2002 colourized loonie

A few years ago I received this loonie in some loose change. I had never (or since) seen one like it. I contacted the RCM who said it was not one of there's. I finally contacted this forum who gave me a lead on Ebay. The seller had only seen one and he didn't know where it came from. A local coin de...

Green mold on copper coims

Hi, I was recently given $13 of relatively new cents (1960's to 2011). Most of them have green mold spots or major cases of the copper mold.

How do I get rid (clean up) this contamination. Does anyone have a home brew that will
stop the deterioration of the coins.

Thanx in advance

Re: 1952-2002 colourized loonie

Thanx for tip on Ebay. You made my day, nice to get lucky sometimes and find a rarity /
odd coin and the price was right, zero.

J am going to contact the seller on Ebay and see if he knows anything.

Got this loonie in my change and I cannot find reference to it, it looks legit. Is it a authenic
RCM coin? Any guidance would be appreciated.

Re: 1975 dime - broadstrike ?

Thanks for the modified comment, I can see the reeds being 'machined or ground off', but how do you make the edge thicker?
