1952-2002 colourized loonie

Postby coindabbler » Sun Jun 02, 2013 5:00 am

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.

You got one of these in your change?! Nice find.

I saw this coin sell quite recently for $32.65. Click here.

I know nothing else about it, other than the colour registration is horrendous, and in the printing industry we would consider this totally unacceptable — in other words, a misprinted reject. The registration of your loonie looks a little better but the red is still out by a mile. IMHO, I can't imagine that the RCM intentionally released these.

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.

Glad to be of help. Let us know what you can find out.

But honestly, to tell you the truth....


methinks the loonatics have taken over the asylum.

Hello,
contacted Ebay seller, has no additional information other than to say that he see's
one or two a year.

Also contacted RCM, waited 30 minutes to talk to a person and then got transferred and waited some more. RCM people were nice, but no help. They suggested contacting more than one coin dealer. They could not go back to 2002 records.

Long story short, no further ahead.

apparently another coin collector told me that it was made from First commemorative MINT.

That would make sense because a lot of coin collection that he gave me came from that MINT.

Happy to see that it is rare thought.

thanks
