They are not particularly scarce . I have a few 20p and 2p's with excess metal blobs .Some are worse than this one , and some a bit less .More poor quality control , than an error.

Hello Erisoluse and

I think mick1271's theory could well be correct.

However, I also wonder if it could be bubbling caused by corrosion of the steel under the copper plating. 1p and 2p coins minted since 1992 have just a thin layer of copper over a steel core. I've seen coins where the copper layer has been damaged and they look similar to yours. It could possibly be due to a defective planchet.

To me it looks more like the residue of some one practicing brazing on a coin. Too bold and irregular to be mint created.

I will try and dig out the ones I have and stick up some pics . definitely not PMD ,and more common on the 20p , which rules out Paddys brazing possibility as the blobs are cupro nickel .Still cant work out the cause though , air bubbles in the flan is a possibility .
