The Coin that Never Was - A Certified 'Blank' Coin
Error coins are all the rage today in collecting and it's easy to see why! They are not only unique pieces of United States Mint history, but they are also considered to be the 'crown jewels' of any collection...quite simply because many error coins are downright IMPOSSIBLE to find at your local coin shop.
While combing the nation for more coins for our collecting family, we came across a small number of Official U.S. Mint Error coins that we simply could not pass up! These were the coins that never were! Each of these golden dollar planchets is certified authentic in brilliant uncirculated condition by the graders over at Global Certification Services Inc. and are technically not supposed to exist at all! Now that's a rare error coin!
Just what is a 'Blank' Planchet?
A coin 'planchet' is the circular piece of metal that is used to create the coin. These 'blank' pieces of metal are then inserted into the coin press and transformed into another stunning piece of American coinage. Somehow, someway, these secret error coins found their way outside of the Mint!
The special Global Certification Services holder is one perfectly suited for Error coins, primarily because they do all the talking for you! On the back of each certified holder is an informational write-up about the history of the Error coin and what makes it so unique!
