CONECA (pronounced: CŌ´NECA) is a national numismatic organization devoted to the education of error and variety coin collectors. CONECA focuses on many error and variety specialties, including doubled dies, Repunched mintmarks, multiple errors, clips, double strikes, off-metals and off-centers—just to name a few. In addition to its website, CONECA publishes an educational journal, The Errorscope, which is printed and mailed to members bimonthly. CONECA offers a lending library, examination, listing and attribution services; it holds annual meetings at major conventions (referred to as Errorama) around the country.

CONECA was formed through a merger of CONE and NECA in early 1983. To learn more about the fascinating HISTORY OF THE ERROR HOBBY and THE HISTORY OF CONECA, we encourage you to visit us our main site Here

  • Canadian cent struck over a struck 2004 Papua New Guinea One Toea on a Fiji planchet.

    I have never seen an error affecting 3 different countries on the same coin but I am sure there are some out there. Purchased on ebay sometime back. I knew there was a lot going on with the coin from the listing picture but was pleasantly surprised when the coin arrived and I was able to determine what it really was. The 2004 New Guinea One Toea is supposed to weigh 2.1 grams but the coin weighed 1.64 grams which is correct for a 2004 Fiji One Cent. Canada was striking coins for both countries in 2004.
