It doesn't look like there's a dedicated, in-use thread about roll hunting in Canada. This is my attempt at starting one, so that other Canadian searchers can see what's been found in their country rather than having to look through the mostly-American general threads.

Okay, I'll start.

Nickels:
- 1977 low 7
- 4 1945-2005 V-E Day commems
- A nice condition 1867 - 1992 double date (I pick one out and compare all the others I find to it as I go while replacing as needed, theoretically giving me the best one in the box by the end)
- 42 American nickels, the oldest being a markless 1952, also including 2 Louisiana Purchases and an Ocean in View
Dimes:
- A bunch of 2001 Volunteers that I haven't counted yet
- 43 American dimes
Quarters:
- 2 1973 Mountie quarters
- Over 70 assorted commemoratives, not including the Vancouver 2010 series (all of which were tossed back)
- 6 American quarters, including 1 State Quarter (Pennsylvania-P)
- The single roll that made me a believer: 6 silver 1867-1967 quarters!! Along with about 20 other assorted commemoratives, dated up to 2011. My theory is that these were saved by someone who collected commemoratives by habit but didn't know about silver quarters and the collection was eventually rolled up, since there were no other silver dates and they must have been rolled recently.



Be sure to post your American counts - I always wonder if Americans get as many Canadians as we do Americans...

For once I would love to roll hunt some Canadian material. Gives me a little break from the US stuff.

For some reason, they always seem to fizzle out except this one for cents...

I search primarily dimes here in the states, I get about one roll worth of Canadian dimes for every $500 in US that I search. I have over 100 silver Canadian dimes found roll hunting, from about 1938 and up, my favorite (and oldest dime find), being a 1900 sterling Canadian. I also find silver Canadian quarters, from change and roll hunting.
When I listen to LED ZEPPELIN...so do my neighbors...
Roll hunting since '77
Dirt fishing since '72

My first silver quarter was a Canadian '68, found during my CRH. And till this day my only silver quarter. If my research is right it's the last year for silver coinage for our neighbors up north and that year is 50%

If you keep posting your finds, others will join in. The US Nickels thread started as a personal project and the others joined in over time. It now has 393 pages.

Hey nala I'm in....

I do dimes and nickels and was doing small cents.

Since I started about a year and a half ago, with my dimes I have found about 2 1/2 rolls worth of silver averaging about 2-3 silver per box. Only 1 silver American found but usually get about 2 rolls worth of American per box. Oldest dime found was early 1930s. Cant remember exactly the date. Have an album on the go. Have filled it with 1940's to date with CRH alone.

Small cents. I searched these the last 6 months before they were pulled from circulation. Have found all years except 1923 to 1926. Have pulled enough of most dates to make over 70 complete albums from the late 30's to date and 1920 and 1921. The few from the 30's I was missing I bought to make the albums more complete. I have pulled a roll+ of American 1940's wheat cents, 1 roll+ of 1950's wheats and 1 roll+ worth of wheats dated from 1911 to 1939. Also found more than 3 rolls of American per box.

Nickels. Just started these about 6 weeks ago. I've looked through about 9 boxes so far. Have that album from 1922 to date almost filled already. Sitting on 7 rolls of nickels from the 1960's and 1 roll of 1940-1959 nickels. Found about 9 American nickels from 1940's and 1950's....no silver. I find about 30 American nickels per box.

I did pennies and nickels. I did it for about 2 years and recently stopped because literally all the banks in my city have refused to order even 1 box. I said I would pay to cover their costs but I would not pay an outrages 16 cents a roll. Nearly $8 a box some charge. And the mint is just taking the nickel nickels out like crazy. When I first started 2 years ago I would get at least 12 rolls now I am lucky to get 4 out of a box. Plus a lot of boxes are from coin machines which take it out too.

Yesterday I got to go through a family change jar. One of my young relatives was there and he kept sticking a magnet in the pile, spreading around all the dimes and messing up my count, so I showed him some magnetic and non-magnetic pennies and asked him to sort them. This kept him busy while I looked for silver. Eventually he started to be able to tell them apart by the "P" mark and the RCM mark. I didn't find anything, but ten minutes in he picked up a 2006-P non-magnetic penny and asked me why it wasn't sticking! I let him keep it but I might have to get it authenticated for him so he doesn't fingerprint it up.

Turns out most of my relatives hoard change in jars so I've been having fun lately. Today I got to keep a few commemoratives and one silver quarter (no silver dimes yet...) in return for manually rolling $300 in all denominations. At least my premiums are lower than CoinStar :I

On the way home, I got 100 pennies from a grocery store. Found a VF-looking 1958 (with some original lustre remaining around the letters!), a 1961 and a dime, so I made 9 cents today.

Here are the finds from the change jar:
- 4 more State Quarters
- South Korean 100 won! A quick search reveals its face value to be about 9 cents, but it has the exact size and weight of a quarter. Sounds like I should take a quick nip down to Seoul and get a few hundred thousand of these.
- 1967 rabbit nickel, always a keeper (along with only one 2005 V-E Day nickel)
- Westward Journey keelboat (P)
- 1940 quarter, nasty scratches on the caribou, I'd give it a FR-2. I first recognized it because it had George VI on the back, although he's so worn it looks like he has a mohawk.
- Roughriders loonie, worth keeping for the low mintage.
- 2 Knowledge toonies and a Nunavut toonie. Quite a lot of face I got for free! It's payment for rolling all the rest by hand, which is great because it's hard to resist spending commemorative toonies :(

Meanwhile, it's time to get an April bus pass, so I pumped the vending machine for loonies. Found a 2006 lucky loonie, but then I spent it on the aforementioned penny rolls. My priorities aren't very straight today but at least I fit a surprising amount of CRH into my schedule without even visiting a bank!

Yup. The picture of the obverse is a bit blurry, but the reverse turned out much better. You can really see George's punk-y hairstyle here.

I think I would give that an AG-3 scratched. Interesting how the 0 in the date is not nearly as worn as the 194.

Awesome find on the silver quarter

I have a small hoard of canadian nickel "nickels," dimes, and quarters from roll searching (strangely I've only found one plated steel canadian, and that was a cent) I always keep canadian coins, in fact I literally screamed when I found a 1968 dime in my change, (alas, t'was magnetic)
