What is this? What caused it?
I included pictures of the back too, so I could show the area behind the 'doughnut hole' thing.

It is PMD, someone or something "punched" the coin after it left the mint.What caused it

Target practice of some sort. Unless you were there when the damage was caused, you'll never know for certain. Definitely post mint damage.

Always post full photos. Thanks.

with the others here.
Sometimes an image of something can be too close. In order to get a good overall impression of a coin we recommend that you post up a picture of your coin - the whole thing cropped , both sides.

A good example of why we need full coin (both sides) is important can be seem in this topic - have a look:

With it being donut like with the center not pressed in it wouldn't be a bb or a projectile hit it. To me it looks like someone took a nail set punch and made the mark. Would explain why the center of the hole is unaffected yet you can Cleary see on the reverse something with force struck it and dented the backside.

Yes, post-strike damage Nail punch could have done it. If coins could talk.
