Australia 1980 2 Cent Straight Partial Collar Error Choice Uncirculated


Coin Type:Australia 2 Cent
Grade:CH UNC
Mint:Royal Australian MInt
Obverse:Queen Elizabeth II (Arnold Machin)
Reverse:Frilled Lizard (Stuart Devlin)

Partial collar error where the collar was straight (and not tilted) when the coin was struck. This meant that the reverse was struck accurately with the collar in place but the obverse was struck out of collar and very pancake-like. The rim is often termed a railroad rim.

This 1980 2 cent is choice uncirculated, red-brown with interesting toning.
