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.

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.

I'm not seeing anything that looks like an "image" on the "outer rim", in those pictures.
