Overstrike(redirected from overstrikes)
Also found in: Dictionary, Encyclopedia.
A situation in which a coin is struck over another coin, rather than over a blank disk. Usually, the overstrike is the same denomination, but sometimes two different denominations are struck on the same coin. In any case, it is so rare that it can affect the value of a coin.
