Hi,

I was wondering if anyone had any information on the possiblity of there being a $2 mule? Yesterday I received a 1997 $2 coin from a shop in Melbourne that has a 95%+ double rim. I placed a 5c piece over the top of it last night to see if it fitted and it seemed to. Any information you have on this possibility would be appreciated.

Thanks!

They do look a bit like that, but unfortunately are not struck with a 5c obverse die. If you measure the size of the effigy on your 'interesting' $2 and a normal $2 you will find they are the same size, and larger than the effigy on a 5c.
