I got this back in change a while ago.
It looks to be peeling apart and cracking.
I am not looking to sell it as it is one of my favorites but any idea if it would be worth something to someone else?

if only it was in better condition....

Sorry if the photos are not too good, I only just got this macro lens and I need a better flash.
thanks for your time.

It is a lamination error, an internal flaw/weakness in the alloy. It is not uncommon and can be seen on numerous world coins. Common coins might see a small premium from someone looking for a lamination but they tend to devalue a key or semi-key coin as a lamination detracts from the eye appeal of a coin, especially an expensive one.

wow more than I thought it would.
I have seen overseas coins like that, but I dont hear of it much in Aussie coinage.
I was expecting $2 to $3.
Thanks for the input!!

She is tucked away in my album safe and sound!
