Mint Errors

Ancient coins dies were hand engraved and the coins were hand struck. Significant variation is normal and errors, including spelling errors, off center strikes, double strikes, etc. usually decrease, not increase, the value of ancient coins. On this page we will list only the more unusual errors, beyond those ordinarily expected.

Antoninus Pius, August 138 - 7 March 161 A.D.

Not in RIC. The normal obverse legend for combined with this reverse type and legend is IMP CAES T AEL HADR ANTONINVS AVG PIVS P P. This coin is missing HADR. For this variety, only four sales in the last two decades are recorded on Coin Archives.

Late Roman Reverse Brockage, 8 March 364 - 24 August 367 A.D., Valens or Valentinian I

|Mint| |Errors|, |Late| |Roman| |Reverse| |Brockage,| |8| |March| |364| |-| |24| |August| |367| |A.D.,| |Valens| |or| |Valentinian| |I|, |AE| |3|
Interesting strike error, called a brockage. A brockage occurs when coin is stuck in a die and another coin is struck before it is removed. The obverse design on this coin was struck with the reverse of a coin stuck in the obverse die. Because it should be easy for the mint workers to spot a coin stuck in the obverse die (the anvil side), reverse brockages are rare.

Bronze AE 3, RIC IX Siscia 7(a)ii or 7(b)ii, VF, nice green patina, weight 2.570 g, maximum diameter 19.6 mm, Siscia (Sisak, Croatia) mint, 28 Mar 364 - 24 Aug 367 A.D.; obverse incuse of reverse; reverse SECVRITAS REIPVBLICAE (security of the Republic), Victory walking left, wreath in right hand, palm frond in left hand, ΓSISC in exergue; rare mint error; SOLD
