I have this Australian 2004 $2 coin that looks to be a error, can anybody shed any light on it? Is it of any value other than $2? The reverse is undamaged but the face is missing a star, half his face and some of the 2

There is no way anyone can tell anything from that photo.
Please post a CLEAR photo of both sides and then someone
will be able to answer your question.

Without clear photos, I am just going to say it is a damaged coin.

Some one probably testing grinder, then left in the ground and then finally spent

Actually, for a $2 coin, my initial assumption on seeing or hearing about an "odd-looking" coin is, "It's probably a counterfeit", rather than "It's a mint error" or "It's a damaged coin".

Try slightly varying the angle at which you take the photo to avoid glare on the coin. Also avoid using flash or artificial lighting but instead use natural lighting.

Nice close ups Woody79 but what is still needed are clear photos of the full coin, showing both sides, that highlight the detail of the coin's design ... like the ones that you posted in your other thread re the 1985 $1 ... but properly orientated.

The easiest method is to scan the Coin,Scanner/Printers cost A$30+and are usually up to 600/1200 DPI these days.
Photo's are hard to get right when Coins are the subject,you need a pro. camera,pro lighting and plenty of experience/skill.
My Thoughts after years of trying to get acceptable Photo's of Stamps/Coins.
