Canadian?
Maybe British?

To the best of my knowledge post-confederation Canadian coinage looks like this:
- 1 cent (cent as opposed to penny; cent was actually french term for 1/100th of a dollar - I recently learned this)
- 5 cent
- 20 cent; one year only, I'd love to have one some day
- 25 cent
- 50 cent
- 1 Dollar (1935+)

Pence on the other hand (I only recently learned this too) is the plural form of penny - and to the best of my knowledge this was used for Great Britian, and a few Dominion countries like Australia...
My "want" list is HERE

I thought I should let you know that our friend @Commems is offline for a while. I'm sure he will reply when able.

My receiver never posted but their name is not on the list. Must not have been a very good gift. I'll do better next year.
With all these Barbers around, you'd think I'd have shorter hair.

Some people may just like to fly under the radar. I would t take it too personal. It's all in good faith and fun. You did great!

I feel bad for those who remain on the "unreceived" list.

Of the outstanding members to receive,
most of the items being sent to you are from Foreign countries and It "appears" that they have been sent.
I am trying to monitor this without pestering people so please be patient
remember the postal service in other countries is not always fast/efficient/honest

Please be patient
And if anyone is feeling generous I have one more person who sent out a gift but no one was assigned to send them a gift.
Enjoy what is left of the weekend if you are not snowed in as is much of the US.

Hi, my name is MikeF and I'm a degenerate coin collector. I also like adventure, big trucks, long walks on the beach and the Kansas City Chiefs.
