Genuine 1982 5 cents coin with extra "Dot"on Parliament

On 28-5-2012, I posted an article about a counterfeit  1982 5 cents coin with extra "Dot"on Parliament House. It was formed by a punch on the Parliament House, around the 'Dot' is an incused circle.

Last Sunday, I was given another piece of Post Mint Job (PMJ) 1982 5 cents coin with extra "Dot"on Parliament House coins.
