In March 2009 sellers in Canada began offering several Amero coins on eBay that are copyright infringements (copies) of original Amero designs. The sellers used Daniel Carr's picture of one of his original (genuine) coins for a few of their eBay auctions.
Some of the fakes use his 2007 obverse and reverse. Others use his 2007 reverse paired with a buffalo on the other side, and are dated 2010 or 2012. Some show a Pyramid substituted for the Eagle. And yet another fake is a copy of his 2008 obverse and reverse, but with a 2012 date.
The fakes appear in various metals, including copper, silver-plated, and gold-plated.
