Hi, I recently found a George V coin in my house, but it actually has George V on both sides of the coin, with no value or year. I'm not sure if it's from Canada or from England or Australia etc. One side of the coin is upside down. Does anyone know what this could be? An error, or just two coins fused together?


this is on both sides.

thanks!

@gvc, first welcome to CCF. Second, typically when someone posts a coin with two heads or two tails it is a so-called Magician's coin. On the image that you have posted, I don't see a seam. Could you please post an image of the other side and the edge (as sometimes the two halves are joined there, especially on older pieces)? Also, please post the weight if you have a scale handy. Thx.

Thanks for your quick reply!
It weighs around 5g, though my scale isn't necessarily completely accurate. It does look like possibly two coins fused together but I wasn't sure: here are the pics.




thanks!

Ok yes that pic of the edge says it all. This is a neat find.

This is a poor example of a two headed coin, the seam is very visible.
