Hello everyone!

I recently become interested in Australian error coins and yestarday I foind this 50 cent coin. It looks very intersting. I am pretty sure that it is a minting mistake, but don`t know what type of error it is and whether this coin worth more than 50 cents =D
Does enyone here have any ideas about the type of mistake or possible prise of this coin? =)

50c coins with those marks on the edge have been around for at least several years.
Unfortunately, it is post mint damage.

Yep, PMD caused by being impacted with (probably) a 20c coin. 50c coins don't have milling around the edges, so no way it could have happened at the Mint.

Thank you very much!
I thought that minting includes the whole process of creating a coin and that PMD is when a coin is already in circulation and its owner damaged it somehow.
whereas in this case, this coin clearly was created like this and then whent in circulation (sorry for my english).
yes, this strange rib looks very much as a 20 cent coin rib. Looks like one coin sunk into another one =)

I thought actually, that it is a 50 cent coin that was struck on a 20 cent planchet. Or 20 cent was partially struck on a 50 cent coin planchet.
But like I said, I am new with all this coin error things and have a little understanding of the whole process of creating a coin. lots of things to learn )
