Hi all,

I just found a Canadian 2006 5c piece that is missing the logo. I have looked at references for this and it seems a genuine variety, but if this is the case, why is it not listed as such in Numista?

Thanks

I'm aware of at least 3 varieties of that coin. 2 are magnetic, of which one had the Maple leaf logo and the other has P (for plated I believe), and then there is a non magnetic version with no logo. They are KM#491 and KM#491b respectively.

It is listed in Numista.
It's KM#149b.
The variety missing from Numista is the logo variety.
Do not use Numista as a reference for Canadian coins, as you have learned here it is confusing and incomplete, no Canadian collector would use it.
A far superior reference is this site; https://www.coinsandcanada.com/coins-prices.php

The logo variety is covered here. They represent the RCM logo with a "L".

Mentioned but not listed as a separate variety, which it is.
I stand by what I said, Numista is confusing and incomplete.

Thanks for all the responses. My fault for not reading far enough to realize the no-logo variety is on a different planchet and thus gets an entry of its own. All cleared now.

Yes, it's certainly not perfect.

Thanks for the link above too, I have saved that.
I need to get some more coins from Canada.

if you just want a quick reference check I agree, coinsandcanada is a great resource.

but if you want to help other collectors then please do use numista and add the missing content yourself. most of the data there has been submitted by the user base, and it is a really good comminuty to be a part of
