Copper Penny Hoarding - Coin Roll Hunting Results #1

In a previous post, I mentioned that my brother and I were going to look back through our copper penny and 99.9% nickel coin roll hunting results and share them with you here on our blog. Not only did we think that it would be beneficial since it is always fun to see what people get from coin roll hunting through boxes of coins, but also from the standpoint of seeing how our results change over time. From a personal standpoint, I also like to see how our earlier videos turned out as it is the first time that I am seeing them in months.

The video above, you can see the results from two $25 penny boxes. If you are not familiar with coin roll hunting, it might be surprising to know that my brother and I went through 5,000 pennies trying to pick out specific coins. However, since the pre-1997 Canadian pennies have a metal value much higher than their 1 cent face value, we feel that this has the potential to make economic sense. A part from that, it is also a wonderful hobby that is exciting and allows for some excellent conversations to take place. Here are the results from these boxes:

$25 Penny Boxes #1 and #2:
- 2,148 copper pennies (42.96%)
- 14 American Wheat cents
- 8 Canadian King George VI pennies

These were the first results that we put on video and they, along with the amazing feedback that we received, really helped to motivate us to continue making videos for our YouTube channel. The coin roll hunting community is made up of great individuals who are passionate about the hobby.
