2016 Star Trek Gold Delta Die Crack

Postby Relic » Mon Sep 26, 2016 12:27 am

I think I found a Die Crack in a 2016 Star Trek Gold Delta coin from the RCM. This is a non-circulating legal tender coin.
At first I thought it was a scratch but on a closer look it is not a scratch.
Crack goes from the edge above the 2nd A in Canada through the D and the last A then down to the shield and then up through the 2 to the edge.

Looking for other example coins to compare to and comments on the error.

Took a lot of effort to get the right lighting but I have some microscope pictures.

In a couple pics you can see the secondary flow of the gold on top of the other side of the crack.

Surprised this coin got out of the mint.
