I just got this 2020 2 oz silver Kraken round from the canadian mint. I do not know if silver rounds have any value in errors, but I want to share this anyway. On the obverse the queen has a die crack on her chin, and the upper half of 2020 seems like an error also, almost like cud in the die. what are your guys thoughts on these areas in the photos? this is un-circulated directly from the mint. It is my first time buying from them, couldn't pass up this beautiful coin.

They look like post-mint-damage ( PMD) rather than any error. A die crack would leave a protruding/raised portion/mark on the coin. Unless there was some foreign material that found its way into the recessed areas of the die, those recessed scratches/marks wouldn't be there on the coin.

okiecoiner, those are raised areas, especially 2020 date, the last picture you can see the upper half of 2020 is raised. I can agree with the chin being a scratch though, I can't get a close enough to shot to see if it is gouged or raised

although nice coins, they are just bullion coins, they work the life out of the dies. Whereas with nclt, the dies would have been replaced earlier.

Not likely.
It is not a collectible coin, it is bullion.
The Mint does not sell bullion directly to the public.
Who knows how it was handled before you received it, most of what you see is PMD.
"Dipping" is not considered cleaning...
