MAJOR BRITISH WRONG PLANCHET ERROR

Great Britain 2 Pence struck on 1 Pence blankThese British 2 Pence coins were struck on 1 Pence blanks! The coins are copper-plated steel and weigh 3.56 grams, which corresponds to the 1 Pence. The coins are slightly out of round and the edges are a bit irregular as is expected on a wrong planchet error. Most likely the 1 Pence blanks got stuck in some minting equipment or bins and did not shake loose until after production had been changed to 2 Pence.  The coins appear to have been struck between 1992 and about 2001.  As might be expected, each piece is different depending exactly how the dies hit the undersized planchet.   Most pieces have the date struck off the planchet.

NAAFI (The Navy, Army and Air Force Institutes) was organized by the British government to run shops, clubs, bars, supermarkets, restaurants, recreational facilities and other facilities for servicemen and their families on British military bases and aboard Royal Navy ships.  It serves basically the same function of as the AAFES Exchanges do for United States forces. In war zones NAAFI facilities are usually operated as Expeditionary Force Institutes (EFI), thus the POGS reference both acronyms.  These POG coins were created for use in on British bases in Afghanistan and are denominated in United States Dollars. Three denominations were issued:  a green 5 Cents, orange 10 cents and blue 25 cents, all printed on thin, coated cardboard.  The front has the denomination, date and the legends "NAAFI Gift Certificate” and "Valid and redeemable in any EFI facility trading in US Dollars".   The 2010 issue commemorates the 90th anniversary of NAAFI.  The back of 5 Cents shows a NAAFI wagon in Afghanistan, the 10 Cents shows a World War II NAAFI wagon and the 25 Cents has the NAAFI 90th anniversary emblem.  The 2011, 2012 and 2013 issues all have the same design on all three denominations featuring the NAAFI emblem on the back.  This series came to an end in 2013 with the withdrawal of the remaining British forces from Afghanistan. Most remaining NAFFI POGs were destroyed, making the difficult to find today. We offer the sets of NAAFI/EFI POGS by date.
