*** Moved by Staff to a more appropriate forum. ***

I'm very new and I wanted to get info about mint rolls. Say I have a roll of sacagewea dollars from 2000 p and I was looking for the popular wounded eagle coin my question is are the 25 coins in the roll could there be multiple wounded eagles or any error for that particular coin and year because the mint rolls are for circulation correct? I'm just using the sacagewea as reference because that is the only big error I know about at the moment. I feel extremely dumb asking this but I'm trying to learn so I hope I explained everything correct for my question I'm asking!

I think your question needs clarification. I'm not sure, exactly, what you are asking.

A BU roll may or may not contain one or more errors/varieties. The coins get minted by more than one press and all coins get dumped into a bin,so they do get mixed.

Searching through bank rolls of any denomination can produce any number of errors and or varieties not to mention old or very high grade coins .

Ummm............don't mean to be a downer,, but, this is a Canadian thread. All you Americans looking to move north? .

We don't see many BU American rolls up here. Our rolls from the mint cost ridiculous $. Better to get them from the bank at face.

And With T-BOP, you'll find the nicer coins this way, but errors will take a while. That's in a BU roll, not a customer rolled roll, then it's a crap shoot. Which I prefer..

I moved it to the US variety and error section... perhaps some modern variety hunters can help out from here.

Yes there COULD be, but MUCH MUCH more likely there will be absolutely nothing of any extra value in them.

Look at it this way, they made 767,140,000 2000 P sac dollars that's 30,686,000 rolls. If the wounded eagle die ran for it full average life span ( and it probably didn't) that would be about 750,000 coins. If they were evenly mixed among all the 2000 P coins you would expect to find ONE in every 41 rolls. Since they aren't evenly spread if you did find a roll with one you would be more likely to find more than one coin in the roll, but you would have to go through a LOT more rolls to find that one that had more than one in it. Probably a few hundred rolls. And that would be solid rolls directly from the mint.

I am currently searching rolls from 2011,2014,2018 and 2019D.
I purchased the 2011, the rest I got from the bank. I had the 2014 stashed for a while and finally broke down and and started searching them. I have had the same results with each dates, zip! BU roll searching is a gamble. Most of the time you find nothing. But when you do find something you will usually find many. You must weigh risk vs reward. The rolls you get from the bank have zero risk because you pay face value.

And when you buy a box, all the rolls are pretty much the same. If nothing is found in the first few rolls, the rest will likely be just like them. All depends on when they are struck, how many machines were running and how they are mixed now in pallet bags. Also, the boxes are time stamped. So of you have boxes with all the same date/time, your probably going to be seeing coins from the same batches from that pallet.

I usually start with rolls that have reverse on both ends.If nothing shows you can always toss some onto Ebay and try to make a few bucks.
