Today I found in my change........


Recommended Posts

Thought this would be a nice thread to start, I don't think it has already been done (please correct me if I'm wrong).

Anyway, please post up any non-standard or above face value coins that you find in your change.

I'll kick things off, today I found in my change.......

A Jersey brass 1/12 shilling. It's bigger than a 2p by quite a bit, and rather cool. Never seen one before, mintage of 1.2 million so not a huge mintage for a circulating coin.

Cool!! I am still looking at all these funny Euro coins, but have no idea what is and what is not interesting. The currency is too young for any exciting old finds of course. I check out the flea markets for old Escudos but still don't really know what is and what is not collectable.

 

Nice find!

The racing car one is from the Isle of Man :)

Looking to purchase Sovereign Scales/Rocker/Balance. Feel free to Pm me at any time. Also prepared to pay a small finders fee for any scales spotted in your local antiques shops, send me a pic, and if it's one I'm interested in, I'm sure we can come to some sort of arrangement. :)

What's the deal?

DB the deal is if you look closely the water actually comes over the swimmers face when it should not, they realised the mistake and corrected it but some had gone into circulation. 

 

So forget Kew 50p's look out for these.

 

This is what it should look like.

I was selling the Olympic coins on eBay in 2012 and had piles of them. I seem to recall noticing the variation but took little notice. Is the low number confirmed by the mint because I doubt it's that low. I had a couple of Goalballs and Badmintons which were twisted a few degrees out when struck. I may have one of those still.

The 600 figure appears to be quoted in many places, but I'm unable to find out where this figure originally came from.

There's just no stopping me, checked old faithful eBay price guide to find it's worth about 50p.post-389-0-91276700-1422098356_thumb.jpg

As an aside Mrs hooky stacker helps out at a pensioners bingo night, admission is run on a trust basis with the pensioners dropping a small fee into a jar at the entrance. This is a very very small sample of what regularly ends up in the jar, when persistent offenders are targeted the response is usually along the lines of. "well I never, I don't know how that got in my purse,pocket..."Etc. No gold or silver yet.
