Hi there!

I found this coin in my grandfather's collection, is it a split planchet?

Thank you!

That is one half of a Magicians coin.

By far the nicest split planchet in my collection. I picked this up at the 2019 RNCA convention.




2.3 gram split planchet, 100% indent reverse. PCGS MS63.

I have one like yours Fenian, but also the other half. Wrote about them in a RCNA Journal article.
Nice coin.

here is a new addition to my split planchet set. As you can see, this one is a double error and I guess would be described as a clipped split planchet, split before strike.
this one is from 1981 and it weighs 1.61 grams. There is a nice Blakesley effect for the clip on the obverse and strong dovetailing of the rims at the clip. the obverse has a weak strike and the striations from the split are quite visible on the reverse.

What an interesting post, thanks rob and all who contributed. This confirms how much I still need to learn, and how limited and generic my collection is.

Very nice!! Love those coins with two different errors in a single strike!

I want to present you few of my split planchets.

The first two coins are quite classical for this type of error and show a split before strike with the conventional striation pattern and weak strike.

Coin 1


Coin 2


The third one confused me when I got this coin. I was thinking that was a split after strike. But it's still a split before strike as explained by robmck1967 in the first post of this subject. The striations are quite smooth and were flattened by a normal planchet overlapping the split one during strike. The superposition of two planchets results in a strong strike as shown on the obverse.

Coin 3


The last one is the most interesting. It shows a nice planchet lamination problem with a weight of 1.28g. The can still see a retained lamination.

Coin 4


Let me know if you notice other observations, or if I'm wrong with my descriptions.

SP67 nice coins. However I believe coin #3 split after strike as the rim would be totally flattened by second planchet. Just my two nickles worth.
