Do you mean die clash?

It does look like the spikes above the 5 are poorly struck though.

"Strike through" is not the correct term. A "strike through" is when a foreign object (like a screw, or a piece of wire, or a piece of string or cloth) falls in between the coin and the die, so the impression of the object lands on the coin.The term for what you think you might have is a "die clash". So an "echidna spike strike through" would be if an actual spike from a real-life echidna managed to fall into the coin press and get squeezed into a coin.And while there are echidnas in the wild around Canberra, you're not likely to have one wander into the coinage press area.

And this isn't a die clash either; die clashes almost always happen on the high points of the die, which are the lowest points on the coin - the background field, rather than on the devices like the queen's portrait.

I thinkit's just a bag mark - dints and scratches from rattling around in the big drums and bags of finished coins before they were rolled. These coins are not rolled at the mint, they get shipped in bulk to the armoured car delivery companies, who roll them up. They might, or might not, all be actual mint-fresh coins; the companies are under no obligation to provide "uncirculated rolls" or making sure all their coins are single-source.
Don't say "infinitely" when you mean "very"; otherwise, you'll have no word left when you want to talk about something really infinite. - C. S. Lewis

Coins look blinkin good here and yes not an real life animal die clash spikes more the word I was looking for, still learning on die errors though.
But I'm getting there.
