I watched a video on PJs coin capers and he showed a 5 cent coin with the same double rim as this 10 cent coin. He didn't know what was going on and neither do I.

Any info regarding this error/variety/pmd would be appreciated.



p.s first time posting with an image, be gentle ;)

im not sure but I think that is might be different in striking pressures or something minor with the observer die, sort of happens on the 1983 5 cents as well. Note not rare or collectable.

I think it is collectable, although doesn't add much extra value. It is a genuine mint error but not really rare and probably minor to some people. Just one of those unexplained issues that has a lot of theories. The 2008 5 cent is probably the best example of this kind of issue. I have not seen it on a 1999 10 cent though. The R of Australia is particularly interesting.

Thanks for the reply ryurazu and airgem.

I really like this coin regardless of the value it has or doesn't have :)

What do you find interesting about the R airgem? The shape of the back of the R?

airgem, saying that it might be a Die Deterioration, that why there is a lumpy bits below the R in Australia.

Looks like a bit of doubling - not sure about the double rim though.
