The company, which operates out of an office at 8 Slater St., drew the attention of state Attorney General Eliot Spitzer and a state Supreme Court justice two years ago when it was marketing what it called its "Freedom Tower Silver Dollar."
Spitzer sued the company, alleging the marketing was fraudulent and misleading because it claimed the Freedom Tower medallion was a "legally authorized government issue silver dollar" and a "U.S. territorial minting" from the U.S. Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands. But the commonwealth uses U.S. currency and cannot mint currency.
Spitzer also complained that the company's ads claimed the medallions were made from pure silver from silver bars recovered at Ground Zero.
Justice Joseph R. Cannizzaro agreed with Spitzer and ordered the company to stop the advertising.
After the ruling, Spitzer said his office would investigate the claim about the silver being recovered from Ground Zero. Brad Maione, a spokesman for Spitzer in Manhattan, said yesterday that the office was not able to make a determination as to where the silver came from.
I think it's more like they are immersion plating the "coins" with gold and silver, the coins themselves aren't solid.
