    Anyone CRH in Canada

    Hello all,
    Just wondering who here has tried their luck with Canadian rolls. I don't live far from Canada and was think of driving there and buying a couple of hundred dollars worth of Canadian change. Us dollar is worth more right now so I would be getting kinda a deal.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Jason

    You would be getting a deal assuming you don't get killed paying the fees to exchange your money.

    There were a few folks on here who lived in Canada, but they don't seem to post often.

    They can proly give you a better answer than I.

    I was going to do the same thing as well, the next time I was up in Niagara. I figured I'd try nickels to try to add to my Can. nickel set. Right now I'm saving all the can. coins I get in order to bring them all up there to Canada, trade them in at a bank, then take the Can. currency to another bank and buy rolls. I won't get hit with a fee that way.

    I assume they must.

    They have silver coins, in companies make folders to collect canadian coins. Plus, they were pulling the commemorative coin gag before we were! So they must like their coinage! =)

    I know they do things differently up there in America's hat (Canada) but they can't be THAT different... =)

    Yes the Canadians do CRH , I have a couple of friends that pick up rolls etc. These guys dont order boxes but they pick coins for a hobby . One of them I have know for years and we were talking awhile ago and he said that he has approx 8k worth at face value of various coins that he has collected through the years .. best of luck Jason , Ed

    i used to pay for some pretty decent canadian summer vaca time.by crh there. not silver but the spread.at that time the canada dollar was only worth about 72 cents usa. getting rolls of quarters and dimes yielded many usa coins.which i brought back and spent here.im not sure if this would be good anymore as i think both the usa and can dollar are pretty close in valu right now. would love to metal detect there. them 1 and 2 dollar coins add up.
    SPINNER VALUE KEY: RED is METAL DETECT.LT  BLUE is AUCTION. DARK BLUE is GOLD MINING.GREEN is THRIFT STORE.YELLOW is GEM GRUBBIN.PINK is COIN ROLL HUNT.BROWN is BEACH AND SHALLOW WATER HUNT.ORANGE JUNK PICK AND OR METAL SCRAPPING
