The coin blank and the blanks with upsets on edge are called planchets. A type I planchet is the coin blank itself. A type II planchet is the coin blank with the edging rolling. Planchet errors include blanks used in the minting process with cracks, clips, defective lamination, occluded gas, unplated, wrong metal, and wrong planchet.
