A partial collar error with interesting Royal Mint letter of explanation.
5p coin struck on an underweight blank. The planchet split in half parrallel to the face of the coin prior to the coin being minted, tell-tale metal striations can be seen on the obverse. The coin was struck after the split occurred. Weight is 2.76g, almost exactly half of the 5.65g a complete coin should weigh. It shows extreme strike weakness due to the very thin planchet.
A straight partial collar where the planchet was not engaged all the way in the press when the coin was struck. This has resulted in a lip around the entire edge with missing milling so in fact the coin has a wider diameter on the reverse. This coin found only in proof sets.
Three errors! Broadstruck British 2 New Pence with 2 clips on the planchet.
Struck without the coin collar in place.
Milled edge blank planchet.
