‚??The risk of counterfeits is another reason to consider acquiring U.S. 90 percent silver coins as the best form of silver,‚?Ě Heller said.¬†‚??Counterfeiters could try to make fakes of these, but it would be far more profitable to them to make fakes of bars and modern issues such as U.S. Silver Eagle Dollars.¬†As a consequence, there are almost no fakes of bulk U.S. 90 percent silver coins.‚?Ě
