CoinWorld - U.S. Mint officials confirmed Jan. 15 they were aware of the existence of a dollar mule error coin struck at the Denver Mint before Numismatic Guaranty Corp. announced Jan. 14 that the grading service had authenticated and graded the currently only known example.



"We are aware of this error coin from the past," U.S. Mint spokesman Michael White told Coin World in a Jan. 14 statement. "Since 2014 we have implemented multiple controls and mistake-proofing measures both within the Coining Die Vault and Numismatics operations which will prevent a similar error from occurring again."

The mule error was struck on a manganese-brass-clad dollar planchet with a Sacagawea obverse die for a Native American dollar paired with the common Statue of Liberty reverse for the Presidential dollar series, instead of the Hospitality Native American dollar reverse expected for 2014.

The Hospitality design depicts a Native American man offering a pipe while his wife offers provisions of fish, corn, roots and gourds. In the background is a stylized image of the northwest quadrant of the face of Capt. William Clark's compass, highlighting the area the Lewis and Clark Expedition explored.

Any indication of whether it was a deliberate lark by a mint employee or a true error?

Something (in my opinion) you will never hear or how it made it's way out of the mint.
