CANADIAN ERROR COINS - STRIKE VARIETIES

Partial Collar & Broadstrike

Flanged partial collar - Often referred to as "Railroad Rim", these strikes are the result of a planchet not fully seated in the collar during strike. Metal not restrained by the collar spreads out, giving the edge of the coin a lip.

Broadstrike - These strikes are the result of planchets struck without the restraining collar (jammed in the down position). Maybe centred or uncentred, both obverse and reverse showing all die design.
