    Hi there. I have a number of £2 coins. I would appreciate what to look for on Miss printed coins. For example, a 1999 with 999 instead of 1999. Is it of any value? Many thanks

      What you describe can happen when a digit in the die gets blocked. It’s probably worth more than face value, but it all depends on who you can find that is interested and how much people are willing to pay. It’s also possible that it could be a sloppily made forgery of a £2, but I’ve certainly heard of and seen genuine coins with digits missing.

    There appears to be a difference in numbering of designs of portraits here and designs of obverses in Collectors’ Coins. Obverses seem to have changed without altering the portrait. I am easily confused.
