2002 Ohio state quarter

A 2022 Ohio state quarter was minted in March 2002. It was the 17th coin released in the 50 State Quarters Program.

The U.S. Sun explains John Flanagan, and William Cousins engraved the obverse, and Donna Weaver engraved the reverse.

Ohio was admitted to the Union on March 1, 1803, and is the birthplace of aviation pioneers, according to the legend behind the coin.

The state’s contribution to aviation history is then highlighted on the coin.

Thanks to a few significant factors, the uncommon Ohio quarter sold for almost $1,000.

According to TikToker and coin enthusiast Blake Alma, the 2002 Ohio state quarter does not typically have many flaws.

He posted on TikTok to say that the double-struck error is what adds value to this quarter.
When a coin is stamped twice, an error of this kind results.

Error coins

As per NewsBreak, double denominations or “planchet” errors are other names for error coins. This is because a blank coin, or “planchet,” makes the error during the minting process. According to The U.S. Sun, mistakes can occur when the incorrect planchet is fed into the minting press or when the machine contains dies of various denominations, and a mix-up occurs.

When searching for rare coins, start by spotting any that seem out of the ordinary, such as ones with a design you’ve never seen, a printing mistake where the print appears “off,” or one with the incorrect denomination printed on it. Remember to examine both sides.
