A variety certainly does not have to be designed. Just look up any U.S. pcgs/ ngc registry set... if that set includes varieties... anywhere from pennies to dollars... you'll see "doubled" in the varieties. Regarding the QDR Panda, it's not just the denomination that's doubled... the entire coin is doubled (or should I say "quadrupled") & is dramatic enough to be recognized as a variety. I checked out the 2 examples of mint errors posted on this forum... these were manufacturing errors, which is indeed a "mint error".  Although struck twice, look around the rim & you'll notice the strike is out of alignment. I think the confusion lies between a "multiple strike" coin & a "doubled die" coin. With the "multiple strike" / mint error coin, you'll notice the coin is off centered (which the same goes for a broadstruck coin or you will see an NGC label referring to the coin's "collar"). These will always be recognized as "mint errors" by PCGS & NGC because the errors are human &/or mechanical. However, with a "doubled die" / variety coin, the coin will be in alignment (I'm not referring to the words/ numbers/ devices...  the coin itself is centered) & to be considered a "variety", the doubling needs to be a dramatic enough difference from it's original design. Hence the difference between minting error & variety. NGC & Stacks are definitely accurate in calling this QDR a variety. I hope this helps you guys!

To clarify a double or quadruple die in this case is not an alignment issue.  The actual die was struck incorrectly from the hub whereby the die has the quadruple image.  The pop will only be limited to either the amount of coins struck until the die wore out or the mint realized their mistake and stopped using the die.

Auction ended with no bids.  :confused1:

If the coin were a 69 I'd probably have bid on it.

Yes, I think it is the QDR-002 based on which direction the doubled period of the ".999" pointed.  For QDR-001, it smears toward the eyes of panda.  For QDR-002 it smears toward the "yuan" character.  Attached is a photo of my (normal) 1998 S10Y.  The period in front of "999" is sharp without any doubling.

Yes those are qdr-002.  Nice find.  I suggest you submit to NGC for proper identification and labeling.

Thanks, i hope to find more. Looks QDR-001 are often released to USA/China and -002 i have found here in Germany. Pherhaps they are from "MDM".
Ill have a look for more at Berlin.

Ill send the two coins to NGC over the munich Office and when they are back ill sell one here.
