1973 Canadian Nickel

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

First Canadian find of 2012. Found in change after buying coffee at the cafeteria, although workplace coffee should be free in my humble opinion. Again not at all shocked that my first non-U.S. find is from Canada. Also kind of sad because my friends drove up to Montreal for Mardi Gras and I could not go.

 

There is currently about nine cents worth of nickel in this coin. So despite the grade it is hovering at the ten cents mark and I see no sign it will go down. This is apparently true all over the coin world with metal prices outpacing normal value even outpacing rare coins.

Spring seems to be arriving early this year and with that I hope to see an upswing in travel and more diverse change finds.

Here's the stats for the coin pictured...
Type/Country: 5 Cents / Canada
Year: 1973
Mintage: 53,507,435
Metal: 100% Nickel
Value: $0.10 in Extra-Fine

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

I have a 1922 Canadian five cents that appears to be Near Rim from what I can guess. It appears to be VG from pictures of similar nickels except for two 2mm scratches near old George's face. Worth anything?
