!972 Oversized Nickel

Postby Alphadiver » Fri Jan 13, 2017 9:46 am

So, searching through my coins I ran across what I thought was a quarter. It was too small to be a quarter, so I thought it might be foreign. Upon further review, I noticed it was a 1972 candian nickel. I noticed immediatley that it was bigger than every other nickel. I measured it beside other nickels and sure enough it is bigger - not quite as big as a quarter, but bigger than a regular nickel.

Can anyone tell me why I have a nickel that is bigger than every other nickel I can find and why there is no info anywhere on the internet?
