2000 Pride Canadian Quarter

Have a Canada quarter and want to know its value? Leave a comment

This was the premiere millennial quarter for Canada in 2000. It is also the most common. This January 2000 quarter looks like a party as it was meant to look like a New Year's celebration. Some were colorized with a red ribbon and the three smaller maple leafs also in red. Of course I have only found the more common uncolored version.

 

Pride or Fierte (in French) is how the Canadians wanted to recognize the new millennium, although the true millennium was 2001. It is a beautiful coin and the only one I can recall that has confetti.

Some sharp eyed visitors may notice the front of the coin has what seems to be trails and extra metal on the design. There is no good explanation for these trails but die deterioration or some kind of die variety is likely. This error does not really add value although a large community is starting to develop to study and trade trail dies and other "extra metal" varieties. Extra is in quotes as it is not actually extra metal but holes and scrapes on the die.. 

Here are the stats...
Type/Country: 25 Cents-January Pride / Canada
Year: 2000
Mintage: 50,749,102
Metal: 100% Nickel
Value: $0.25 in EF-40

This post is so old, but I thought I'd try anyway.
I got this interesting quarter the other day,
instead of the little red streaks in the ribbons, the
whole quarter has been printed red! So, I was wondering
if it's value would be different considering it's rare.

Damage it was painted red outside the mint.
No extra value.
