Readers who are currently keeping up with this blog will now that we love coin roll hunting and finding coins that have a greater metal value than their face value. We keep these coins as a way to protect our wealth in the current inflationary monetary and fiscal environment and because there may be an opportunity for their value to go even higher in the future. However, all this aside, it is just a great hobby that we both enjoy immensely.
As we have mentioned, we have set a lofty goal for ourselves in terms of nickel coin roll hunting by trying to accumulate 100 pounds of 99.9% nickel nickels in 2014. This will require hard work and persistence on our parts, but we are very excited as each box gets us closer to our goal. Let's take a look at the results from of our 41st nickel box:
$100 Nickel Box #41
-124 99.9% nickel nickels (6.2%)
-12 pre-1963 Canadian nickels
-1 pre-1960 American nickels
This was a great box of nickels for us, as we were able to bump up the percentage of pure nickel bullion coins quite substantially from our previous box. If we could continue to hit the 6-8% mark on each box, that would assist us with our goal going forward. It was also nice to find so many older nickels. We have been very lucky recently to find so many pre-1963 Canadian and American nickels. Looking for these older coins makes coin roll hunting even more exciting and it is nice to be rewarded with boxes like this.
Those are our finds for this box, I hope that all of your searches are going great. As always, we would love to hear about your finds recently in the comments below. Thank very much for your ongoing interest and support.
