Seeing there are a fair few diggers over here, starting a thread in Aussie Errors and Varieties will spruce up this section and generate interest from error collectors. I will start with the undisputed "king" of decimal issues...the 2000 $1.00/10 cents Mule. Someone goofed up badly when the die used for the striking of the obverse was that of a 10 cents coin. As the 10 cents is smaller than the dollar, a double rim was created. To date, no accurate figures have been obtained as to how many of this mule were minted before it was discovered. Guesstimates are around the 6,000 for a high figure and hundreds for a low figure.

Has been selling on eBay for around the AUD$500.00 mark and dealers for around the AUD$1K. An EF graded one sold for AUD$2,000+.

Have a look....

I love the mis-struck 5 cents. That's a cool-looking coin. Is there a reference book for Aussie errors?

There are many US coins with a multitude of varieties based on the fact that different die marriages were used. Do Aussie coins have similar varieties and are there books available?

Hey lim118 just go ahead and send those little old errors over here so we can see them up close. If you still need my address let me know and I will make sure Susan gets to see them as well!!!

I am not aware of any one book that deals exclusively with Aussie errors and varieties to the full extent of all discovered errors and varieties.

Our very own RG has an interesting site which he has painstaking put together that deals with some of the errors and varieties..

Check it Out
Ian Hartshorn recently printed a booklet "Australian Pocket Change-Varieties & Errors-Common,Scarce & Rare". Highly recommended for all those interested in Aussie Errors and Varieties.This booklet is not expensive,from memory about AUD$20.00.

RG/Susan....I missed the thread you started in Aussie Errors and Varieties, the moving of this entire thread to the one that is already there will not only tidy up this Forum but will enable members to read all about errors and varieties in one thread instead of two....

I've spent some time on RG's site. It's a great place and very informative. I was just curious if there were books on different series similar to the Grellman and Newcomb books for US Large Cent varieties or the Overton book on US Bust Half Dollars.

This thread can't be moved into another thread, only to another forum. The thread that you are talking about is a reference to Ian Hartshorn posting on the Australian Forum (the site run by Secret Squirrel).

Here is one that deals with predecimal varieties. Compiled by a well known numismatist who contributes on a regular basis in our monthly coin magazine. Cost of this book is around AUD$29.00.

Retails at $29.95. Only 1500 will be produced. It is a good book and from all reports from Renniks it is selling fast. I have a few in stock and they can be shipped with the new Macca's book to save a bit on postage. If you want some more comments on this book, Richard has a copy I sent him last month. I am sure he could tell you a bit about it.

I must say I am starting to become more and more interested with the "far out" errors.

Is there anyone that can be reccomended for authentic errors and a resonable price.

I did own a few errors but they were minor, I am starting to like the "far out" ones.

Image of a Kangaroo sitting on his shoulder, the tail is just behind his shoulder robes and there is a date which isn't clear on the pic but is there, a reverse 25. Also have a look around his mouth and under his chin, may see a partial image of an emu. Hope this helps.
