Back in April I got a new ten dollar bill in my change on the same day I got a 1987 Canadian dollar coin. Since then I've got lots of questions on a possible error on the ten dollar bill.
Look at the note carefully this is what a new crisp ten dollar bill looks like.
Now the question of error on the new ten dollar bill.
It is a myth people asked why does the 2006 note have a 2004 date, is that an error?
When a new bill has a design change they change the date to what ever year the change was made. If the design change is minor like a signature or adding color then a letter is added to the date, so 2004 turns to 2004A.
No ten dollar bill errors have been verified.
As for the Loonie coin it was the first Loonie coin in Canada's dollar coin series. There is another common 1987 Canadian dollar but it is 10x rarer. It is also an 11 sided coin, I think the cashier who gave it to me confused it with a U.S. golden dollar.
Here are the values of those pictured above...
Type / Country: 10 dollar bill / United States
Value: $10.00 in all grades unless it has been professional certified.
Type / Country: 1 dollar-Loon / Canada
Metal: Aureate-Bronze Plated Nickel
Value: $2.25 in MS-63(this one is about $1.25 because it is worn)
