General discussions about canadian coins.

Could someone share their knowledge with me? I have a roll of 1992 quarters (Newfoundland) that were obtained from a bank and put away as a gift for my son who was born that year. What grade would these be? They were never opened and I am told that is how they come to the bank from the mint but I don't know if that is true or not. They are shrink wrapped in clear plastic film and inside a clear plastic tube that has a raised 25 cent symbol and bumps like feet or spacers on one side. Is that actually how the mint sends new coins to banks? If so, it is true that these were never opened. Are they then considered "uncirculated" or are they circulation coins that have not yet been used? Thanks for your help!
That is the way they are shipped out of the Mint.They are uncirculated and usually grade from MS-60 to 65 if you are lucky you get a couple of 65 which are valued at $60 in CCN trend section.The average shoiuld be 63 at $1.50 each.
Thanks for the information! Are they more valuable if we keep the roll sealed like that? They can't be graded without opening but I don't want to open them if that could compromise their status of being uncirculated.
