Australia 1974 1 Cent on Faulty Planchet Error


Coin Type:Australia 1 Cent
Mint:Royal Australian Mint
Obverse:Queen Elizabeth II (Arnold Machin)
Reverse:Possum (Stuart Devlin)

Very interesting 1974 1 cent struck on a faulty or incomplete blank. Obverse shows a rim fault at around 8 o’clock and a significant strike through on the rim opposite. Whatever the coin was struck through has fallen away leaving a large unstruck portion with significant strike weakness on the reverse side. Almost full red and uncirculated, an unusual error that we’ve not seen before.
