ARE ISIS COINS BEING MINTED IN CHINA?

Pabitra Saha forwarded these images of coins matching some of the designs put out in November by the terrorist group ISIS. He writes: "These were offered by a Chinese dealer. He did not disclose other details." Has anyone else seen or heard of these? Are they just knockoffs trading on the earlier publicity? -Editor

Here's a previously-published image of the proposed ISIS coin designs. The third coin pictured above is not gold as indicated in the design photo. These smell fishy. It they were actual coins made by or for ISIS, surely they would be publicizing them on their own - they haven't been shy about social media in the past. Interesting development regardless. -Editor
