another subtle indoctrination, social engineering undertaking as 'we'
marshall our resolve to War against the Jihad

I think it was done on purpose in order to get people more interested in the coins. They have tried unsuccessfully few times previously to get the public to give up the paper dollars. What better way to get people interested than to introduce thousands of error coins to get people to get the coins just to try and find some error coins. And if my theory is correct, I think it is brilliant marketing strategy.
