1969 C on the Canoe

I examined a number of 1969 dollar coins this weekend and I found four coins that seem to have the letter C on the canoe in the exact same location and orientation. It is exactly the same on each coin so I have ruled out post mint damage. It is very subtle but when the light hits it right it shows u...

2021 Bluenose Struck Through Grease, Rigging, 37 coins

Going through the two 2021 Bluenose mint boxes, I found another struck through grease sequence/progression. It is in close proximity to the struck through grease, C in cents, progression post I uploaded a few months back. It is on the rigging of the Bluenose near the c in cents and consists of 37 co...

Re: Mintage of 2017 cions

I have questioned these 2017 mintages too. I have only found one 2017 common loon coin and no 2017 polar bear coins in the wild. I also question the mintages for the regular version of the 2017 five cent coin at 106,680,000 as I have only found one in the wild. Are there any other coin roll hunters ...

Re: 1954 Unregistered Replacement note

I was wondering if there is a reason this wasn't added to the asterisk banknotes database or if it was just missed. Thanks.

Re: 1999 Polar Bear

I wrote "I assume they were never circulated" because this website usually states "was originally struck for PL and SP products, therefore not intended for circulation" like the 1997,1998,1999, 2000 and 2001 loonies. Since I posted this I checked the Royal Canadian Mint website and it confirmed they...

1999 Polar Bear

I found this 1999 Polar Bear, coin roll hunting. This website indicates 117,318 coins minted so I assume they were never circulated?
It has been well circulated but I decided to put it in a flip and hang onto it anyway because of the lower mintage.

Re: 2012 $2 HMS Shannon with extra sail

In 2012 you could buy a 5-Pack from the mint for $10.00. I had a look through the one I bought and found one with an "extra sail". Interesting that only one coin had the "extra sail" in the package and the rest are normal.

1963 Double to Triple Hanging 3 Progression

I have been going through some 1963 1 cent uncirculated rolls I got at my local back. There seems to be a progression from a double hanging 3 (dies struck each other twice) to the coin after the dies struck each other for a third time forming the triple hanging 3 coin. Photo 1 Double hanging 3 coin ...

2021 Bluenose Box, collecting thoughts

Last year I ordered some boxes of dimes from my bank and to my surprise I received 2 sealed boxes of 2021 Bluenose mixed rolls (colour and non-colour). One box I opened and searched and found a struck through grease progression that I posted on this site. Since it was the first time in Canadian hist...
