2012 Loonie extra metal? Any thoughts?

Postby White Devil » Mon Jun 10, 2013 9:27 am

Hi,
I came across this one in my pocket change. 2012 loonie with the new security features.
As a newbie, I'm not too sure just what it is & if its common.

Any thoughts would be awesome.
Thanks

That's a lot of extra metal. Almost like a weak spot in the die caused a hunk of it to break out (fall out).
New to me too.

Cheers
