sale or auction of any replica coin, including US, foreign, and other historic coins. eBay is also showing its commitment by taking steps to meet coin industry standards and ensuring that it remains an effective online resource for the coin marketing and collecting community.

      Passing HR 5977 will put the power back in the hands of the collector, dealer, and grading service, as they work with the Justice Department to bring stronger and more effective legal action against the counterfeiters and help obtain justice for those harmed. If you would like to show your support, contact your member of Congress and let him or her know that their support of this revenue-neutral bill is important to you and will greatly benefit the integrity and future of one of the world's oldest and most beloved hobbies.
