I recently picked up a 2015 loonie. I could not help but notice that the finish on it is much more eye catching than the finishes on the prior years with similar designs.

Anyone else feel the same?
I Have a 2015 loonie, looks just like the previous years. Did not notice any difference.

Keep hunting those rolls...

I picked up a couple of rolls of pennies from a friendly bank teller at my local branch.  He also let me have 2 UNC Journey $5 and 1 AU Birds $50 that were also loitering in the cash cage!

It's been awhile since I have posted on the forum but I recently acquired a very large lot of Canadian coins and thought I would share with you Dean.

Of the $150 in face that I had received half was quarters of no significance... another $20 in dimes which also didn't give up much... but I just finished sorting the nickels....

1922 F
1922 VG
1924 VG
1924 VG
1929 F
1930 F
1930 F
1931 F
1937 DOT VF
1937 DOT F
1937 DOT F
1938  F
1944 VF
1945 VF
1954 AU
1951 EF
1960 UNC
1963 AU
1968 UNC
1969 UNC
1977 UNC
1986 UNC


Plus 7 rolls of nickels I will still have to sort for varieties from 1940-1989

Hey Shylo,

That's quite the treasure trove of vintage nickels you've found.  I've always liked the 1922-36 nickels.

Just yesterday, I got 5 rolls of pre 1981 nickels from my local bank.  Mostly from the 1970's but still a cool find.  The teller also let me have 5 1971 tens, 2 Birds $2 and a Birds $5.  Not bad for a Friday!  :)

It just goes to show you that there is still treasure lurking out there if you're willing to look for it!

Keep hunting those rolls!  I enjoy reading about what other people find in their coin rolls.

Hi,
I've been neglecting this thread for quite some time!  :)

Yesterday, the teller at my local bank gave me a 1967 dime.  It's not much, but it's rare to see any silver at all these days!
