2014, 2015 Sovereigns with one side Proof, one side BU

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

When browsing the census of PCGS recently, I found these two entries below:



Apparently there were a few half sovereigns and full sovereigns struck in one side proof and one side BU (or whatever - but no frosting) quality.

Any idea what the idea behind it was? I might assume they were struck in very small numbers for some bigwigs?

I am not sure it is an error coin. 

It would mean that the same mistake happened in both 2014 and 2015 AND in both full and half sov AND at least some of the error coins made it past the quality control. 

Anyway, it seems they are quite interesting items. Did anyone here see any of them in the markets? Any indication of their value? After all it would be AFAIK the first minting error in QEII Sovereigns.

my 1/2 2015 sovereign BU has the same "error"... I don't think this is very special.

In 2013, 2014 only brilliant unc (bu) 1/2 were struck. In 2015 bu and bullion coins were struck. One side BU and one side bullion finish...
