Hi guys,
Just trying to see if this is a legit error and if there is a market here for some collectors. Cheers.

Pretty sure not an error like 99%, quite sure its just coin machine damage, therefore no added value. At least it is worth 1 dollar.

Ok, what kind of machine are you talking about? From the Royal Australian Mint or any other machine that has nothing to do with production?

Hi jcmos and to the forum!

Would it be possible to see photos of the entire coin, both sides?

Both are just scratches I think (though it looks like a die crack in the first photo).

coin machine -> any machine that takes coins, usually a older mechanism coin counter will give it that sort of dmg.

@MR T ive noticed it is very hard to find die crack in decimal coins, chips are alright to find, but is cracking monitored by a machine or something like that?

Is the line running through the date raised or a gouge?

It is raised, see first pic. A second opinion said to me that it's a planchet flaw error, not a machine coin damage.

The discolouration is interesting but I'm leaning towards a die crack rather than a planchet flaw error.

Yeah you only see very small cracks very occasionally. Not sure why - die production would be much better these days for sure but I'd think the mint is still interested in getting maximum use out of them.
