Following a request from the U.S. Secret Service, eBay has begun enforcing a ban on the sale of all Liberty Dollar medallions. When contacted by Coin World, eBay spokesman Ryan Moore said: “The listing for Norfed Liberty Dollars have been removed as they have been deemed counterfeit by the United States Secret Service. Counterfeits are illegal and not welcome on any of eBay’s sites.”
The following emails were sent to eBay users whose listings for Liberty Dollars were cancelled:
“The United States Secret Service has requested the removal of all Norfed Liberty dollars on the eBay site as counterfeits. … Please do not relist this item(s). We appreciate that you chose to list this coin on our site and understand there was no ill intent on your part. Your listing fees have been credited to your account.”
Created in 1998 by Bernard von NotHaus, the Liberty Dollar was introduced as an alternative form of money for those who do not want to use Federal Reserve Notes.
