Foreign coins in rolls to look for?
Noticed quite a few canadian pennies in my copper box today. Any other foreign coins to be on the look for and in what rolls typically?

There are too many to list that you could potentially find. Many are neat, but pretty much worthless. Although it is quite possible to find foreign silver. When unsure, I use this site to see what they're made of: Search for a coin - Numista

I save all foreigns I find unless they are beat up really bad. Save them all. You got them for a penny, or a nickel.

Start off by saving ALL Foreign coins.
After 1 year, if you are a normal hunter, you may have a coffee can fulll + -
Then, just ask Sag
BTW, theres a bank in Seattle that takees Canadian coin and bills at full face for Zero fee. I'm about to cash in 50 or so dollars!
