A Die Chip occurs when that little area on the Die used to strike a Blank Planchet breaks away (Chips away) leaving a small void. So when the Blank Planchet is struck by the die the metal from the planchet flows into the void.
It's not unusual for people new to collecting errors having no idea what a particular error might be called. So, when you start a search or Google your description, you probably won't find it listed. It doesn't mean that it could be rare. It doesn't even mean that it could be an error. The word "error" is such a broad classification, and there can actually be dozens and dozens of different types of errors that could apply to a single coin. ~ Chris
