Yes I've been busy and have not been able to post regularly on my new finds. I will say it's not much of an issue since most of my finds are common despite the fact I tried to make change as much as possible.
The U.S. nickel and dollar were from a MetroCard vending machine while the Canadian nickel is from change at a store. Just to get dollar coins I use the MetroCard machines and while most of dollars are from 2000 and crusty brown they do have a quick turnaround. A recent subway trip got me a 2009-P 11th President dollar coin which is good since it came out on August 20, 2009 and it was in my hand by October 18, 2009.
Again nothing too special about each coin:
- The 2006 Canada 5 cents is the first one for me.
- The 1957-D U.S. nickel is the 4th for me but it is half a century old so why not.
- The U.S. dollar is just 1 month old and that is early for a change find.
