Please Read Before Posting A Topic

In the title please put date, denomination and type of coin design and a brief on what you are asking about.
In example: "1995 Lincoln Cent Missing 5" or "2010 Roosevelt Dime With a Line inside the rim".

All of this helps discern the different topics from each other and is much less confusing to members who want to help.
Topic titles like "how did this happen" or "help" often get ignored and lost in the confusion.

2021 Australia Perth Mint 1 oz Silver Dragon Bar Error

#1 Unread post by gmckearin »

I sent this email to the Perth Mint but they have not responded.
I have five 2021 Silver Dragons that have a "Scar" over the eye of the queen. These 5 coins are from a purchase of 15 coins made through Amazon.
I am not looking to return them. I am just inquiring, I would like to know if this was an error type coin (variety) that came from The Perth Mint. As such, I assume they would have a greater numismatic value. I have attached photos of 2 different coins. I could send you photos of the other 3 coins if you request them.
Thanks

Your images can't be enlarged, but we don't attribute varieties and using images we can't really tell you what is going on. You might try someone in person, go to CONECA and see if anyone is interested in examine your coin in hand.
You might even send Paul here a PM.

I assume they would have a greater numismatic value.
Unfortunately this is not always the case. Some errors are common and therefore do no command a premium. Please note I am not making that statement about the coins you posted, just helping with some understanding.



As has been said, we cannot see the details close enough to tell what is going on.

Best GUESS:
Do not take this as gospel, but a POSSIBILITY of what you are seeing may be a minor die crack. If the metal is raised in this are, then the die was cracked, and the metal therefore was pushed up into that void when the coin was struck.

Die cracks are one of the most common types of errors and typically won't bring a premium unless very large. Search for "coin die crack" online .

Again this is only a guess guess based on the little I can (maybe!) see.
