A broadstrike occurs when a planchet is not adequately secured by the collar on the minting press. This allows for unique and fascinating coins to be struck with additional smooth fields beyond the intended design of the coin. They are highly popular in the error community and make for a great talking point in any collection. It's not every day you come across mistakes made by the mint but when you do it's certainly worth a closer look!
