Copper 10c

Recommended Posts


Hi all,


I got a very red coloured 10 cent (2012 issue) in my change the other day and I was wondering if I some of the wiser folks can assist.


The coin is either copper plated or has a high copper content in the plated bronze. I do recall something about a change in the metal content or size of our coins but some confirmation would be better.

The SA Mint website states that the coin should be Bronze-plated Steel.


Anyways if anyone can comment on this I would appreciates it as I am quite curious as to why I have a copper 10c.
