Double strike, I think - basically the medieval version of Machine Doubling. IIRC, back then they didn't really have the kind of machinery that would be required for doubled dies as we know them.

Neat coin, though! Do you have full-coin shots?

14th Century gold is pretty special @seap! I'm going to move this thread over to the medieval section of CCF.

Lovely coin, I would agree looks like a double strike.
