2010 is Real Close

Do you have Canadian coins and want to know its value? Leave a comment

So I asked myself HDTV or higher end camera.

Well seeing how I'm posting these new pictures from a Canon G11 I think you can figure out what way I went. These are brand new test photos I hope to get better at capturing coin and currency images. These were taken from one light source and without a tripod but still not bad the details are amazing.

Canon PowerShot G11 10MP Digital Camera with 5x Wide Angle Optical Stabilized Zoom and 2.8-inch articulating LCD

How appropriate a new camera for a new coin.

The 2009 Canadian Speed Skating 2010 Vancouver Olympic coin. Officially released on March 12, 2009 it is one of many in their Olympic series. Allegedly some were colorized but I've yet to see any.


The front has the Queen and the 2010 Winter Olympic logo Ilanaaq the Inunnguaq (that means friend). The back has a speed skater not sponsored by The Colbert Nation.

It's a nice variety which is why it is nearly impossible to collect one of every Canadian coin out of pocket...in another country.


Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 25 Cents / Canada
Year: 2009
Mintage: 22,040,000 (estimated)
Metal: 94% Steel, 3.8% Copper, 2.2% Nickel
Value: $0.25

Do you have a coin from Canada 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.

38 dollars worth, for Comments/Questions click here.:

It looks like you have a nice camera on your hands! Congrats. I am still hoping to get a 'real' camera. One day, in the future, perhaps.

The detail is amazing, though (just realized you said the exact same thing).

It cost a bit but I get a paycheck at the end of the month so why not splurge.

Only Men's and Women's Hockey coins have a colorized version of them in circulation.

Nice to know but others have been colorized and not been put in circulation. Still they may end up in circulation by accident.

Its a special type that has been colourized. The mint released three 'greatest canadian olympic moments' quarters. There are 22, 000, 000 of each, and only 3, 000, 000 have been colourized.

This is the regular speed skating coin - part of the sports series. The new Cindy Klassen coins are sometimes colored - she is a speed skater too.

Man said...

Hmmm.

I assuming you are this is a High Relief variety.
One way to make sure is if the "A" in GRATIA points at a denticle (tooth at rim), if it does this is a high relief worth about $100.00.

If the "A" in GRATIA points between the denticle (tooth at rim), then it is low relief worth $2.60.

What is the prospects of the colored Cindy klassen quarter increasing in value say in 20 years?

It turns out that the colored parts tends to break off after a few years so...
Mint State or higher will probably go to $25 and higher.

Circulated as long as it has the colored part in full it will extra value.

thx

Man said...

From the Special Edition set yes.

MS-64 which is average grade for these sets is about $15.00.

But once cut out they may lose grade. That said some are near perfect and therefore worth more.
