This guy did exactly that:

He forged casino slot tokens, then proceeded to play the machines and take the payouts.

The casinos picked up on it because they have a finite supply of tokens, say, 10,000 tokens. During a count they discovered they had more tokens.

Part of the technique he used was some kind of machine that could, essentially, create a die from a coin using some electrical method. Obviously, he did more than just that, as he had to match weight and other details. But the duplicating machine was interesting.

Then, of course, there's the continue struggle countries here on Earth have with high level counterfeit operations against their currency.
