Today my son and I found a 1961 quarter in a roll we got from the bank. It was quite exciting to find this silver coin in circulation. It made me think of 2 questions:
1. What is the most interesting, rare or valuable coin you have ever found in your change?
2. Is there somewhere I can find a list of modern Canadian circulation coins that are valuable (errors, low mintage, etc.). I’d like to know what might be possible to find in circulation and what we should look out for. I know the chances are low but it’s the excitement of the hunt. I’ve struggled to find a list like this anywhere.
My son is a cashier at a grocery store; a couple of weeks ago he received a 1928 nickel from a customer! He swapped it for a more current nickel. It’s worn, and not a rare date, but it’s the oldest coin I’ve ever heard of being found in circulation.
