2 euro coin with rotated die

Post by Dima » Sun Jan 19, 2014 7:50 am

Hi

I have got 2 euro coin with rotated die. It is Germany coin, the classic one. It is original (it is not fake).

Does anyone know - is it a rare coin and what can be the approximate cost of this coin.

I attach the picture for reference.


Best regards
D.

Hello Dima,

I don't know exactly the value of that coin (and probably nobody really knows it), but some 2 euro coins with rotated die have been selled for about 80 euros or even more!
Some years ago, I discoverd a Belgian 2 euro coin with 180° in my collection and I asked for the value of it on another internet forum. Somebody answered it was worth about 160 euros :o

However, it is not that rare that Belgian coins have a rotated die because of the terrible Belgian mintage techniques. :wink:
