Just want to ask what is the rarest circulation coin you lot ever found in CRH in terms of mintage?

For me it is the 1925 Canadian Nickel with only 200,050 minted. Will post pictures when I get home.

Sorting through bags of British 2 coins, I've found two 2015 Jody Clark portrait / Britannia coins (mintage 650,000), four 2015 Royal Navy coins (mintage 650,000) and one 2011 King James Bible coin (mintage 975,000). The scarcest 50p I've found is the 2011 Olympic Wrestling (mintage 1,129.000).

Found my one and only Indian Head cent, an 1886 type 2, which is harder to find than type 1, not sure mintage or even month issued.

Do have fun tossing dateless Buffalos and cull Liberty nickels back into the pond..would toss a few cull Shields but they're smaller and would error out in sort. Some CRHer's gonna get a real rise!

Maybe not the single rarest but the rarest coins plural I found was at the Wells Fargo near my house. At face value I purchaced 11 rolls of 90% quarters and 6 rolls of 90% dimes.

I found a Henning nickel a few years ago. Not technically a official minted coin but I did pull it from a bank box.

A toss up between a 1900 Canadian dime and 1894 Barber half, both found via roll hunting.
When I listen to LED ZEPPELIN...so do my neighbors...
Roll hunting since '77
Dirt fishing since '72

I've found 2 1950D Jefferson nickels CRH. My rarest coins found. We also found a 1935 Canadian Penny, but I believe that is a 7mm mintage. Still rare to find that one in the US.

I'll go by denomination for "normal" circulating coins. Note: I don't actively search out Dollar coins.

Cent: 1970-S Small Date (Est. Mintage 1,750,000) - I've found two in my lifetime.
Nickel: 1921-S (Mintage 1,557,000)
Dime: 1949-S (Mintage 13,510,000)
Quarter: 1946-D (Mintage 9,072,800)
Halves: 1953 (Mintage 2,668,120)

In terms of actual mintage, the rarest coin I've found is the 2001-S Silver Proof that I got in a box this past summer. The mintage: 889,697.
CRH Nickeloholic. On the way to 1,000,000 nickels searched in two years! Already have found TWO complete Jefferson sets over that time!
