I have an odd 1981 20 cent - shiny and only weighing in at 11g exactly. Photos show normal coin on left, strange one on right. It looks almost tinny and oily.

PMD, some sort of environmental damage.

Some 1981 20c pieces were produced in Canada and tend to have a brighter, more reflective surface for whatever reason too.
