I believe I may have a rotated bicentennial coin. I'm not sure if it is rotated, or just an awkward design, but it looks to be rotated about fifteen degrees clockwise?

This is my first toe dip into coins after seeing a tiktok about the potential 2023 mint collectors queen face coin, so I've no idea of the lingo you guys use! Could someone please point me in the right direction to confirm this is rotated? Or even tell me how to take a photo to show that it is rotated?

Ta, and sorry for my ignorance!

Sadly I dont think it is rotated, just a goofy shaped kangaroo. Thanks for the help anyway, John!

Here's pictures if my best attempt at the mirror method for anyone curious haha:

Hi Jessssuhh and

Just by placing the coin into a 2 x 2 holder (as you have done) is all you really need to do to check for rotation.
If you aren't really familiar with a coin's design then you can compare it with examples from sites such as Numista https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces2158.html
