I have always loved coin roll hunting through $100 boxes of nickels to look for 99.9% nickel Canadian nickels. These are the Canadian nickels minted before 1982. My brother and I first found out about these pure bullion nickels as a result of our love for copper pennies, and we instantly decided that we should take advantage of this great opportunity to expand from copper pennies into nickel nickels.
However, with the Harper government's decision to discontinue the Canadian penny, our recent focus has been to try to acquire and coin roll hunt through as many boxes of Canadian pennies as we could. During the summer, we made our way through 14 boxes of Canadian pennies. As I mentioned in the previous post on this blog, our attention has also been on trying to establish our silver goals and prepare for how we can be successful with these goals. These two circumstances have led to the unfortunate fact that we have not searched through a single box of nickels during the past eight months.
If you would like to see the results from our new boxes, or from any of our past boxes, visit our YouTube Channel. Also, let us know in the comment section below what you are coin roll hunting through these days. Best of luck in your searches this week!
