    Very beautiful and interesting coin! How did it happen and how rare is that to occur?

    Ragged Perforations (a.k.a. “Blow Holes”)
    Definition: A planchet defect in the form of a ragged hole. Such perforations typically develop as the coin metal strip is rolled out. Tensile stresses tear apart areas of the strip that are abnormally stiff and brittle.

    A perfect case of heterogeneity. The planchets must have come from China. :)
