I've seen a lot of questions and posts on coins. I was told by oldtimers that I need to understand the process of how coins are made.

This 5 minute video is from the discovery channel on YouTube
It shows the process of minting a Canadian proof coin and it shows a lot of the key stages from start to finish.

If this has been posted before on here I apologize, I looked but did not find it.

I wish there was a video of the US coins being made that we use for circulation. It could help explain some what are and what could not be mint errors.
It could also show why some uncirculated coins are MS70 and some end up being MS60 when a bank roll is cracked open.

I do wish there was one for USA coins. This was very good and informative.

This is a great TV show up here in Canada. This particular episode reminded me about my 1 cent collection I made as a child. I pulled it out of storage and have been adding to it ever since. Great episode and fortunate timing.

I just found a youtube video of Canadian coins being minted too, looks different from the Discovery channel one above? :) along the side on the page are other videos listed that you can view, including a US coins one :) I haven't looked at it yet though, but here is the page link for the video I just watched:

This is pretty interesting. There are lots of other videos as well. Great to actually be able to see the process rather than just reading about it.
