Among my recent acquisitions is a 50 cents 2004. According to KM, this would be a coin without mint mark (KM 494). My coin has a P under the bust. Super-rare variant, to be sold for millions of thousands on eBay or error in KM?

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

Odd, KM494 covers all circulation 50 cents - if they have a maple leaf mintmark, or a 'P' mintmark, or a 'W' mintmark.  Consistency? - who needs that in a catalogue?

always willing to trade modern UK coins for modern coins from elsewhere....

Obviously, your info is from numismaster, mine from the paper issue. The omission has been corrected. Problem solved. Thanks.

In Numista:

It may depend on one's definition of "mintmark". The P denotes composition (plated) rather than place or mintmaster.

Globetrotter

Hej,

yes, it's NOT a mint mark. I never said so, if you interpret numista like that, then numista's referee should make it clear.

FosseWay

My comment was more towards the OP, which mentioned that KM has the 2004 issue "without mintmark" - this is true, whether or not the coin has the P on it, because the P isn't a mintmark in the strict sense. On the other hand, if you use "mintmark" as shorthand for "any mark used on a coin that superficially resembles a true mintmark", such as mintmaster initials or marks, privy marks, or other things, then it's easy to see where the confusion arises. Especially given that it's entirely possible that KM uses "mintmark" in that wider sense.
