Hello,

I was just entering some of my coins in the database and noticed that this particular year i have in Medal Allignment. It is listed in Coin Allignment. I was wondering is this is an error or if others have this coin in Medal Allignment as well.

Hi,

next time copy the numista link into your message, it makes so much easier for the rest of the world to go straight to the coin in question. Thanks.

​Everybody has those coins in medal orientation (as indicated here:

Sorry Ole, awaidner11 is talking about the 1901H coin and that's another type (Victoria): https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces5657.html and there the coin page says "coin alignment".

Hi,

yes, that shows why the link to the coin is IMPORTANT, doesn't it;)

I have the 1899 1 cent coin as well and that particular year i have in coin alignment, so i dont question numista having the wrong information per the allignment information. I was just more curious on what others opinions would be and if they potentially had the same coin to verify that this is common or a different variety.

​Here all my km4.n coins. Righmost column = Orientation, where "m" is medal and "c" is coin.

After seeing your data im guessing that this is just a Variation or even could be just medal Allignment for a few different years. Thanks Ole.

​Yes indeed. It's so easy when members provide the link when they have questions about a certain coin. Unfortunately, too often it doesn't happen.

But back to topic, here are my KM# 4's:
1863 medal
1866 medal
1879 coin
1900H medal
1901H medal
and these are very consisting with Ole's findings, so I guess the "coin alignment" on the coin page is confusing. Some dates have medal alignment, some dates have coin alignment. I don't know yet if there are any dates with both coin and medal alignment.

Spot on the point. If it's not the same year, for me it's of no importance.
