2016 20 Cent Struck on a Dollar Planchet
Wrong planchet coin errors are not always dramatic to look at but they are when they are struck on the wrong composition planchet. This 20 cent doesn’t appear to have been struck on a cupro-nickel planchet but an aluminium bronze planchet which the seller claims is for a one dollar coin so presumably weighs 9 grams and not 11.31 grams as a 20c should.

2000 20 Cent Struck on 10 Cent Planchet PCGS MS64
A stunning lustrous choice uncirculated example of a wrong planchet error. A ten cent coin blank was accidently struck with 20 cent dies and the resulting underweight 20c has been graded by PCGS as MS64 (83914942). A superb error coin with the added assurance of the PCGS slab. This should give buyers confidence to bid on this error coin for sale.

1994 10 Cent Struck on 5 cent Planchet PCGS MS65
Here we have another wrong planchet similar to the above example, this time an earlier date with the Raphael Maklouf portrait of QEII. This coin graded MS65 (83914941) at PCGS the equivalent to gem uncirculated for those who use adjectival grading terms. If you like a top grade error coin then you should have confidence in this seller.

2016 Decimal Changeover Anniversary Dollar Die Cap Pair
I am amazed at how this error pair left the Mint. What we have in this listing is a matched pair of die caps from the top and bottom dies (hammer and anvil) each planchet having stuck to the dies and struck multiple brockage coins before falling away (at the same time) or the press being stopped and the die caps being forceably removed. In this case the hammer (top) die had to be the more bottle cap shaped obverse and the anvil (bottom) die the reverse 5 kangaroo design. The opposing sides of each coin is flattened (later state) indicating it struck many brockage coins. This commemorative design is a low mintage issue and this error pair so outstanding I might well have to sell a kidney to buy it.

2014 20 Cent Off-Centre Double Strike
Second chance offering with its original buyer failing to complete the transaction, this means it’s back to the bidding with this double struck platypus 20 cent in a new auction. High grade and two visible dates this is a highly desirable error coin. In the case of this double struck coin, the second strike is about 85% off centre.

1974 10 Cent Flipover Double Strike-Indent PCGS MS64
As the seller suggests it is “rare to find” this error, it would certainly be rejected by the mint roll machine! A very nice example for sale on the ‘bay graded by PCGS as MS64 (30336010). Take a look at our flipover double strike article to see another example (the same date too), read about how this occurred and see what the matching coin of this kind of error pair would look like.
