I still have a small collection of US coins. I sold most of my coins years ago, but I still buy an old US coin from time to time.

Post a pic of your favorite gamehhh69, I'll try to dig out a favorite of mine and post a pic of it.

i've got 18 rolls of the state quarters. really don't want them. all mint in bank wrapped rolls. $10.00 rolls.

also, some silver certificates, silver dollars or 2. some old pennies. a couple old 2 dollar bills.

i think the quarters are going back to the bank. don't see much future in those.

I've been collecting coins for many years. Maybe time to sell- proof and uncirculated sets from the mint since the 80's.Interested?

i am looking to old silver dollars for my parents. my mom didnt know they were worth anything so i took them and have been researching. i think they are worth anywhere from 3$~100 depending on quality. anyone got any good sites for silver dollars? =)

i think they ranged from 1935~1980

I'm currently collecting the state quarters. Have all 41 out so far, and keep a roll of each. my safe is getting full.
my one coin I collect that is my 'specialty' I guess is half dollars.
have quite a few of them, dating back to the early 19th century.
also have some pretty cool one cent stuff, including some 1819-1820 large cent pieces.
my grandpa got me started along time ago, and I guess old habits are hard to break.

i found some of these walking liberty's ben franks and kennedys to be worth quite a pretty penny...

anyone know if i go to a reputable coin dealer, if they can "price" them out for me? im not looking to sell them, but get a better value of them...

I collect Canadian coins as my main focus, but also collect American, British, and Commonwealth. I also enjoy collecting tokens such as those used for buses and subways, bridges, amusement parks, etc.

American silver dollars have been around since the 1800's. The first Canadian silver dollar was introduced in 1935 to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the reign of King George V. Canada's last circulating (silver) silver dollar was in 1967.

I have a decent size collection of coins and currency. Most of it is pre-WWII US stuff, wheat pennies, buffalo nickels, silver certicifates, mercury dimes, that kind of stuff. I have a collection weird foriegn coins, and lots of european bills from WWII.

My favorite pieces have to be my CSA (confederate states of america) bills, and the error coins.

Just had some misc. coins laying around the desk so I thought I would post some photos.

This is Canada's fist silver dollar which commemorates King George V 25th anniv. as King





The 1937 25 cents was the fist year of the use of the caribou on the reverse and the fist year of King George VI on the obverse

Pre Cofederation 1 cent





War time nickel made from chromium plated steel. Instead of beads or denticles around the rim they used a Morris Code message that reads " We win when we work willingly "

Commemorative Silver Dollars

1939 commemorating the Royal Visit to Canada





1949 Commemorating Newfoundland becoming a Canadian Province. Before 1949 Newfoundland was a British Territory. Also the Obverse changed. "ET IND IMP" was removed because India had become independent from Britain and the Latin reference to the King also being the emperor of India was removed from coinage.
