Hello there.
I'm extremely new to the world of coins and I was hoping if anyone could please help me with any information, advise and possible value on these 2 coins I pulled from circulation.
I also apologise for my lack of skills in photography.
My many thanks to everyone or just anyone who may help. Cheers #127867; and have a great day #128076;

Hi Moj27 and

Both coins have Post Mint Damage ( PMD) which means that the damage has occurred in circulation.

The first coin looks like it's been hit by a mower blade or similar whilst the second coin was most likely damaged by a coin rolling machine.

Unfortunately both are only worth face value ... but keep searching!

Thankyou again for any feed back. I do have a few queries though as to how the damage occurred. Please, I'm not wanting to offended anyone, I'm only wanting to learn. Thanks again

Is that reeding I see in the damage on the rim?


I'm trying to show how raised the damage is on the reverse.



I'm not sure how to explain what I see, it's as if the top surface was scraped back because I can still see the echidna .






With the $1 I thought it was an error because to physically hold it, it's indented.
It's marked with the extra ring on the obverse and that's the side that's raised. I haven't noticed any markings on the reverse to cause the indentation.





With this pic I was hoping to show the indentation



I hope I explained my self correctly and again many thanks for any info and advise.

Both coins are PMD.

The 5c has been harshly scraped with a metal implement.

The $1 is most likely to be coin rolling machine damage, very common.

Keep searching, pretty soon you'll find some errors.
