Haha, you certainly have an eye for detail, Zac!  :)
I once read on Numista that there exist several varieties on the edge of the UK 10p from 1992. Only I can't figure out what they all mean!  :.

Could you explain me those varieties with pictures?

  1) Is it an error because it says CAROVLS instead of CAROLVS ?!
2) Or in DEI GRA the A is an upside-down V ?! They must have used letter A as there is one in CAROLVS
Maybe both of those two lines are the errors.  (8

I have a british penny with similar metal debris.

Above the word 'one' are two drops of metal and in the field above the harp and beneath the claw of the Welsh dragon there are some more specks of metal that shouldn't be there.

But such marriages who collects.
Semicircular notch on the coin on its edge directed toward the center. Marriage is obtained in step cutting circles from under the sheet blank, as a result of improper feeding blanks.

and we can see on this coin second photo closeup another marriage
Lack of metal edging on the coin. Marriage is also obtained in preparation for future coins and blanks occurs due to improper operation of the machine.

I was just curious to find out - was this error made during mintage process, or under some other circumstances (like physical damage etc.)

Any thoughts?

Not sure, but I think it's either a weak strike or it's just a coin that is heavily used in circulation.

It's a struck-through-grease error, and a fairly significant one too!

  I do find the occasional rotation error on UK 50 Pence, but they are usually rotated slightly to the right, and one side mostly. This is both sides and they are to the left. I do wonder whether I am a weirdo though, as how come I noticed this in pocket change, whereas it has already been circulating 16 years.  (8



 Oh, and all previous errors are just rotation, but this also has a scuff mark (see yellow arrow) in all angles. Not sure what caused it but must be something to do with the error.

Hey daryl, I'm not that into error coins really, I prefer to have a good strike I just saw it and found it amusing :)  unless it were a serious error like a Mis-matched die or a highly worn that's cracked, but it would still look for a perfect one !

First of all, thanks for the 2 coins! :)
About that 20 Lire, I think it has been struck on some sort of dirty planchet. I've got a bunch of Greek coins with a similar thing (they don't have a complete smooth surface, some small bubbles or something like that appear on the coin), only this 20 lire is a lot more worse than the coins I have. I'll try to upload some pics of my Greek coins later. Hope this helps you.

So I guess this coin has the same problem as ALLRED's, only a bit less exaggerated.

Also, here's a picture of a Belgium 5ct with extra pieces of metal on it, found it a week ago in my change.
Not really that rare, because Belgium eurocoins tend to have more of these errors than eurocoins of other countries. Still a find pocket change find though! :)

Whats up with this Austria 1980 1 schilling km#2886. First i thought it was something on it. Tryed cleaning with alcohol. Would not come off Soak it for 2 hours didnt come off.I did the big sin. I used metal cleaner. It still there. But parts of the metal above the coin looks like the same metal of the coin. What do you think.

  thank you daryl

I have a Russian 15 Kopek coin with both sides the same, and this American 1 cent that was double struck with another coin. The interesting bit is that the American coin was struck second.  The planchet is the 1 cent size.  Any one know what the second coin is?

Maybe someone was trying it to looks like Sacagawea Dollar over-strike. Does not look like Mint made error though.

I had a look, and I could not find any coin that resembles the second one.  Definitely not a Sacagawea Dollar as is suggested.  Perhaps it is a token of some kind.

It seems like a metal fault to me, like the metal is splitting.  Difficult to tell from the pictures.

I have a mixture of foreign coins, and decided to try to sell most of them. While going through them, I found this 1975 French franc. I think it's an error as none of my other francs have this groove under the letters on the front of the coin. Still have more coins to check! :)

 I have the same markings on my 1961 (also 1 Franc) coin ...

 I think caused by a faulty coin-counting machine (different machine, different circle size).

Welcome to the site.  :)

P.S. While here may as well add this triple error coin (UK 50 Pence 2013) I got in change the other day - a doubling of the edge, the portrait, and the lettering ...

These are just 5 out of the many error coins I have. The first one is of a 1910 Australian threepence with a die crack across the date. The second one is of an Australian 50 cent coin with a cud error under the Queens nose. The third one is of an Australian 1964 penny with a large die crack. The forth one is of an Australian 1949 penny with a large lamination peal on its reverse and a smaller on on its obverse. The fifth one is of a 20 cent coin from 2014 with the 'wave gap variety' the end of the wave is supposed to touch the head of the platypus.

Sorry about the poor picture but it was dark when I got home and my lights are terrible for photo's.
I got this 2014 50p coin today, smashed FIFTY.
I can only think that the hammer die had some big chunks of cud on it which basically destroyed the lettering during the strike and the area around the FIFTY.

