Have Canadian quarter and want to know its value? Leave a comment
Sure the Canadian cent will soon be mostly gone from everyone's change but there still are other Canadian coins to enjoy. Got this shiny but linty coin yesterday it features a cross country skier. This was one of many Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic commemorative coins that were made so none are truly special.
This is one of the rare examples of a dual dated coin where the early date is the true date. Since 2007 they made Olympic coins that had the "vancouver 2010" and it confused some non-collectors. Future dating a coin is not something countries do often. Sure some coins are made before the date on them but they are generally not released until after that specific date.
I guess the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) are such experts in collectible coins that selling them three years before the event was a good idea. There are colored version of each of these but I never got any. As for now the RCM is making glow in the dark colored coins so imagine what the future holds.
Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 25 Cents / Canada
Year: 2009 Olympic Logo
Mintage: Not yet known
Metal: 94% Steel, 3.8% Copper, 2.2% Nickel
Please excuse the RCMs use of coloured instead of colored they will one day lose the extra u to save money.
