    Coin Roll Hunting


    I'm going to leave to Canada in an hour and I'll be there 10 hours later... If I get a box of pennies in Canada, do I use American money, what bank to I go to, and what do I search for?

    use canadian money, and go to any bank - might have to try a few - or simply buy smaller amounts than a box from multiple banks.

    What a silly question!

    albert - why do you want canadian pennies? people like all differnt kinds. The rare ones are 1 in a million. you need to read about canadian pennies. Just buy a bunch, and then sort them later.

    1922 - 1,243,635 minted
    1923 - 1,019,002
    1924 - 1,593,195
    1925 - 1,000,622
    1955 w/o strap

    Above are the key dates - worth 20 bucks or more each. I would personally save any canadian coin that is copper ( GOOGLE IT). Another fun thing to look for are the different portraits on the Canadian penny. Young queen Elizabeth - old queen Elizabeth - king George the V, and king George the VI.

    Personally I would of wished I knew Canada was ridding the penny when I was in Niagra Falls. I would of crossed and bought a few boxes for my collection. I save all candian coinage. Especially cents

    Make sure to dump those Canadian pennies back here in the US of A.
    I'm pretty sure you can just swap them out for a box of US pennies at any major bank.
    Remember, don't take NO for an answer.

    Save the key dates (google them) and the 2012 cents (limited production).
    1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.

    i use pesos when i go to the bank, 25 pesos for a box of pennies, 100 pesos for a box of nickels, etc.

    just messing with ya, use canadian money in canada... I am sure if you went to any bank here in america and had a canadian $20 bill, the bank wouldn't accept it too easily.(of course some banks have currency exchange)
