This is a genuine die shift error. Somehow, either the die was not properly fixed in the press, or - more likely - the press part holding the die was worn, so that the die had some freedom to move. After the strike, the die jumped, turning slightly, making a second, rotated impression. While genuine mint errors are relatively uncommon, there is little demand for them. Yet, they are good and interesting illustrations of Murphy's law, applied to minting coins.
