Hi guys I recently joined the forum after having my interest in coins sparked by a friend. Since then I've taken rather careful note of most if not all coins that's pass through my possession. I recently found an Australian $2 dollar coin with a peculiar marking on it, ...its rather small and I asked my housemates if they had a few $2 coins I could compare it to, with the result of none of the other coins having this marking. Unfortunately my camera wont focus on such a small object so I've taken a larger shot and then sketched in pencil a zoomed diagram of what I'm seeing...it appears to be overlapping H's
haha cheers guys...is this a particularly rare find...im guessing there was quite a few of these printed and are still in circulation? even if its not worth anything more then $2 its interesting to know :) o and the coin is from 1988
They are not rare as all of those early $2 have it and there is tonnes and tonnes of them (especially 1988). 1988 is the largest mintage $2 by more than 3 times. Approx 160M compared to next highest 2008 with 47M. If you find them interesting keep one in you collection.
