That went through my mind
But how does the kangaroo get to the background in reverse with the reverse date?

Because on the 39 coin,the date and roo is raised above the surface and when you squeeze the two coins together it makes a mirror image. I hope that makes sense.

Acknowledged!
But how does that happen without damage
To the wording off the 1927 coin?
Specifically the wording "one half penny"?

We typically see these every week. Two coins and a vice.
