World overstruck coins - do you collect them?


Recommended Posts

I have been hiding away doing a lot of things and this is one of them - I have been cataloging what coins I have in my collection.

This is a rather niche market to collect and I just have to get my head stuck in this. Think it's a really really bad habit of mine.

For those who don't know what overstruck means, it means using an old coin instead of a fresh new planchet to be struck as a 'new' coin. The result is that it may have traces of the old design under the newly struck coin.

Here are some of my favorites:

Please feel free to show some of your awesome overstruck coins!
