It is not a mint error of any kind.

Various non-US mints also would (and still do) plate coins and resell them for probably over the last 50+ years. They'll plate anything silver, gold, platinum, ruthenium, they'll also paint them, etc. All to make money above their face value. Oh, and when the novelty wears off you can still spend them for face value.
I remember in high school the science teacher had a little dog dish of mercury for everyone to touch and teach lessons with. Now its a Hazmat declaration and probably everyone would have to suit up and close the school down.
@Snowman said. Mercury!!! Stop putting it in your mouth and wash you hands which you should be doing already!!!
@paddyman98 post a very good YouTube clip of an example of mercury covered cents...
awful science teacher, who hated science. I didn't get the cool science teacher, who let his students roll mercury around in their hands. Until it fell on the floor and disappeared into the gaps in the hardwood flooring.
This is why we can't have nice things. Or fun ones.
or you can just put a little bead of Hg on it from that broken thermometer and rub it around with your fingers...never hurt meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
I’ll give you your first like and a Welcome to CT...nice first post.
Try to improve your pictures by cropping out the excess and making sure they are in focus before you post. Forum members can help you best that way.
And, wear white cotton gloves when you handle your coins, because, in this case, you are learning they may have toxic or biologic substances on them. I continue to work with coins but I’m washing my hands about 12 times a day now. Welcome aboard...Spark
