Hi everybody,
I came across to this 1954 Australia proof coin which shows impression of reverse on obverse and vice versa and would like to share this coin with you and have your opinions.
With best regards,
Habib.

It's called die clash.
The dies strike each other when there is no coin in the chamber, each leaving an impression on the opposite die.
"Dipping" is not considered cleaning...

Many 1954 sixpences are proof like and are sometimes confused with proofs.
This one is definitely not a proof.
Nice die clash though.

Ah makes sense - I thought a die clash proof would be unlikely.
