I was wondering what your Canadian/Wheat Cent average is for a box of pennies, your Canadian/Buffalo average for a box of pennies, and your Canadian/Silver average is for halves. I did $380 in halves yesterday and got Zip, Zero, and Nada all in one box! (sarcasm intended)

Canadian average largely depends on location. Many northern states get many, but here in southern california they are not too common.

My averages are:

7.7 wheats per box of cents.
1 Indian Head cent per 43 boxes of cents.
2.77 canadians per box of cents.
1 buffalo every 3.38 boxes of nickels.
1 canadian per every 1.41 boxes of nickels.

Haven't done boxes of halves, I just get silver sometimes from teller trays. And I've never seen a canadian half?

I'd say I average about 10 wheats and 8 Canadian per box (in Indiana).

I have only searched half dollars and have never found a Canadian from a bank-obtained roll. But they do show up in local 'junk silver' bins very frequently.

I live in northern Washington state and I average about 35 Wheats per box and probably 150 Canadians. In doing nickels I average 1 Canadian per 2.6 rolls and 1 buffalo per 15 rolls.