There is ( machine ? ) doubling to the word PENCE and an overall weak strike. The obverse has a weak strike on the date.
I deny nothing but doubt everything, opinions are made to be changed, how else is the truth to be gotten at.

2. Half revers in obverse, and half obverse in reverse



3. Double "bird" under horseman



4. Double reverse, and double obverse



5. This one could be from "private" mint - in date 6 conected with 4 / and wrong letter in CAS.REX --> COA.REX

Obverse Brockage: Brockage errors occur when a minted coin sticks to one of the dies. This coin was created by striking a blank between the obverse die and the obverse side of the previous coin (stuck on the reverse die).

@Donkey, that's just a weak strike. It happens when a die is worn out and then you get less details on the struck coin.

You can keep it of course, but this error doesn't really increase the value of the coin.

Little dents around the rim (very noticeable on Obv) match to the lettering incused into the edge, "CANADA".

Found another this week (not this blatant) so I'm guessing the RCM had some issues with this one.

That happens to the coins at either end of a paper roll, where the machine
twists the end shut, and if faulty the machine also puts twist marks on the coin. I think.

​If it was struck on the wrong planchet, then some of the details would probably be missing, which is not the case. But you're close.

If it is raised up (see my UK example below) it is a die crack;
if it goes in to the coin it is a scratch.

Yes, coins with small additional details qualify as error coins.

But I see nothing unusual on the top right coin.

Interestingly enough, some time ago I got an Austrian eurocent with the same additional detail (see my post above in this thread, 23-Nov-2015)

Quote: "geraltttt82"​Few from Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth coins (szelągi):


​1. error in date - not 1665 but 16 665



​2. Half revers in obverse, and half obverse in reverse



​3. Double "bird" under horseman



​4. Double reverse, and double obverse



​5. This one could be from "private" mint - in date 6 conected with 4 / and wrong letter in CAS.REX --> COA.REX



​I have same as your's nr. 2
What's with the value of this one?
Is it common error?

A nice error coin of Belgium

A first planchet was stuck between the dies. The planchet was strucked.
Then this coin was made with the incuse traces of the first planchet.



I hope you enjoy watching it ;)

Die crack on a French token, I had access to a friends coin also and it is interesting to see the crack progressing.

Quote: "Dr4gonkiller96"​this is one of the first minted 1966 Australian 10 cent coins from Canberra (not London) and im confused if the Milled edges are just gone or were never added as its the same as a normal 10 cent coin with diameter and thickness. (note its also the exact same all around so if i turn it, it would be identical). need help on this one.

​this next coin is fairly new 2005 $1 Australian Coin but is slightly mistruck at opposite sides of the obverse and reverse sides of the coin.
​The missing milled edge on the 10 cent coin is not an error but caused by wear to the coin. It's quite common to find the older coins like this.

The slight missalingment on your 1 dollar coin is too small and common to be considered an error. Personally I do call it an error but the majority Australian coin collectors will disagree.

I haven't been a coin collector for long (about 10 months now), and I can't fully understand why anyone would want to own a flawed coin. I collect for the beauty of the coins and fail to see any good reason to add an eyesore to a collection of otherwise beautiful coins.

Error coins, in my view, are not just coins that have die or metal faults, that make them different from the normal issues.
Other errors also exist.
My favourite coin, which I own, is Isle of Man 50pence KM#57a. The error is where obverse and reverse dies from two different coins have come together to form another coin.
On this particular coin, is does not state that it is from the IOM, due to this die error.
I have never come across another coin of this KM#
I'm just a collector of coins, not a slave to it, unless I am in a coin shop.

​I collect error coins for a number of reasons. It costs me nothing to sit around and look for errors. And pocket change is all I need to do it. And, all and all, they are rare. In some mints, errors are common, I avoid them.
Some of the U.S. error coins can have substantial value. A Wi. state quarter with 3 leaves on the cornstalk can fetch up to $100.00. I got a 1942 D/S mintmark error quarter in a silver lot. And a DDO (Double Die Obverse)Buffalo nickel in a coin roll.
That is how I got hooked on error coins.
Countries that have the best minting processes are the coin errors I look for.
Error coins to me, are a great way to mess around with coins, without spending money or waiting on the mail.

As you can see on the right, there was a flake of metal from the planchette there’s even a folded piece underneath the three that got mashed back into the coin. What’s this type of error called? The coin and was struck after this was in the planchette. Please give me an idea of the value, I would like to swap it for something else, I don’t collect error coins. Thanks!
Taking a break from swapping for a while, but still interested in pre 1799 Spanish coins, I will make time for that!

