I spoke with a production manager of the Royal Canadian Mint in Winnipeg. He sent me a photo of the master punch, used to make all the working dies for this coin. It does not have the line in it. There were no other punches used to make the working dies.

This feature is the product of a die break, but rather serendipitous...

That looks more like a slip of an engraving tool. Of course The Mint didn't make a mistake. Hmmm... one master ? Would you only have one if you were the boss ? Hmmm.. a backup , Hmmm.. Nah, pshaw, we'll be okay with only one ! What could go wrong ? !
