Description

This error can be caused by two reasons :

  • One of the die was improperly aligned during the installation
  • One of the die was too slack during the striking process and turned on its axis

There are regularly rotated coins in circulation. Pivoting movements of less than fifteen degrees are in the standards mint and have no added value.
