Re: 1912 $5 gold Canadian coin

Was that in Canadian or US dollars? You paid close to full Trends for it. Usually you can get coins at shows or brick and mortar for 70-80% of Trends, unless it's a scarcity.

You should wait until the Spring Coin Expo in T.O. to do your shopping/trading. You can have your choice of more than a few dealers, see the coins in hand, and make your best deal. The 3 coins that you want are readily avalable.

New Hamilton Coin Society

The inaugural meeting for the Hamilton, ONT coin club was tonight, 7 Jan. There were 22 charter members there and I hope that this will fill a void for the Golden Horseshoe area collectors that have been without a club for about 15 years. Here's hoping that a few more join in the fun.... the 30 mile...

Re: 1949 50 cents

"pg in rh" is the 50 cent guru and has done extensive research on the 50 cent for years. He lives North of T.O., don't think that he is a member of this site. He wrote the 50 cent variety section for Charlton, but he had to pare down the 100's of Geo/Liz silver pieces. I'll contact him wit...

Re: 1859 cent

Thank you gidgit ... I had forgotten all about the guy with the $15,000 coin that was, in his eyes, a sure winner. See you at the inaugral Hamilton Coin Club meeting in a week?

Just go on Ebay and look for Canada 25 cent 2010 NBU and you'll see what the RCM calls coins.

On 2nd thought, it's probably one the the myriad of Olympic crapola that the RCM tried to push on unsuspecting folks for the Winter Olympics. Still, the Rev design removed by hand.

Re: Can't find another like it! Any insight appreciated!

I think that you'll have to look in a Charlton Vol 2 for all of the RCM's commem crap. It's not a normal circulation issue. If it was wear from the tin box, the Rev rims would be worn as well, not just the design.

Just from the scratches and areas "off" in color, it appears to have been ground down, maybe with a burnishing tool. What is the weight?

Re: canadian pennies

Prices are set by supply and demand. There are infinitely more coins out there (and for the next 50-60 years) than there ever will be collectors wanting any. Higher grade cents will have some numismatic value, but there is no correlation to the alloy recovery program.
