It is illegal. It is the same as producing counterfeit one-hundred dollar bills. The legality of it depends on its intended use. If they are being made for any kind of fraudulent purpose, then it is very illegal and you could spend many years in a Federal prison. If they are made as a novelty or bullion item, and clearly show a difference from a normal coin (such as a different size or color, or with the word COPY on it), then there is no problem. Since the question asked about COUNTERFEIT nickels, it's obvious that they do not mean novelty items. As the first answer said, it is just as illegal as making your own 100 dollar bills. In fact, what may have been the largest counterfeit operation by an individual in the US, in the number of pieces if not in total amount, involved Jefferson Nickels. The story is buried somewhere in my past issues of The Numismatist or Numismatic News and IF I ever run across it I'll post the details here.
It depends what you mean by illegal. It's not illegal to make them - but it is illegal to knowingly market them as the original garments.
It is illegal to melt nickels and pennies because their metal value is higher than their face value. So if people would keep all their nickels and pennies and melt them they would make a lot of money. Plus it would cause a penny and nickel shortage.
Tickets which are conterfeit are illegal.
It is illegal to sell unauthorised copies of counterfeit games in the UK. It isn't illegal in Hong Kong so people say they live there so it isn't illegal.
I'm afraid yes, but not seriously illegal.
20 nickels make a dollar.
two nickels make one dime!
2 dollars make 40 nickels because 1$=20 nickels and 20+20=40
It takes 100 nickels to make $5.
You will need 40 nickels to make $2
200,000 nickels are needed
Yes. It is unlawful to 'own' illegal goods. Just like it is unlawful to possess counterfeit money.
A standard US roll of nickels contains 40 coins.
A million nickels make a million. A million of anything makes a million!
20 nickels in a dollar so if you have a million dollars you have 20 million nickels.
200 nickels makes $10.
69 nickels and three pennies
6 dimes, 5 dimes 2 nickels, 4 dimes 4 nickels, 3 dimes 6 nickels, 2 dimes 8 nickels, 1 dime, 10 nickels, and 12 nickels.
Egypt has never used nickels as currency. It would be counterfeit and have no monetary worth apart from curiosity value.
Please rephrase this question, post new one
