Argentina Striking Errors

coins coins

Argentina provides us with two striking errors.

The first is a 1985 Argentina 10 Pesos that was struck a minimum of 17 times. Super strikes are highly desired and its no wonder when examples like this are found. Who can resist the eye appeal and drama this coin provides? Certainly, not many.

Without question, this 10 Pesos remained in the striking chamber for a prolonged period. Other planchets were fed on top of and underneath both faces of the coin while multiple strikes were happening. This distorted and expanded the coin to an ever greater extent.








The second Argentinian error is dated 1985 and also 10 Pesos in denomination. It is a beautiful die cap. The obverse clearly depicts the "Casa de Tucuman", a historic house where the Argentine Declaration of Independence was issued on July 9th, 1816. The golden hue and luster of both coins owes itself to their brass composition.