I have a lot of these. Probably extremely usual. One even has metal in all the 9s! Also, I have a 1 penni 1974 (Finland) missing the reverse side of the coin. Also another darker coloured 1 penni that is about 1mm larger than the others, can't remember which year. Also some other euro coins with small errors and a broken German 1 euro coin that I accidentally just broke. But the last one is not an error, probably just a damaged coin.

I could attribute this mess to PMD but I think I also see signs of the reverse on the obverse.
there are signs of something I do not recognize too.
The obvious part is a 1 Pfenning 1819 FR of GS Duchy of Brunswick -Wolfenbuttel.

​Lamination - a flaw whereby a fragment of metal has peeled off the coin's surface. This defect occurs when a foreign substance, such as gas oxides or dirt, becomes trapped in the strip as it is rolled out to the proper thickness. Lamination flaws may be missing or still attached to the coin's surface.

I believe that it is really hard to place a "value" on irregularities. It really all depends on what the collector is willing to pay for it. Someone may be willing to pay through the nose for "uniqueness". Then again some may find the imperfection less than desirable.
A lot of it has to do with how interesting the lamination is. Many people collect these.
Those who believe they can do something and those who believe they can't are both right.

Can anyone tell me if this a double die? It is a 1999 D Connecticut Quarter. If you zoom onto the nose it appears to be doubled if not tripled. There is also an imprint to the right of LIBERTY. I am very new to collecting but believe I have found a true error. Any reply would be appreciated.

I don't specifically collect error coins, but sometimes I spot an interesting detail (usually a long time after I first buy the coin) and I don't believe I've ever posted here before, so here goes:


1899 Bolivia 50 Centimos; Die crack on the eagle that starts in the end of the word "REPUBLICA", then progresses across eagle's breast and into the beginning of "BOLIVIANA". (pointed out to me by Jasanche :`)


1889 Brazil 2000 Réis - Pedro II; serious flaw between the first and second "0"s of "2000 REIS". (My entry in MPCC South America, which was narrowly beaten in the quarterfinals)

I've also a few more rotation/orientation errors and offstruck coins, but nothing in there extreme enough to be worth posting.

Another South American error; this Bolivia 5 Centavos is offstruck more than most other coins made before the 20th century with dodgy equipment, so I thought it worth posting.

This summer, I collected a bunch of the 2016-type Russian roubles from circulation, which I didn't have yet. Closely examining them at home, I found that 2 out of 14 show some kind of error. So far for quality at the Moscow Mint?

10 Roubles 2017 die rotation:


5 Roubles 2017 with what I think is a lamination error:

I recently got this one in a swap, with obvious doubling of the word Centesimos:


Then I noticed that the coin on the Numista page has the same issue.

Would this be a double strike or a doubled die?

My favorite error coins that I got out of circulation during visits to the countries they come from:


Bugaria, 1974 50 stotinki, the 108 degree rotation error makes the communist star point down compared to the position it should have, when comparing that side to the 50 stotinki side.


India, 1988 20 paise. First of all, this coin has a human error (the Hyderabad mintmark below 1988 is upside-down). Next there seems to be a die error due to the die getting old (part of the ridge on the edge left from India in Hindi is missing, which is common for Indian coins). Then there is a crack at the bottom of the coin due to the aluminium not being able to handle the pressure of the minting machine (quite common for Indian coins). Finally there is a chunk of aluminium on top, sharp enough to hurt yourself.


India, 2 1998 2 Rupee coins covered with machine oil. These coins came out of a plastic bag of newly minted 2 Rupee coins. A lady from the canteen where I was doing some voluntary work got them straight from the bank. From another oil covered coin I could easily wipe off the oil. The top coin has a few islands below the most southern tip India that don't exist and a thin high date, also the Lakshadweep Islands are huge in size compared to the real size of these islands. On the bottom coin these islands are barely visible, just as the Hyderabad mintmark and the bottom of the 2. The date is wide and low. Both coins are supposed to be 11-sided, but mostly they are round.


Poland, a 1949 10 groszy coin with a giant blister. It seems the poor coin is suffering the plague (Black Death), after taking the final picture, looking at it on my laptop, I noticed the black crumbs of aluminium oxide that came out of the crack in the edge of the coin.

That Polish coin looks nasty... I remember I once had a zinc 1942 Tunisian 10 centimes literally snap into two pieces in my hands like a biscuit, crumbs and all. 8~

Anyway, haven't posted here in ages, so here's another couple of nice die cracks (around the date and bottom letering) I've noticed (while posting this same coin to the peso thread):
