Hi, I primarily collect Canadian Coins, but I recently bought a 2 cent coin at a flea market in Niagara Falls, Canada.

It was neat and the price was good. Grade is Fine

When I got it home I noticed it had a die rotation of about 12 degrees.

Is this a common error for the type? Does it command any premium?

Members have said that Rotated Dies are more common on older coins from the 19th century. In order for a coin with a Rotated Die error to carry a premium over face value, it has to be rotated 90 degrees or more.

Yes, that's consistent with my experience collecting Canadian and British coins.

Thanks!

Tolerance is usually considered to be 15 degrees. I don't think it has to be rotated 90 degrees or more, I'd say interest starts developing at around 45 degrees.

Correct. However, as Conder101 said, only 45 degrees rotation is required for it to have collector interest.
Collector of all classic US coinage.

1865-1869 two cents are notorious for rotations. They are relatively easy to find.

Below 30%+ there is little collector interest.

But it's still neat
