EXPERIMENTAL is incorrectly spelled EXRERIMENTAL on some of the 1996 Faraday crowns of Isle of Man.

'Firstever' on 50 and 500 Won coins of North Korea issued last year to commemorate the US-DPRK summit in Singapore.

TFS! A hilarious piece. I love the dotted lines running to Glasgow and Brussels and Riga, but wonder just what they mean? Is it a Singapore Airlines route map, perhaps? Furthermore, I am grateful to hear that the North Korean and US delegations not just sat in the same room and stared at each other in disgust, but actually moved their jaws, making sounds. :laughing:

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Togo, 1,000 Francs CFA, 2004. Princess Kyniska. Travaie instead of Travail. Same error on coins commemorating Nike.

Pitcairn Islands, 2 dollar, 2013. Anniversary of the coronation. Vareity instead of variety.
Correct version exists too.
