    Best denomination to search to find gold?

    I was curious as to what denomination would possibly have gold, my first thoughts were nickels, but then again some foreign gold could be dime size... any imput, and has anyone personally found gold in a roll?

    Aim high much?

    I guess if you want to find gold coins, look for quarter size and smaller. Your friend will be volume and probably customer rolls. If you really have ambition, find a bank that regularly has rolled Eisenhower dollars and hope and pray for a double eagle can you imagine

    Re: Best denomination to search to find gold?

    Finding gold coins always seemed like a stretch to me, and I have not found any yet...but, in the past 16 months I have found [2] gold rings in the reject bins of coin machines while dumping!!! One was 10kt with a current melt value of $125 and and the other was 14kt with a melt value of $230 - I have kept them both. I have also found a sterling silver ring in the reject bin as well in additional to dozens of silver coins, tokens and foreign keepers as well! Moral of the story: search as much as you can and always check the reject bin of your coin machines!!!

    Want to get Gold on a regular basis, and get it fast as possible?

    Then do CRH in volume, get the silver, and trade it for Gold.

    This is guaranteed to be your best shortcut to GOOOOOOLLLLLLDDDDD!

    Keep on Rollin' !

    Re: Best denomination to search to find gold?

    Well, it really depends on the gold coin, but British Sovereigns are closest to the nickel/penny in diameter (a nickel is 21.21 MM, full sovereign is 22.05 MM, a penny is 19.05 MM and a half sovereign is 19 MM). Quarter Eagles are quite close to the dime (18MM vs 17.91 MM for the dime).

    But, check the bags if you want gold the slight differences are likely to separate the coins out into a "junk" pile with the large industrial sorter, but an ordinary bank sorter will sort them into the bag

    The current $5 AGE is about the size of a dime so maybe you could search a bazillion dimes and get lucky. I believe someone on this board has found one. I don't remember who.

    Re: Best denomination to search to find gold?

    My daughter in law found 2 gold coins that were mixed in with dime rolls. I believe it was 2.50 gold coin. It had the native American with the big head dress. She worked at a bank and she gave one to the other teller. Find of a lifetime. She sold hers to help pay for collage.

    rolls of $2.50, $3, $5, $10 and $20 coins.

    Good luck finding a bank that can order them though...

    In all honesty, your best bet is to buy bags instead of rolls. As bags are only filtered by the one machine and there is frequently coins that are similar in size, but not exact mixed in (usually foreign).

    Any denomination could have one if you are lucky. The big problem is being at the right place at the right time as not many people with gold coins accidentally mix them in with their pocket change.

    Finding a gold coin in a roll is a lot harder (I would say at least 1000 times harder and I still feel I am guessing low) as it processed a second time and must pass both the original coin machine's size/weight filter as well as the rolling machine's size/weight filter.

    Neat stories and discussion. seems that dimes are the best to find gold. and this is more of a curiosity, not a goal :P
