Currently, only two GOLD errors are known (serial # 2023 and #2119). Check your coins and let me know what you find…The serial # is on the COA and not on the coin.
Serial # 2119 was first sold on eBay back in 2011. I recently purchased Serial #2119 in September 2014.
Serial #2023. I also recently acquired Serial 2023 in September 2014.
Here are known Serial # of the correct silver version
59, 580, 993, 1073, 1232, and 5044.
5044? Yes, I checked the serial# of a coin already in my collection. I also have another without COA. The coin without a COA is in a different capsule.
The question now. Did The Honolulu Mint catch the error and only let a few slip into their inventory or did they strike coins for the life of the die?
Based on my findings I say that they caught the error and had a few slipped into their inventory. I located 18 sales of the SILVER variety and only 3 sales of the GOLD variety (counting the two sales of serial #2119).
Images of the four coins in my collection.
