Australia 1950 Error Penny PCGS AU50

  • Flip over double strike
  • 15% off centre strike

Likely Perth Mint but cannot be confirmed. Not only a flipover double strike, but an offstrike out of collar on the 2nd strike. Very exotic and an extremely rare example of such a pre-decimal error.

If you are going to buy a single example of a pre-decimal error, this Australia 1950 Error Penny graded PCGS AU50 is a real head turner. Note the imprint of the King’s portrait in the kangaroo.

This coin has also been expertly restored and preserved with verdichem, also available in-store.

The product image shows the coin’s dark chocolate patina, not faithfully reproduced by PCGS.
