Australian 2006 One Dollar Coin

Flip over double strike. Found in October 2006, this coin shows a strong image of the Reverse and the Obverse on the Reverse. This is not a clash die, as that would give a negative image. The first and second strikes are not aligned with each other. Note the edge, about 4.5mm long, is reduced to approximately 1.5mm. The edge has also been drawn up past the rim, giving a sawtooth rim edge. The rim itself has also received a small amount od doubling from being re-struck. - On the reverse side, the legend ELIZABETH II and AUSTRALIA are noticeable. Queen Elizabeth II's crown is quite clear, as is her forehead, nose, mouth and neck. The designer's initials are also visible, as is muck of the date '2006'. On the obverse side, a very siscenible 1 DOLLAR is very clear and very noticeable. The kangaroos are visible to a lesser extent, but still strong enough to be recognised as such. Note the fields above and behind Queen Elizabeth II's head, as well as in from of her nose.
