Didn't come out of the mint like that. PMD
It is a typical vice coin and the diamonds are incuse, not raised.

Well if they are raised, I'd say you really got something special there.

I am thinking incuse as well. Looks like the displaced metal was pushed out at the rims. But, I can see how with that lighting, it is hard to tell. It made me do a double take.

I am betting your light is nearly 90 degrees over the coin. You might try light from a low angle. If raised the diamond is raised, it should be bright on the side nearest the light and dark on the far side due to the shadow. If it is a hole, then the shadow will be on the side near the light.

Wait - are they raised on BOTH sides, or raised on one side and incuse on the other?

The deformation of the rim is a red flag for me.

If those are raised then that would mean the die would have had to have those diamond patterns pressed INTO it and that just doesn't make sense -
