nickel pressed into penny

Post by elmo86 » Tue Jun 01, 2021 3:30 am

I'm super new to this, please bare with me.
i've got what appears to be the same size, weight, and i'm assuming material as a penny.. only it's pressed with the canadian nickel design. I've had it for some time now, just thought it was neat.
I hope the attachments work,.
Any info would be great! (Wondering if anyone else has come across one/ Value if any) Much appreciated.

They are very collectable I don't know a lot about them either other than yes they are cool coins a member on this forum SPP could tell you all about it as he collects this kind of material.
Hopefully he will see this and comment on it as for pricing I think $150.00 + for these if graded probably more?

I understand it's the same size and weight as a penny.
Is it magnetic or not?

Great find! :D

I'm surprised there are still some coins like that out there that you can find (if you are lucky).

3.15g non mag... but neither the 86 nickel or 86 penny were magnetic (and it's weight sits around middle)... im thinking maybe foreign
