Awesome Coin Roll Hunting Results!

This was box a great box, with 15 King George VI pennies!
In our most recent box of Canadian penny box, we were extremely lucky to get quite a lot of King George VI pennies, from 1940 to 1952. We were also fortunate to find a 1933 King George V penny, which is an excellent numismatic coin! We have only found six King George V pennies in almost three years of coin roll hunting, so it is always exciting to pick one of these up.

It is also nice to get these older King George pennies because the pennies have been discontinued here in Canada, which should make their value increase in the future as their numbers thin due to many of them being destroyed (i.e. melted down) during the government's transition. Here are the result for this box:

$25 Penny Box
-860 copper pennies (35.20%)

Total King George VI pennies (15): 1940x2, 41, 43, 45, 46x2, 47x2, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52
Total American Wheat cents (1): 1941

With these results, we have completely caught up on the boxes we hoarded before the Canadian penny was discontinued in February. Therefore, all of the penny results in the future will be from our last 14 boxes. Hopefully, they will be as fruitful as this box was.
