'One in a Million' Unexpected Treasures have escaped the Mint but will never be found in your change Part 1

September 10, 2011

The Royal Australian Mint recently showcased an exhibition of error coins in Melbourne. The display was titled "One in a Million -Unexpected Treasures from the Royal Australian Mint". Thanks to 'SJS', our Melbourne correspondent and Chris Zark we're proud to be able to bring you some images of these stunning error coins.

The Die Cap error is sometimes called a bottletop. This stunning example is of the 2000 subscription silver proof Proclamation penny.
