2000 Canadian Achievement Quarter

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

ACHIEVEMENT or REALISATION
Success in an accomplish although does not the French translate to mean "realization" which is the act of make something real. Slight difference but that does not take away from the great quarter design.It has a simple rocket with a trail of smoke blending into ocean swirls. There is a maple leaf mountain and a background of stars.


My favorite part of this coin is the rocket. It is designed simply but cut deeply. The pyramid shape gives it a feel like it is flying off the coin the rest of design is relatively flat. The only other high point is the large star that seems to guide the rocket. Daryl (Ann) Dorosz was the designer for this March 2000 quarter.

Here are the stats...
Type/Country: 25 Cents-March, Achievement / Canada
Year: 2000
Mintage: 35,135,154
Metal: 100% Nickel
Value: $0.25 in G-4

Hello,

I found your site while conducting an online search for “coin collecting” and think that it’s fantastic! I also have a blog (http://atlantagoldandcoin.com/blog/) that I maintain where I address various topics dealing with buying and selling coins. While I’m a coin dealer, I’m first and foremost an avid coin collector and believe that I can offer some insight that would be valuable to your readers. Case in point is our revised and updated coin & bullion buying and selling guide:

Please let me know if you would be receptive to allowing me to post guest blogs or articles on your website in exchange for a link. I’d also be willing to offer a mutual exchange of links or articles between our websites that would be mutually beneficial to our readers.

Let me know what you think and if you’d like to discuss further. I can be reached at sales@atlantagoldandcoin.com.

We have a 2000 Canadian quarter that says Achievement Realization on one side and the other side is flat and smooth. It obviously missed being stamped on the other side. What does this do to the value of the coin?

Damaged, it is not possible to stamp a coin on one side while the other side is smooth.

The other side would be warped if it was a real error.

Someone removed the back to make jewelry it is a common practice.
