Found 10 eurocents on the ground today (France, 2011), inside a building. I'd guess AU-55. First euro coin I own with the new map style. I wonder how it got to Canada in such great condition?

I also found a silver Irish shilling in a 20-cent world coin bin but that's neither here nor there :D

Amazing find at the bank! I returned a box of dimes (nothing interesting except an overstuffed roll, so I made 50 cents) and the teller pulled out a Warman Canadian cent folder for me. Apparently it was a Secret Santa present she never used. I've been having lots of fun filling it in from my giant penny jar :D

I've been through about a dozen boxes of laundry tokens (err I mean quarters) in the past month. So far I've pulled out 8 silver quarters, $110 worth of US quarters (need to repatriate those..), 122 RCMP 100th anniversary (1973), various 25 cents from Bermuda, Cayman Islands, and Bahamas, and a few 10 pence peices. Also 2 rolls with pubic hair (gross!!) and one that had jam or some other mystery sticky substance inside.
My best box was rolled by 4GS (2 silvers) and worst 2 boxes were also from 4GS, completely void of anything interesting. I thought they were supposed to participate in the alloy recovery program so I was really surprised at silver and quantity of US quarters in the first box.
I also lucked out in finding a branch that is near a university so they constantly need more tokens for laundry and are happy when I come in to dump my sorted boxes. Another great place to dump coin you're done with is the new CoinStar machines that the TD Canada Trusts are putting in nearly all their banks, free for customers!

After checking out this forum for a month I decided last week to buy $500 in quarters (a box). My adult son and I collect Canadian coins (pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters) but have not updated our collections in at least ten years.
We were simply looking for stuff we did not have. In those 2,000 quarters we only found one silver one but it was one my son and I both needed. [He got it since he found it].
We did find many quarters from the late 90's and forward that we needed so it was fun and worthwhile. I am sure we will do it again but there are not many post-silver quarters that we still need so I expect the pickings to be slimmer next time.

Went from store to store asking for penny rolls today. Found two. Oldest was 1958, along with three LMCs.

I had 5 quarter rolls and wanted to get 5 new quarter rolls, a two-step process involving a bit of a walk. At one bank, I got two loonie rolls for my five quarter rolls, and at the next bank I would do the reverse. But I had to search the loonie rolls first, and bam - 2012 old-style in the very first roll! I can't believe I found one of those in the very first loonie roll I've ever searched.

Another nickel box, finally found something worthwhile - 1949, my first KGVI find in a nickel roll. Of course, one of my family members beat me last year by bringing home a 1940 in their change, grr. I also pulled 6+ rolls of nickel nickels which are going towards my big huge eBay lot, just one 1967 nickel (I keep these separately because I like the rabbit) and 15-odd 2005 commemoratives. There was also about half a roll of American, but nothing spectacular, the oldest being a couple 1964s.

Got 40 rolls of pennies from the bank today. 79 american cents 1982 and prior including a 1944 Wheat penny. Best find by far was a 1934 George V penny. Probably about a VF-20. Also found a 1940, 1943, 1952 and 7 1967's among others. Foreign coins included a 2 pfennig, British one penny and a 1 cent coin from South Africa.

Picked up 25 rolls of nickels today. Also went through the pennies again and picked out a 1972 with what looks like a double clipped planchet and a couple more 1967's.

Had some good luck with the nickels. Nine of the rolls were paper machine wrapped rolls which I knew would hold nothing so I really only had 16 rolls to work with. Nine of these remaining rolls had to have been rolled up in 2000/2001 because in all 9 rolls I only found 1 2001 and a few 2000's, everything else was older. In total the 16 rolls resulted in 129 1981 and earlier which is just over a 20% yield of pure nickel!. Ten of them were young Elizabeth and the two oldest were 1962 and 1959.

Here are my penny finds! They were being saved by one of my family members to play some arcane card game. I only took these, the rest are free to be used as chips or whatever for the rest of time.

Okay, first I found this lovely 1991 woodie. Both sides have a nice grain to them. I don't collect these, so I'll entertain offers on this one.


Then I found this 1979 (looks pretty red). I found a redder one a few weeks back, but I'm always game for a shiny penny.


Here's a weird counterstamp, the first stamped coin I've ever seen in circulation:


These two dates now have a place of honour in my Warman small cent folder:


Finally, this impaired proof wasn't exactly found in circulation, but it jumped its capsule in an MS/Proof bin and soon settled to the bottom, desperately trying to get as scratched-up as possible in a futile effort to be more like its circulated friends. Since it's not a silver proof and it's not perfect anymore, I got it for 1 cent.
