1975 2 cent struck on incorrect planchet. Planchet is a bronze 3.67g example, a full 1.5 grams lighter than the correct weight of a 2 cent. The weight does not correspond to any coinage the Royal Australian Mint manufactured in the 1974-1975 or 1975-1976 annual reports. Wrong planchet errors in the Australian decimal series are incredibly hard to come by.
