Comments

Albeit relatively scarce, there is one well known variant of this coin, traditionally known as the Pantograph Error. There are three main features through which the Pantograph Error can be distinguished. Firstly, the rim in the error coin is thinner. Secondly, the portrait of Juan Carlos I is somewhat bigger than in the normal coin. And thirdly, the sphere on the reverse of the error coin is also bigger, and usually, it presents a blank space in its center, probably due to a weak strike.

The following image of the Pantograph Error is courtesy of Aureo & Calicó:
