I'd agree. A minor mis-strike with a slight raised lip.
Nice find.

There's a possibility it might be a 'collar' error, can you show us a pic of the edge?

I have put it in a 2x2, no reeding on the rim.
Your opinion is most welcome Nevol.

Mis-strike or the misaligned die are not as frequent on the 5, 10, 20 cent coins. (Gold coins are very common)Nice find.

Guys, there's no edge reeding. I assume it's also slightly larger than a normal 5 cent piece?

This isn't a mis-strike or a misaligned die, it's a broadstrike. A broadstrike happens when a coin is struck with the collar die completely missing (either it's broken away, or someone forgot to install it).

Broadstrikes are often off-centre, because there's literally nothing holding the blank in the correct location. Especially with modern gravity-fed machinery, the coin simply keeps moving.

Of course, no edge reeding. Broadstrike it is. Learning all of the time.
So what determines a mis-strike, or is mis-strike a generic term for all strikes not performed correctly?

"Mis-strike", at least the way I have always used it, is a generic term for some kind of off-centring or misalignment; it can apply to either a "misaligned die", where only one side is off-centre, or an "off-centre strike", where both sides are off-centre. Coins where the most prominent feature is a "railroad rim" or similar edge deformity can also be classified as "mis-struck". Basically, a "mis-strike" happens when all three dies (top, bottom and collar) all come together onto the blank coin as expected, but something's gone wrong with the alignment.

Mint errors not generally considered mis-strikes are things like mules, capped dies, brockages and broadstrikes - where one of the dies is obstructed, missing, wrong or incomplete.

Thanks Sap, much appreciated, would you happen to have a link to a video all about different errors and how they occur?
