Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I'm new to coin collecting and the bug bit...

 

I found a few R2 10th year of freedom coins from a friend of mine. These coins are all in a very good condition.

 

One of the coins have an rotating die error.

 

Are there any value to the mint error or is it just a nice to have coin for my collection?

 

Regards

TitusPe

Depends on the extent of the rotated die error... how much is it, 5 degrees, 25 degrees?

Here is one example of one of these coins sold on BoB

 

Other Republic of South Africa Coins - !!!ERROR 2R 10 YEARS OF FREEDOM COIN!!!!! was sold for R200.00 on 8 Aug at 10:00 by acker in Johannesburg (ID:4584741)

 

Never mind the trader being blacklisted...

 

Some folks do collect these error coins - you may be lucky and have two or more bidding against each other for it.

Hi

I will take a picture of my 2R 10 years of freedom coin with a 170 degrees rotated die error and post it so that you can see what an amazing error it is. My favourite error is a 2000 mandela 5R coin with a 90 degrees die rotation error i will post a picture of this coin too.

 

Kind Regards

Interesting, I see some of those coins are really messed up indeed. I can understand that during the minting process that some coins move or whatever giving the errors in the mint process but how do these coins end up in the public domain as I would have thought they get melted down again for later use?

 

Sorry I am not clued up on how these things work.
