I thought it to be struck through with a staple or something but then I noticed it on the other side as well No damage on the outer rim.

Leaning toward PMD since there appears to be some distortion around it.

If the damage is post strike, it can't be a mint error, but just a damaged coin:

yep, PMD Looks like it was made from a Carpenters End Cutting Pliers. (The jaws on close evenly and parallel.)
Take note of the slight angle on the coin as this was the only way the cutters could fit in that far on the coin.

I don't think it was cut by side or diagonal cutters. The cut would be deeper at the rim as compared to the far end of the cut. diagonal cutter apply a cutting force a little at a time and the jaws close. So, if the end of the cut was, say 1mm deep, the end nearest the hinge of the cutters would be deeper like 2 or 3mm deep. The carpenter cutters apply even pressure across the entire cutting surface. You can see clearly on the reverse image that the gouge is even from start to finish. On the obverse, same thing, but the cutter may have had a bit if damage to it causing the cut at the rim to be a bit wider.
