2015 Netball 20 Cent Counterstamp Variations


Australia 2015 20 Cent S Counterstamp

Australia 2015 20 Cent S Counterstamp

We got 10 of the 2015 20c Netball S counterstamps a couple of days ago. The quality of the coins isn’t the best that we’ve seen from the RAM in recent times but we’ve had a closer look at the coins and there’s some interesting little variations on the coins.

All of the coins showed an unusual lustre break a the bottom of the Queen’s neck on the obverse suggesting the surface texture of the die was different in that area. We’ve spoken to another collector who has some of these coins and his coins exhibit the same characteristic. 8 of the 10 coins had a strike through on the rim near the Queen’s neck. It must have been a small bit of swarf or wire and it’s interesting to see how it moved around from strike to strike. Also, one coin had a oil strike through on the obverse rim around the II of ELIZABETH II.
