Australia 50 Cent 1976 Clamshell Split Planchet Error
|Coin Type:||Australia 50 Cent|
|Mint:||Royal Australian Mint|
|Obverse:||Elizabeth II (Arnold Machin)|
|Reverse:||Coat of Arms (Stuart Devlin)|
1976 50 cent with a mostly split planchet but the two halves have not detached. Planchet split around three quarters of the coin’s rim forming the characteristic ‘clamshell’ shape that gives this type of error it’s name. Not seen often on 50 cent coins.
