Coins with wrong obverse

Post by MrCheckRaise1 » Thu Feb 18, 2010 3:40 pm

hi guys, i heard about some particular coins minted with the wrong obverse (for example the german eagle typical of the 1€-2€ on a 0.50 coin), and rumors say that they have some great value, and if you give them to the bank they will pay you a lot of money. i don't know much about that, can someone explain me a little more about it? couldn't find anything on the internet. thank you :wink:

they have a lot value on ebay, but not at any bank, I doubt that very much.
