The 2001 Centenary of Federation dollar coin is well known for having a problem with the die during manufacturing which allowed one of the dies to rotate during the production run. This caused all degrees of rotation in the resulting struck coins. With this issue you can collect a clockface of rotated coin errors.

This coin is rotated 270 degrees or 9 o’clock and has been in circulation for quite some time.
