Defective coins

Any coin of any year of issue and denomination can be expensive if it has an interesting or rare defect. Such coins were not discarded after minting and released into circulation.

The first type of defects is a double shock with a shift in the image. This is a very rare option. It occurs when the press accidentally hits a finished coin.  The repeated image is shifted and the effect is that you can see in the picture below. Often such coins are discarded, but sometimes they manage to slip through an inattentive controller and get into circulation. One copy costs up to 20,000 rubles. If the shift is minimal, you will be able to gain no more than 1,000 rubles.

Another possible defect is incudal marriage, or “stickiness”.  As a result, a mirror image appears on the second copy. On the market, such a copy costs about 5,000 rubles.

One-sided coinage is also highly regarded by numismatists.  The price of such a coin is from 3000 rubles.
