Malaysia Bunga Raya Series 2010 50 Cents With Die Crack And Die Clash Varieties. ( 2 in 1 ).


A die crack is a mark exhibiting on the surface a coin, usually in the form of a fine raised line or small blob. This happens because the die which struck the coin had a crack or small break on it that got transferred to the planchet during striking.

A die clash error happens when the coin dies come together in the coining press without a planchet present in between them. This causes an imprint of each die to be left on the opposing die surface.

When both errors appeared on a same coin, it shows that this coin was minted by a die that was being used in the coining press for sometime. When a die becomes "old" or "aged", it resembles like a human being, all "sickness " come around. On these "old" or "aged" dies ,you may  find die chip,die gouge,die crack, die clash,worn die,filled die,retool die,recut die etc, two or even multiple errors appear on them.

  2. Hi Anonymous,

  3. Hi Dickson,
    Nice shiny big fellow you have here, haha.
    Recently, we have found one with these features too but its a 2002 50sen and not shiny anymore.
    It has a distinct rotated clash die mark of the reverse on the obverse.
    Like yours here. Hehe, so shiny.
    Thanks a lot for sharing, Dickson :)

  4. Morning whycollect,
    You have a 2002 50sen with distinct rotated clash die mark of the reverse on the obverse,that's great,hope to see 'her' on your Blog soonest!
    Happy weekend!

  5. Hi Mr Dickson,
    Tertarik dgn cara penyampaian syiling error dgn foto dan penerangan yg tepat dan simple,kaedah ini memudahkan pengumpul baru utk mengenali bidang syiling error.Mungkin akan datang boleh Mr Dickson tuliskan pula sub-kategori bagi setiap error yg popular spt yg dinyatakan diatas...

    Variti 50 sen 2010 ini sangat menarik kerana kita dapat melihat 2 kerosakan pada die yg disebabkan faktor yg berlainan,.Syiling s3M nampaknya belum dijumpai die clash error,mungkin die dijaga elok2 supaya tidak "berlaga"..haha

    Terima kasih banyak2 Mr Dickson...

  6. Saudara depankanta,
    Bolekah saya "Sub" bahagian yang lebih details ia itu sub-kategori pada kamu untuk buat penyelasan ? Haha!

    Satu hari nanti ,bila Die M3S/S3M sudah 'tua' dan 'layu',error die varieties pasti muncul juga!
