CAMDEN, NEW JERSEY -  A New Jersey man who pleaded guilty in June 2018 to federal charges of importing and selling counterfeit United States coins and precious metals bars that, if genuine, would be worth more than $46 million was sentenced to 10-and-a-half years in prison.

The sentence handed down Jan. 28 by U.S. District Court Judge Robert B. Kugler in Camden, New Jersey, also requires the man, Jonathan A. Kirschner, 35, also known as Jonathan Kratcher and Jonathan Rosario, of Moorestown, to pay restitution of $14,600 and forfeit the counterfeit coins and bars. Kirchner had also pleaded guilty to posing as an agent of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, while selling the counterfeit items.
