  No wonder I've had a tough time finding 2013 toonies.  I've found a couple but its nothing compared to all those 2013 loonies!  :D  Thanks for posting the numbers  :)

Picked up $14 in nickels today and found the following coins:

1 x 1960, 62, 63
3 x 1964
7 x 1965-69
28 x 1970-79
4 x 1980-81
34 x 1982-89
41 x 1990-99

USA x 16
Commemoratives: 
3 x 1992
1 x 2005

One roll was completely composed of pre 1982 nickels!  Looks like someone emptied out their piggy bank...

Also got a brief glimpse of a 54 $1000.  The teller was JUST about to sell it to me but then the head teller gave her the standard line "we cannot circulate those anymore..."  I couldn't get the serial number before it was whisked away from me.  It looked to be an EF/AU BOUEY RASMINSKY note!  :(

Happy hunting,
Dean

Hi,

Here is what I found out of $40 in nickels this week:

1942
1960
1961

2 x 1962
8 x 1963-64
9 x 1965-69
37 x 1970-79
8 x 1980-81
41 x 1982-89
49 x 1990-99

Commemoratives
2 x 1992
10 x 2005

USA
11  (including 1 x 1956)

Foreign
Bahamas 1994 25 cents

Special
1 x 2000P

Also managed to salvage a multicoloured $1 and a roll of pennies form the bank when I picked up this batch. 

1942 is my oldest nickel found in a coin roll.   I hope to eventually come across a George V nickel or w war nickel some day.  The 1967 centennial rabbits are almost non-existent.  I wonder what happened to them all?

Happy hunting,
Dean

1942

  Is the 1942 nickel made of tombac or nickel?  It was made in both metals that year.  The tombac one will be a brownish color and 12 sided while the nickel one will be grey and round.

  The 1967 centennial rabbits are almost non-existent.  I wonder what happened to them all?

  Funny because everyone in my family says the same thing.  Some people say they were already hard to find when they first released them.  :D

Hello PoP,

No, the '42 is the plain old nickel variety.  A tombac version would have been quite the find!

I have only obtained TWO centennial rabbits since I started CRH nickels in January of this year.  I have found more 2000P nickels than I have '67 rabbits!

Regardless of what I get, CRH is still fun and there are lots of coins to be found out there!

Happy Hunting,
Dean

I have on occasion gotten the 67 rabbit in my change and i have noticed that aswell that there doesn't seem to be many around even though it was a decent mintage rate for 1967. I think the reason is that many people kept them much like the 1967 $1 series. Many years back i came across a bag containing about 90 1967 25¢ pieces. They were all very heavily circulated and don't grade better than VG-8.

I found this a couple weeks ago. I was ecstatic since I've been meaning to buy /acquire one of these errors for quite awhile.

That is a nice error, Wizard1!

Here is what I managed to find from my banks this week:

Out of 2 rolls of pennies:

1 x 1953
1 x 1962
2 x 1964

1 x UK 1 penny 1999
1 x Gibraltar 1 penny 1995

Out of $70 in nickels:

2 x 1953 Near leaf, Shoulder fold (from 2 different banks !)

coin #1:


coin # 1:


coin # 2:


coin #2:


1 x 1960
2 x 1962
7 x 1965-69
21 x 1970-79
9 x 1980-81
39 x 1982-89
40 x 1990-99

Commemoratives:
1 x 1992
9 x 2005

USA x 16
1 Canadian 10 cents.

I also managed to score the following banknotes:

1 x 1975 $100


AND...

FINALLY after MONTHS of searching... A Macklem-Carney $5!  I got this when I dumped off my nickel rolls and asked for fivers in return...Wow, these are hard to get...A G/VG at best but still a keeper.  HAG 5986108 15/37





 
Happy Hunting!   :)

nice finds Dean.
I managed to get an HAJ earlier this year. I will continue hanging onto it. Though many say these 5's are hard to find, they seem to be widely available here in Quebec. I have seen quite a few HAFs and HAGs. One purchase earlier this year, i got 3 fives all were of macklem-carney.

  Well it's been a while since I last searched through some rolls of nickels, actually rolls of any coins to be honest but I found some time and decided to search some.  I picked up 40$ worth of nickels.  I found:

Pre 1981: 11 + 1 1961  12 sided nickel
1982-2000: 32

American: 5

2000 P: 2

  The amount of pre 1981 nickels was low though finding the 2 2000 P made up for it I guess.  :)

  I was quite surprised at the low amount of pre 1981, I would usually get on average 3-4 per roll as late as last year.  Though this could just be an out of the ordinary-slightly lower than usual batch.

  I got really lucky today and got a 1941 nickel in change from the corner store!  :)

  It's been a while since I got a coin with a king on it in change, I didn't even have to search any rolls to get it.  Always check your change folks!  ;)

  Hi everyone!  I picked up 60$ in nickels this week and this is what I got:

Pre 1981: 30 + 5x1964  1x1962  2x1960  1x1942 (nickel not tombac)
1982-2000: 79

American: 14 + 1x1964  1x1962 D  1x1942 (cupronickel not silver)

2000 P: 3

  Both 1942 coins came from the same roll which I found cool.  Overall I'd say it was a very successful hunt in terms of older coins found.  :)

Hi,

I had a fantastic day at the bank today...Picked up some nickel dollars and fifty cent pieces but also a nice load of banknotes!

$1000 bill 1988
2 x EFA multicoloured $50s both have writing on them :(
5 x 1979 $20 with one "516" replacement!  Too bad it's the one with a huge teller stamp and writing on it!  :(
1 x 1973 $1
1 x 1976 US $2

Check it out!
