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.

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.

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!

I got a 2017 10 cent piece in change today...Only the second one I've ever encountered.
Are people hoarding these coins?  I've only ever received one nickle and now two dimes from my change in several months.

I just picked up $55 in customer rolled pennies from my local bank.  I can't wait to see what's in them!  Stay tuned.

The 2017 coins all have very low mintage compared to all other years. So far i have only found a 2017 dollar and surprisingly a colored 2 dollar in my change.

Hi,

I received a colourized D-Day $2 coin in change today.  Should I keep it?

I believe the d-day colored is more common than the non-colored as per mintage numbers (2,000,000 vs 1,000,000). Please correct me if im wrong.

Today, picked up the new 2020 Bill Reid, Circulating $2 Coloured Coin, from my local RBC Bank Branch.  It is gorgeous!!!



The Royal Canadian Mint has launched a new toonie to commemorate the legacy of Haida artist Bill Reid, more than 20 years after his death.

The new $2 coin, which marks 100 years since Reid's birth, enters circulation Tuesday.


"The mint is delighted to add the story of Bill Reid's pivotal role in raising awareness of Haida art, and the traditions and culture it represents to the long list of circulation coins celebrating what makes us proud to be Canadian," said Marie Lemay, president and CEO of the Royal Canadian Mint in a written statement.

  Smile from your heart.  ;D

I'm surprised you managed to get any... It is pretty much impossible for me to get new coin anywhere in the city these days as no banks order new coins and just recycle the old stuff from branch to branch.

It’s good to have friendly bank tellers share their inside scoop. From what I heard, branches only received 100 rolls.

  Smile from your heart.  ;D

2000 "P" x 4
2001 no "P" x 14
2001 "P" *Only ONE found!

Happy Hunting!
Dean
