Until I seen the design struck on outer rim I decided to do some researching what it could be, this is what I came across.

Mate. Stop. Spamming. Don't create a new thread for every single new find.

No one needs to know about your 1981 5 cents or your decimal currency changeover coin. Just post it in the noodling thread for all I care!

As you can see that it has struck the coin twice on top end of coin.

That's not what mate means! You use the word 'mate' if you're frustrated with someone and you're trying to tell them that they're in the wrong!

By the way, the coin doesn't look errored to me. It just looks a little off-centre that's what.

Next time post your stuff in the Australian Circulation Finds so you don't clog up the forum for gosh darn sake!

Mate ... stop with the emojis. Stop with the Caps Lock. Stop with the typos. It's getting to my head. Next time post something like this in the Australian Circulation Finds thread, don't clog up the forum by creating a new discussion every time you find something interesting.

Please ignore amateurrollcoins' request to post elsewhere. On this forum, we hate megathreads and try to discourage them wherever possible. It is preferrred on this forum that each coin be given a separate thread, rather than have all coins lumped together in one megathread where many questions never get answered because it's impossible to figure out which coins have been answered and which haven't.

However, amateurrollcoins is correct on his other point: there's no error on this specific coin, only damage. The mild off-centring is not significant enough to be an error. If you see patterns, it's just Pareidolia. In other words, you're seeing a pattern because you want to see a pattern, not because such a pattern actually exists. For example, if this weren't a bee-themed coin, it never would have occurred to you to see a tiny bee elsewhere on the coin.

And as a general rule, if you can only see an "error" under high magnification, then it's not really a significant or valuable error - a minor variety, at most.
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
