Brockage

Brockage

[brok-ij]
In Coin collecting, brockage refers to a type of error coin in which a side of the coin has both the normal image and a mirror image of the opposite side impressed on it. This is caused by an already minted coin sticking to a die and impressing onto another coin. Brockage is relatively rare and, in good condition, coins showing definite brockage can sell for large amounts of money.
