Thanks for sharing. I love the fact that all the Newfoundland silver coinage is sterling silver. It is known how many were made at the time, but because of a lot of the coins being melted down for their silver content, it would be intriguing to know how rare my coins really are.

Funny, I have an 1854 Bank of Upper
Canada cent that's holed also. I've seen four or five in my
life, and they were all holed.

Did they come from the mint that way?
LOL

I haven't gotten around to purchasing any Newfoundland coins yet, but I did find a nice 1947 Newfoundland penny in a roll recently :)

I bought a collection of 50c 1904-1919 last year, and got hooked. I have most of the 10c,5c from the 1940's in good shape. I have both 25c and I have 3 Victorian 50c. I also have some of the large 1c and I believe I have all of the small 1c. I also have one 1882 gold $2.00. All in all I have about 70 NFLD coins with some doubles in the 50c and 25c:)I look forward to adding to my collection in the future. I also like collecting RCM products and I have begun collecting Canadian silver 50c pieces. My safe is getting too small;)

Added to my small Newfoundland coin collection today (just couldn't help myself). 1907 50c, 1872 10c, 1890 5c and 1894 5c.

Now Have:
50 Cents - 1907,1908,1911,1917,1919
25 Cents - 1917
10 Cents - 1872,1894,1919,1938,1941,1945
5 Cents - 1890,1894,1929,1938,1940,1941,1942,1943,1944,1945
1 Cent - 1920

Not really focusing on completing one particular set just adding here and there when the mood strikes.

The $2 Gold set is a solid investment, any way you slice it. People love variety in their gold coins, NFLD is the only Province to have them, and the mintage numbers are absurdly low.

So did your friend ever get that book for NFLD varieties published?

If he did what's it called? I'd love to get a copy.

I just picked up 6 20 cent silver coins and one 50 cent piece. I love the style of the engraving. I got the 50 cent piece at a coin shop, it is Victorian. The 20 cent coins are a mix 3 with Victoria and 3 with Edward, it was a cool deal, the guy wanted $125.00..... I offered him $60 expecting a counter offer, I got them
for $60.00... happy guy.

I'll try and get some pictures up soon.

I recently acquired this coin. It's an 1894 Newfoundland 20 cent. What I did discover is that in a few old books it's referred to as the "1A" variety. It seems that the coin community has forgotten all about it. It is very rare.

What makes it so interesting is the stream of dots coming out of the back of the Queens neck in front of her hair (just under the "Bun") due to the rusty die the mint decided to use.

jerry, thanks for bringing up this neglected variety. It is not very rare, in fact quite common.There are usually about a half dozen of these unattributed on eBay at any given time.Here's two for sale by a dealer who can't even bother to get the OBV1 part right.

Don't forget listing of varieties is driven by dealer sales,if there is no premium for a variety or "must have" factor involved, there is no demand, and listing of the variety all but disappears. Many,many varieties have suffered this fate.

"Dipping" is not considered cleaning...

I was recently at my LCS and noticed he had in several Newfoundland coins. As I was looking in the small cent bin, I noticed one coin that was different... it was s 1941 c? NFLD cent! When I asked how much it was he paused and said "You can have it." I've got my eye on a the other coins now... I also did not know Newfoundland only became part of Canada in 1949 I believe, and that they had their own currency! I've found a new avenue to my collection!
