Topics: London, bogus coins, counterfeit

Scotland Yard seized a record number of counterfeit coins worth 4 million pounds ($6.3 million dollars) near London. The coins were in a freight container and three men, who weren't named, were arrested. Police are now on the hunt for the press that made the bogus coins. Scotland Yard says the find is thought to be the biggest-ever recovery of counterfeit coins in Britain.
