I like Morgans way more than Peace dollars, especially in MS. I have no desire to collect Peace dollars.

hfjacinto, when you put your mind to something, it gets done, doesn't it? Nice set of Peace dollars you have there! I have admired all of your collections, they are really nice!

After you finish off the Dancing Lady halves and the Roaming animal nickels, I'll help you with Canadian small cents if you'd like. They can't be plucked from circulation for you, but they are a nice (and easy) set to compile. Let me know if you'd like to give them a go. I am certain your local coin shop can help with an album and a few of the tougher dates, but there really aren't too many difficult ones. Think on it and let me know.

@merclover I'm a little (welll maybe more than a little ) ocd. It helps that I have a friend that has a lot of completed collections and lots of extras. He usually gives me a head start. I would love to do a Canadian series I have enough duplicates that I could help you complete a type set if you want. I have examples of most 20th century coins. Let's talk :)

I was in Canada a few times for pleasure and work. My family love Roots clothing :) and I can even speak Canadian Eh!

Pardon the interruption, but depending on where hfjacinto lives in the USA, he can still find Canadian small cents in circulation and by coin roll hunting. I find one at least every month, I'm in northern Ohio.

I put together a mostly complete set from around 1950 onward years ago from CRH.


In fact, I have oodles of them if any one needs any.

I don't do CRH and I rarely if ever get a cent in change. I used to travel to Canada a lot for work but I always used credit card. For any that I am missing I would have to buy them :(

Northern Ohio shares a border with Ontario so Canadian cents in bank rolls probably are more common for you than hfjacinto in NJ. I am in central Ohio and Canadian coins are showing up less and less here, from, I think, banks cracking down on accepting them. In searching through boxes of cents I see, maybe, one or two Canadian cents per box. It certainly would be difficult (but not impossible) to assemble to a set of 1950-2012 Canada cents... even at that, it would take a long time. Older Canadian cents, pre-1950 would take even longer, dare I say, nearly impossible through pocket change or bank roll searching.

Even in Ontario, banks and merchants don't want to deal in cents, they round transactions up or down, avoiding cents altogether in many occasions. Banks in the States won't take Canadian coins at all (some throw them out as trash), and many banks even in Canada don't want to deal with them as well. Walk into a bank in Canada and ask for any pennies in any form, rolls or even a small handful, and chances are you'll walk away cent-less. As we all know, Canada stopped producing cents in 2012, and Canadian cents are slowly disappearing from circulation on both sides of the border.

Agreed that since he is in NJ, he is less likely to find them than I am in N Ohio.

There is a large amusement park in my county, at one time they accepted Canadian currency at par, even when local banks discounted it. (Long time ago obviously).

During that time, I worked in a bar. On the regular, Canadian sailors from the coal boats would come in to drink. They spent money like, well, like drunken sailors. One of them always complained about our currency being all the same color, making it difficult to determine its value in the dark bar. He sure did tip well.

Living as I do here in Minnesota (a/k/a Baja Canada), I usually expect to see a handful of Canadian coins when I CRH.

Unfortunately, bald old men will never be considered attractive. The people recognized on those coins had significant accomplishments, but at the time people figured that the only way to recognize them was with a large unattractive looking bust. It could have been done another way, but was not.

Modern commemorative coins seem to be more flexible in how they honour people.

I personally like pretty women on my coins but that's me.
