He's Back on Tap: Louis The Coin Reschedules Rotary Appearance

Louis 'The Coin' Colavecchio, World's Greatest Counterfeiter,
At Litchfield-Morris Rotary March 15, 2018

LITCHFIELD, CT -- Louis 'The Coin' Colavecchio -- whose counterfeiting prowess was featured on The History Channel and the BBC -- will be the guest speaker for the Litchfield-Morris Rotary on Thursday, March 15 at noon at Forman School. This event originally was scheduled for Jan. 4, but it was postponed because of a blizzard and frigid temperatutes.

“I'm always happy to visit Connecticut to see old friends and make new ones,” Colavecchio said. “I also appreciate the work of Rotary Club members who serve others all year round. I’m just an average, hard-working guy with tenacity. Unlike many people, if I have a goal I never quit. Of course it helps if your goal is legal.”

The event is open to the public [Rotary members and guests]. Contact Chuck Conn, 860-806-1550 / cbcthree@aol.com or Andy Thibault, 860-690-0211 / tntcomm82@cs.com.

Colavecchio will be introduced by retired Connecticut State Police Detective Sergeant Jerry Longo, who arrested him. Following his presentation Colavecchio will sign copies of his memoir, "You Thought It Was More."

    My style was to take a couple hundred grand from each casino,” he said. “If I didn’t do your casino, it was an insult.”
