Our search for Canadian 99.9% nickel nickels continues this week with our 44th $100 box of nickels. Readers of this blog know that these coins offer us a number of beneficial qualities, chiefly being a cheap way to protect ourselves from inflation within the current inflationary monetary and fiscal policies that are ongoing. In addition to this potential protection, since their metal value is higher than their 5 cent face value, there is also the potential to receive a small gain down the road. Of course, the future is unknown and there is no telling what can happen years from now. But the one thing that is constant is that I love this hobby! While the above is all just theoretical and hypothetical, the enjoyment and fun that we get from coin roll hunting is what continues to push us forward to the next box.
This week saw us find a coin that we have not come across in a very long time; a 1967 centennial rabbit. This was a very nice find as we have had difficulty in coming cross the rabbits from quite a while now. We had a lower number of the 99.9% nickel nickels this week, but still a decent haul. Let's take a look at the results from our 44th box:
$100 Nickel Box #44
-101 99.9% nickel nickels (5.05%)
-8 pre-1963 Canadian nickels
-0 pre-1960 American nickels
We look forward to sharing our nickel finds with you next week. In the meantime, let us know what you are finding in your searches. All the best in the upcoming week!
