A class action lawsuit has been filed against National Collector's Mint Inc., the manufacturer of the $1 Freedom Coin. The company claims that the coins are made of .999 pure silver recovered from a vault at ground zero, and that they are the first "legally authorized government issue silver dollar . . . to commemorate the World Trade Center and the new Freedom Tower." The suit was filed on behalf of the more than 10,000 people may have purchased the coin, which is being sold for $23.45.
The suit alleges fraud, claiming that the coin is a "shameless attempt to profit from a national tragedy though an advertising campaign," and that the coin is not legal tender and was not issued by the U.S. Mint. The suit further claims that the coins are not pure silver, that they are not the equivalent of $1 in U.S. currency and that they were never authorized by the U.S. government. Additionally, the suit claims that the company failed its "guarantee" that if the customer is not satisfied, the coin can be returned for a full refund "no questions asked."
