All counterfeits are fakes, but not all fakes are counterfeits. As tdol, a blogger says, ‘counterfeit’ means you are trying to deceive someone, while ‘fake’ just means it’s not the real thing, and doesn’t imply anything about any intention.So counterfeit money is fake money which is also intended to look so much like the real thing, that people can actually use it to buy things.
It’s also possible to have fake money that is not counterfeit. Such a thing is used, for example, in the film business. Although the fake money looks on screen like the real thing, it is not intended to be used to buy things in real life and would be recognized as a fake by anyone who looked at it.
