1999 Nunavut 2 Dollar
When production began for the 1999 Nunavut two dollar coins, the reverse die designed for striking proof silver coins was accidentally used to produce some regular circulation coins. All of these mule coins were inserted into Uncirculated sets, although some of these coins have been removed from their sets and sent for grading by their owners.

These are considered "Handsome Mule" coins because a Proof die was used on circulation coins.
HOW TO TELL IF YOUR COIN IS A MULE:
The raised ring around the inner core on the reverse is missing.
