Hi Coin Community. I picked up this roll of 1996 Loons, and found 5 coins with the following markings. Wondering if this is a die chip, die fill, etc..type of errors? They are all over the coin. Thanks as always.

I believe it is die deterioration

I would agree with Paulsz, you can see the way the extra metal fades out in both directions.

Thanks. Is this a common occurrence for circulation coins?

Although not a expert, yes its quite common
I have seen it on everything except
maybe a Toonie.
And I think Paulsz is correct

Thanks for the input so far. Is it possible that this error is specifically a die accumulation error? As mentioned in the link below:

Yes and no. The images for "Die Accumulation" on that website do appear to be die deterioration error coins. The word "die accumulation" however, is not accurate - actually opposite to what the die would look like. The die would appear to have a concave surface at the point of the error, rather than a raised surface as the word would imply. When struck with a deteriorated die, coins will have extra raised areas, additional to the intended design.
