Hard to tell what the significance is unless you were there when they were added. Possibly someone's initials.
It didn't leave the mint that way so it is PMD

Here’s a website on counter stamped coins.
https://coins.thefuntimesguide.com/wha ... mped-coin/

I live down in the states and I do believe it’s not against the law to counter stamp a coin or run it through and make an elongated coin but I do believe in Canada it is illegal to do both of those. Or at least the way I read it the coin is no longer current if that happens to the coin.
