As I mentioned last week, my brother and I have decided to get back into coin roll hunting Canadian nickels on a more consistent basis. Other than being a great hobby allowing for some excellent conversations and excitement, we do this because the melt value of pre-1982 Canadian nickels is significantly higher than their 5 cent face value since they are made from 99.9% nickel. From a value standpoint, these pre-1982 Canadian nickels standout from the modern day steel nickels. But to get back into nickel coin roll hunting consistently, we had to start with our first box in 9 months, and we were fortunate enough to do so this weekend.
However, our results left my brother and I extremely happy and confident to continue with our goal of jumping back into nickel coin roll hunting. Here are our results from this weekend:
$100 Canadian Nickel Box #31
- 178 99.9% nickels (8.9%)
- 16 pre-1963 12-sided Canadian nickels
- 1 1942 King George VI nickel
As you can see, we found an excellent percentage of 99.9% nickels, in addition to being very fortunate to find 17 pre-1963 Canadian nickels, including a 1942 King George VI nickel! I look forward to searching through our next box and, as always, sharing our results with you.
What are you guys searching through this week and how are your coin roll hunts going?
