Die crack error on King Charles III 75th birthday coins?


Recommended Posts

I was a bit disappointed by both of my 1/40 oz 75th birthday gold coins, especially after the £15 price bump over the previous coronation coin in the same size. One coin had a bit of black fluff struck into the obverse, and the other had a small dent-like strike-through caused by a fleck of metal not being cleaned off the die prior to striking. I have returned the fluffy coin but after taking a closer look at the other one I've decided I might keep it as it appears to show a die crack.

The die crack error is circled in red below, and the non-interesting strike-through is circled in blue. I don't regard the strike-through as an error as it's far too small to be significant (even on a coin as small as this); it's just poor quality and unfortunately commonplace on many RM coins lately.

Apologies for the poor photo, but this is about the best I could do through the blister packaging. I'm pretty sure the artefact is on the coin and not the packaging, as its position remains constant regardless of viewing angle.

Anyway, just wondered how many others are like this? Get yer loupes out for the lads!
