Curved clip planchet error coin from the first year of decimals.
Category: Decimal Coins
Massive Cud on the obverse edge. Quite a large piece of die has broken off causing this cud defect of raised metal.
Click image to enlarge Interesting 1966 1 cent (Canberra) elliptical clip error coin. Strong fishtailing around ABETH II and strike doubling on the ELIZ. Interestingly there’s strong fishtailing on the 1966 too, which could either be due to strong Blakesley …
A lovely little error from the Canberra Mint.
Uncirculated one cent ramstrike error from the first year of issue.
Interesting incomplete planchet error. Planchet thins out quickly near the missing region of the coin. Could be argued that it is a type of clipped planchet (perhaps an end-of-bar) but visually it’s quite different to the typical error of that type. Not often seen on decimal coins.

Lots of metal flow and fishtailing of the legends.
