About

Do you have change?

Do you know there are endless amounts of rare and misprinted coins in current circulation! Selling for thousands of dollars. Even 10"s of thousands.

can you see the errors

We couldn't

We had a mate over having a few beers on a Friday afternoon. He noticed a small change jar on the table and asked if he could have a quick look at the coins, Then put a few a side and the rest back in the jar. He said to us these coins are worth more then face value. We didn't believe him and had a quick laugh. 

Turns out he new a bit about them. 

He pulled his phone out and googled them to show us the prices. One was a 2007, 20 cent coin selling for $25, we had 13 coins. As you could imagine we were amazed, We thought we would try to sell them. Some sold for $10 and others sold for $25. We made a quick $180 profit, from the coins worth $3.70 at face value. We used a coin page on social media to sell these. They all sold with in 2 weeks. We have since found a few coin auction websites. They target old rare coins not misprints on new coins.

We also realised a problem. We had to accurately create an ad. This took a long time for each different coin to identify, detail and post. Coin Addiction will have a sell button which prefills all details, your add is ready for auction instantly

After hours of scouring the internet the idea came about. We thought, "why has no one made anything to scan these coins yet." "How many people would not know, new coins can sell for more then face value."? Collectors will noodle faster and easier, The general population will discover a new obsession for unearthing valuable coins.

We started researching and found there is nothing at all capable of doing this. The excitement started to rise. Every coin we now get we look at it in full detail. We are hooked and have started collecting/selling these error coins. We want to share this information with the world. There are thousands of these coins in current circulation. The different types of error coins is phenomenal In all currencies.

We have now enlisted an app builder who is creating the software needed to build Coin Addiction. We believe this app is 10 years before its time. How exciting is that? Discovering a totaly new tech that has the potentiel to become a new trend.

Double tail roo

If you couldn't see the errors in the top pic. Here it is again highlighted. They are the bottom of the big kangaroos tail. Its known as a double tail error and also has a cud in top left of the 1.

If your wondering what happened to the mate he is now a co-founder of Coin Addiction could not have done with out him,

Coin Addiction is an app that's capable of scanning and measuring all Australian coins. It looks and verifies misprints from standard coins. It values coins that are worth more then their own face value. It will revolutionize the way people look at their change.

$1 mule coin sells from $350 to $5000 depending on condition

With this cutting edge technology collectors will be able to find coins, they have been waiting years to find. By having people scan their coins they have hidden in their money boxes or change jars. We will be able to find thousands of coins that have never surfaced. Everyone will gain form Coin Addiction as we can build this on a global scale. As all currencies' have misprinted notes and coin errors. It will be fast and fun for subscribers to use. Coin Addiction links sellers to buyers.

2017 20 coin struck on a $2 coin known as a planchet error sold for $8500

How we sell these coins when we find them. Collectors from all over the world download the Coin Addiction app. They then select what coins they want to find to expand their collections. They will then receive notifications from Coin Addiction with the coin or coins at sale in our auction. They then bid for them. 

When we scan a coin and see that it is worth more then face value. Coin Addiction will verify the misprint , rarity and condition of the coin. It then prices it at its lowest sale price. For example a mule coins sells from $350 to $5000 the price being $350. The subscriber knows not to spend the coin Its a guaranteed sale. 

"Wanna sell " click the sell button and the auction form will be auto filled. The coin then goes to auction and a collector may pay $5000 for the coin. A nice little bonus for the subscriber. The Coin Addiction team are verry excited to bring this app to life and create the new generation of treasure hunters.
