Yep, copyright infringement all over the place.

Also at least a count of deceptive trading practices; giving the impression of a graded coin on cursory examination.

But there is a market for these.

It helps us by decreasing the number of gradable coins; today’s bullion, tomorrow’s numismatic?  N34

I don't think coin designs are copyrighted so they can't be infringed. There are counterfeiting laws, though. Also, in China it is forbidden to copy PRC coin designs on medals. In this photo, if the basic coin beneath the design is genuine then this is just decoration, haha,

Best wishes,

Do you know if such “decorated coins” are sold within China? Thanks.
