Copyright Theft of Coin Images
Perhaps we should be flattered by the number of people including dealers who continually infringe our IP (Intellectual Property) rights by using our copyright images, but we do not find it amusing, and will take legal action against any copyright thieves.

Sovereign Exchange Replica Docs (sovereignexchange.co.uk)
Sovereign Exchange Replica Docs (sovereignexchange.co.uk) of Throwley Forstal Kent are just one of the many dishonest gold & coin dealers worldwide who commit copyright theft by using our copyright images without our permission.
Sovereign Exchange Replica Docs (sovereignexchange.co.uk) have used our high quality copyright 1912 Sovereign obverse photograph as its background image on every page of their website, without our consent.
It has also used another of our sovereign photographs, repeated 9 times on its logo strip, and the Edward VII sovereign photo which features on some of its pages also looks strangely familiar to us.

Sovereign Exchange Replica Docs (sovereignexchange.co.uk) Inc About Us Page
Sovereign Exchange Replica Docs (sovereignexchange.co.uk) does not have an "About Us" page, presumably because they do not want anybody to know too much about them.

What's Wrong?

  • First, and most obvious. Sovereign Exchange Replica Docs (sovereignexchange.co.uk) Inc have taken and used our copyright images without our consent or prior knowledge. This is a clear breach of our Intellectual Property Rights. We call it image theft, and it is dishonest. It is also unprofessional.
    If the company is an important well established bullion dealer, then surely it could afford to take its own photographs, buy them from an image library, or commission them from a professional photographer. Instead it appear to have chosen to steal our pictures. Apart from exposing them as cheapskates, it is unfair competition.
  • Sovereign Exchange Replica Docs (sovereignexchange.co.uk) Inc expect their customers to trust them with their gold sovereigns, or money for them, yet they cannot be trusted not to steal images.
  • Sovereign Exchange have used what appears to be a fictitious name "Replica Docs" when registering its domain name.
  • Sovereign Exchange have falsely stated, in its domain registration, that the registrant is a non-trading UK individual.
  • Sovereign Exchange manage to spell the word "sovereign" incorrectly. As this is the only thing he states he deals in, it does not exactly inspire confidence.
  • His general level of illiteracy also bodes badly.
  • He is using at least two different eBay ID's to feed traffic to his site. This listings appear to break eBay rules in several ways.

Second Opinion
We had already spotted SovereignExchange and formed our opinion, when we received this e-mail from a concerned citizen:

Take a look here: 120579669118 and then look at his web site.
This is a huge scam - probably a variant of a Ponzi scheme - and at least one of the pictures he has stolen are yours.
I have already reported him to abuse@gandi.net
who are hosting this criminal's web site but feel free to report him for stealing images.

Austen Antiques (austenantiques) on eBay
One of the aliases apparently used by Sovereign Exchange is Austen Antiques (austenantiques) on eBay. We show one of their listings.
They also ran at least one listing under the username (eBay ID) sovereignexchange. We believe this was removed by eBay for breaching its listing rules.
