Hi Canadian Coins,

For better or worse, ICCS is THE "name" for Canadian collectors. PCGS sells at a discount and (unfortunately) NGC is laughed at (like Accugrade in the US). I love buying NGC Canadian coins. The largest market for Canadian coins is Canada. In the US PCGS does very well and NGC does OK, especially at large auctions like Heritage.

Not to bug you Gys but I found a piece at a flea market thatI am pretty sure is a small bead would like to know , does the small bead have a flat rim ?
This vendor had 2 similar shape but one had a wide rim all the 65 small bead seem to have the wider rim . This coin had the wide rim is it possible this is a small bead the vendor was out to lunch on the prices would like to know , I would buy both but he was asking $70.00 for either to much to take a shot on.
Or how to get $70 .00 for a15$ coin.

If the rim is the answer why note the bead size

nice to see my comparison photo being reused
The OP's coin is pretty easy to spot, but one that should be verified.

Hello everyone! I found this wonderful forum via a google search and am hoping some of you can help me. I am an only child and lost both of my parents back in 2002. I have literally been paying to store all of their things ever since. Being a single mom of two, I have always had to maintain a full time job and so I am just now being able to go through everything little by little. I know I have come across a 1966 Canadian silver dollar. I have read all of the posts and can't figure out whether mine is a small beads or large beads nor do I have any clue where to go about taking it. I don't know why my father would have kept it if he knew that it was only worth $10 or so, it just wouldn't be something he would keep I don't think. For instance, another interesting find I have come across is a 1 oz Krugerrand. So I will download some pics I have taken and if someone could point me in the right direction as to where I could take it (maybe locally---Orlando,Fl) or what you think, I would REALLY appreciate it.

Hello hbennett8248 and welcome.

The silver dollar is a standard large bead variant. People often keep one coin from each nation that feel best represent that countries currency. I feel the 1966 Voyageur one dollar coin avidly represents the standard of Canadian decimal coinage.

The Krugerrand is also the first thing that comes to mind when I consider South African currency for example.

I inherited several 1966 Canadian Silver Dollars. They are in mint condition, stored in plastic coin containers/tubes. I'm getting conflicting information on "small" bead and "large" bead, although this forum has been an excellent resource. First, I'm not quite sure why the deceased would have purchased and kept these particular coins (purchased from Monex)if not for investment purposes, thus why I feel the coins are "small" beads. The 2010 North American Coins & Prices, David C. Harper Editor, book shows a different pic of the "small" bead coin than what is shown in this forum. The "dealer" edition of this book shows the same pic (a dealer out of Johnstown, PA). If the pic was a misprint, is there a notification of such? Thank you!!
