CRH Gold?! Post your best find / strategy.
Has anyone found GOLD CRH? I see in coolcash2004's BEGINNERS GUIDE TO COIN ROLL HUNTING!!! + TERMS that he found some GOLD in a box of quarters. I am enticed by the possibility. I have found all sorts of cool silver, no GOLD coins yet.
Are there some denominations of coins that might have GOLD? (based on the size of the gold coins vs clad) How about teller trays? I bought a bunch of golden SAC dollars today hoping a GOLD eagle might show up. I think I have a new niche to find CRH. - JJ

I have found plenty of gold CRHing. Its all a few microns thick though, on the outside of some clad halves. The quarter eagle is close to the size of a dime, the half eagle is a few mm smaller than a quarter, the gold eagle is much bigger then a half. That said, I have found quarters, SBAs, and modern gold dollar coins in half rolls. Anything is possible, but I bet the biggest chance you have of finding gold is in a coin machine reject tray or a teller tray.

I think the reject tray/trash bin is the best place to look, too. I have a few banks I may have enough favor at to not only fill the bag, but then be put up with enough to ask for permission to rummage the trash tray inside.

Anyone else find any gold coins or thoughts? Thanks, Jonathan

I think a couple people have claimed to have found gold CRHing, and even gold rings in the reject trays of machines....not sure I ever saw pics of the claimed coins
I do recall someone finding a gold class ring and being able to return it to its rightful owner, that was pretty epic IMHO!

I found a sterling tiffany ring in the trash container inside a machine a while back. Teller thought it couldnt be real. It was. Maybe the same would go for gold coins? Maybe purchases from tellers might include a gold? The possibility is so tempting.

I've heard of a $10 coin (pre-33), a $5, (pre-33) an austrian ducat in a roll of pennies. a gold amero coin, $20 eagle, CC's coin and a grant memorial coin (Pictures by what could have been a really cool member if he stuck around)

Gold, Baby! (no joke)
The Austrian dukat is cool, I got one yesterday from my family. I think any denomination could contain gold, and no denomination is better than another (gold coins come in all sizes).
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.
