Oh, Canada

Do you have a Canadian coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.

I have been slow to get new coins mainly because I have to save money for college stuff. Apparently college gets more expensive the closer you are to graduating. Back to my coin shortage.

There are 3 main ways to get coins .
  1. Buy them but that cost time and money.
  2. Get them from family or friends but that gets annoying and is not worth it.
  3. Find them in your change which is what I mainly do.
As I use more credit cards and less actual cash I get less change. Add that to to the fact that lots of people are collecting or not using change this leaves few coins to find. When the second year of statehood quarters came out I was averaging about 2 new coins from change every 3 days. Now I am averaging 2 new coins from my change a month.

That all being said I still got these 3 coins from Canada in my American change.
2 silver dimes and one plated quarter.

Here are the stats...
Type/Country: 10 Cents/Canada
Year: 1958
Mintage: 10,621,236
Metal: 80% Silver, 20% Copper
Value: $0.79 in AG-3 (because this coin is very corroded so the value is just for the silver content)

Type/Country: 10 Cents/Canada
Year: 1967
Mintages: 32,309,135 for 80% or 30,689,080 for 50%
Metal: 80% Silver, 20% Copper or 50% Silver, 50% Copper
Value: $0.79 in F-12 for 80% or $0.49 in F-12 for 50%
(As far as I can tell there is no way to tell the 80% from the 50%, mine weighs 2.37 grams which is higher than the 2.33 grams it should weigh.)

Type/Country: 25 Cents/Canada
Year: 2004P
Mintage: 177,466,000
Metal: 94% Steel, 3.8% Copper, 2.2% Nickel
Value: $1.00 in MS-60

I just threw in the ruler for scale, I'm just testing it out.

Do you have a Canadian coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.

how much is a 1902 liberty Head penny worth. I have scan of it here http://img58.imageshack.us/my.php?image=awesomefindwidescrngq3.jpg.
It's in bad shape but i received it as change so can't complain to loudly.

Man said...

1902 Indian Head cent

Your looks like a very good but that green stuff is PVC damage.

This occurs when it has put in a PVC holder and the green stuff is mainly permanent and damaging.

You can try to use real acetone, not nail polish remover to stop further greening. Just soak it for some time and tap dry with a cloth.

The value is $1.00 or less mainly because the damage, if you place it with other coins the green stuff will spread. This is why you found it in change, some collector put it in circulation to save his other coins.

Still a great find.

PS without the green it would be worth $3.00.

So what are good holders for coins. I had some mini ziploc type bags I've been storing the newer ones in. The older one i keep in cardboard coin storage cases I bought at hobby lobby.

Man said...

Most coin holders today are PVC-free only the older holders damages coins.

Cardboard 2x2 holders are generally fine.

Some put them in ziplock bags or food safe containers to keep moisture away.

Coin albums,not folders, with sleeves are also fine for circulated coins.

For uncirculated or higher value coins...
Airtite brand holders
Intercept Shield brand holders

Google search will turn up lots of sellers for each kind of holder or you can try a local hobby shop.

Some people place silica gel packs near the coins in holders to absorb moisture.

Totally random coin but how much do you think it's worth?

Man said...

First, nice picture.

For those who don't know, the coin is...
3 Kopeks / Russia
Copper
1904 С.П.Б. (St. Petersberg mintmark)
6,934,000 minted

It looks in at least fine condition, I see know feather or wreath details. It may have some PVC damage I can't really tell.

Value is about $1.00.

i have 1937 US panny how much is it worth

Man said...

I'll give values in extra-fine.

Canadian pennies
1964 about $0.05
1963 about $0.05
1949 about $0.25
1943 about $0.45

US penny
1937 about $1.00

Great Britain 1979 New Penny
About $0.15


53, 63, 64 5 cent coins?????
At least give a country or more details.

2005 with a pig??
Sounds like Bermuda one cent about $0.25

1967 with a rabbit??
Sounds like Ireland 3 Pence about $0.25

Of course these values are in extra-fine meaning sharp details all over. If not then value drops rapidly.

all of the coins are canadian and the pig2005 is canadian and the rabbit too

Man said...

Canadian in extra-fine.

5 cent coins

Canada 2005 with a pig??
I don't know of such a coin does it have any writing, any denomination, metal color.
Unless you mean a beaver, it is a 5 Cents two leaves, a beaver on a log then CANADA 2005. On the front it should have mintmark P.
About $0.10.

Canada 1967 with a rabbit
Should say 1867-1967
About $0.10.

how much can i sell one cent1958 canada

Man said...

1 Cent 1958 Canada

Average buyers price is $0.03.
Mostly for the copper content.

Unless the coin is perfect, shiny, and red then maybe $0.15.

I like the way you phrased the question because it may be valued at a higher price but few dealers would buy it for more then face value. It is one of the risk when collecting coins for profit.

This is the centennial design with a mackeral on the back.
There are two varieties:
80% silver, 20% copper worth about $1.00 in uncirculated.
50% silver, 50% copper worth about $0.60 in uncirculated.

There is no way to tell them apart as far as I know.

Hi thanks for responding to me
I did in fact take your advice and found out more about the coin in question. The result is that it is not made from copper like all the other Canadian 1 cents. And I also did notice that there is something missing from this coin that is on other Canadian coins which is under the head of DG Regina Elizabeth there is not the little circle with what I think is a castle. At least that is what it looks like to me under a magnifier.
My question to you Man is if by any chance are you familiar with such a coin and what is the value of it.
I truly would appreciate your help.
Thank you for your time

Man said...

-This is normal for older coin the mintmark was not on 1977 coins it is only on new coins.


My question to you Man is if by any chance are you familiar with such a coin and what is the value of it.

Hi, I was just going through my change, looking for the oldest coin I owned (just for the fun of it) and found a 1958 penny, and I was wondering how much it was worth. I searched the net for information, and it told me that my penny was worth from 70$-300$, that seamed a little off to me, quite frankly it like SPAM, then I searched eBay, and it said that my penny was worth barely a dollar. After that I found this site, and it seamed to have the most creditability, so here I am.

Please tell me how much it's worth! Am I sitting on a pot of gold, or is it just junk?
