Another Double Struck $2 Coin Appears

September 19, 2010

You may or may not remember us reproducing the article we wrote for the Australian Coin and Banknote Magazine about a number of double struck $2 coins that had appeared on the market over the preceding 7 or 8 months. At the time of writing that article 5 of these coins (3 2008's and 2 2009's) had appeared on the market, one via a room auction, one via a coin dealers mail catalogue, and three on eBay. Well interestingly another one has appeared on eBay in the last 24 hours. This is another 2009 coin and appears to be of a similar grade to the other 5, it's got two visible dates (which is more desirable than just one date). The second strike is rotated about 90% from the first and offset by about 40-50% to the first. It will be interesting to see what price it realises and how it compares with the others.
