mcshilling I read the COA it say 1 dollar coin. ok but what about a loonie. its like they left the loonie out. you know they should clean that little gun. that blows this coating on these coin. even that one dollar coin it still has some gold sprayed on the lower edge.
i have been given a contact in the mint. because I have been chosen. to be on a group at the mint to talk about coins. I have been told this metal is 3 ply brass on the woodpecker coin. he said this is more about the metal mixture. that was used to look silvery, its still brass.
These coins are reverse proof finish, see how the Queen is shiny and the background (field) is striated/lined frosted. This makes it a Specimen Strike. Specimen Set $49.95 Pileated WoodPecker. There are no security features on the Specimen Sets.
