Found this in the reject bin at the bank while dumping coins. Was pretty stoked.

Nice. I usually look in the trash bin next to the coin counter many times I find coins in there, mostly foreign and a bunch of Canadian.

Throwing away a coin dated 1850 because a coin counter rejects it. Sound like Rule #7 was in force.

Awesome find!! The good news is that a collector recovered it and not the trash.

It was in the reject tray attached to the machine. It is not the internal reject bin. It's a chute that dumps into a tray on the outside of the machine and the machine even tells you to check for rejected coins! Ha

Found 1968 silver canadian too. Lucky day
