Forgery is the act of making counterfeit currency. Because there are so many coins in circulation, it is nigh impossible to track forgeries to their source. Jinks, as suspect coins are called, are a widespread problem that the Empire lacks the means to adequately address. With the Empire's inability to address the growing counterfeiting problems, many talented metalsmiths abandon or supplement their legitimate business by minting their own coins. Over time, a metalsmith can gather enough raw materials to stamp his own coins by shaving the edges of a legitimate coin. Furthermore, counterfeiters add lesser metals, reducing the weight and actual value of these coins.[1a]
