No your eyes are not crooked. Spin this Coin around from heads to tails in your hand; and you will lose your position, You will realize that if one side of the coin is held straight up and down. The opposite side of the coins detail will be rotated to the 1 O'clock position. A reason this 2010 Upset or Rotated error can be appealing to the eye, is due to the large face of the Australian Fifty Cent. This made rotation mint errors awesomely eye catching on the Aussie fifty cent coin.

This coin is most definitely far less common than upset errors that can be found in the 2001 Centenary Of Federation Australian $1,

Upset or rotated error coins occur when the fittings and or bolts holding a coin die in a fixed position either break or loosen causing the minting die to break free of its fixed position. Most cases of the 2010 50c Rotation error display the same rotation position of 1 O'Clock. Unlike the 2001 Centenary Of Federation $1 Error which can be found in any position on the clock face.

This 50c Coin Error is definitely a piece to enjoy spinning around in your hand, it also performs as a great conversation piece to show off to a fellow collector.
