Another mistake I just came across on a 2 Dollars coin of the Cook Islands of 2006.
Photographie should be photography or was this planned because the first photo was taken in France ?
If so, it doesn't make sense at all and it is still incorrect.

As for the Cook Islands piece, oh well. :)  By the time that error piece saw the light of day, they probably had forgotten about it anyway. Suggest a theme and a design, let them make some profit, and the Cook Islands will issue almost anything you like.

The Portuguese error I find much more interesting. Since it is not really expensive, the mint must have issued quite a few before the mistake was noticed ...

East Caribbean States / E.C.C.B. 2012 - Carribean instead of Caribbean in the RM Diamond Jubilee series.

Apparently, the Royal Mint realised of this error quite late in the production process, and the coins are quite common. Please note that correct spelling coins were also minted. The spelling is correct on the second E.C.C.B. coin from the series, dated 2013.

Just came across this one. Automobile historiques should be automobiles historiques. The other coins in the series are apparently correct.



Congo, 10 Francs, 2002. Hispano Suiza H6 1919.

Bahamas, 25 cents, 1972.

The correct spelling is "TWENTY-FIVE" - not "TWENTY FIVE", and certainly not "TWENTYFIVE", as seen on this coin.

Cool find! Well, I guess the Turkish spelling sort of explains why such an error could be made. Then again, proofreading is not such a bad idea ...
