A mated pair is a major mint error. Two or more coins enter a minting machine and they get struck at the same time. The mated pair share one image of the coin design, split amongst both coins. Then the incredible journey begins. The coins leave the minting press, and head towards bagging. Typically there are 9-15 minting presses operational, making coins. Its an incredible feat when mated coins are within the same bag and are found together.
