    Interesting article Ed! So did I miss it or did the mint say what the security device would be? Maybe it will be like the Canadian Mint textured maple leaf and some part of the devices will be textured.

    Okay, thank you Ed! So... I guess after the coin is struck the Mint will use a laser micro engraver to apply some sort of anti-counterfeiting security mark somewhere on the reverse. That's pretty cool!

    Very cool, thanks for the link Ed!! The Chinese Morgan Dollar counterfeits have been rampant for several years. There are hundreds of thousands of them out there and they have gotten really good at them.
