1994 Canada 5 Cents

Have Canadian nickel and want to know its value? Leave a comment

Got this Canadian nickel a day after the Fourth of July so let me imagine the story.

Some Canadian was out celebrating Canada Day and said, "Where's the fireworks, eh?" then an idea came to mind. Driving three days to New York City the Canadian parked in New Jersey then took a bus to the West Side highway. After watching the fireworks said "I need some gum." Having the thirty U.S cents and needing just a nickel secretly the Canadian sneaked in this coin and then drove home satisfied.


I am guessing the only implausible part is the price of gum. I do not buy the stuff so I was just guessing.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 5 Cents / Canada
Year: 1994
Mintage: 99,352,000
Metal: 75% Copper, 25% Nickel
Value: $0.05 in Fine

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.

A friend of mine showed me his find - a 1901 penny. Beautiful looking, no scratches, but a bit of the hair and face detail has worn off. I don't remember a mint mark.

Sounds very-fine about $6.00, there were no mint marks for this year.

Hi, I have a 1984 Jefferson nickel with an unusually high rim. It is also thinner than usual. It this rare in nickels?

1984 Jefferson nickel with an unusually high rim. It is also thinner than usual.

This is either a finned rim or die adjustment strike.

Generally in circulated grade and not extreme like 3 times taller than normal, it has little to no extra value.
