Australia 1950y Penny 180 Degree Upset Error
|Coin Type:||Australia Penny|
|Obverse:||George VI (T H Paget)|
|Reverse:||Kangaroo (George Kruger Gray)|
This penny looks no different any other circulated penny you might have kept over the years. But turn it over and the other side has been struck upside down! Rotated 180° one of the dies spun during the production run producing this coin not struck with the correct alignment (known as upset). Quite a scarce error coin. Supplied in an archival Saflip.
