    This is my first official coin roll hunt. I looked through my mom's and sisters change and found 5 old coins and one clipped one... 5 were silver. That was quite awhile ago. Today I got ten rolls of dimes and five of the rolls were really old rolls. On my third roll, out popped this nice 1967 silver!!! Also kept the few American dimes I found... if I'm going to be doing this often it might make cents (pun intended) to keep them for the exchange.
    Always check rabbit holes when metal detecting... you never know, there might be karats down there.

    Such a nice surprise! I hope you get more pleasant surprises with the coin roll hunting.
    You've got my attention. I may have to try this soon.

    It never hurts to try! Hardly anyone coin roll hunts in canada compared to the u.s. so you might not find as many as I did.. but that is just my guess. Also our silver dimes and quarters go up to 1068 and u.s. only goes to 1964. (some 68's are and some are not) Hope you try it and have good luck!

    How many rolls do you do per month? What are your yearly silver finds on average?

    Why do you look for pennies? Do you just like the old coins or are you looking for valuable ones? You can melt copper it's against the law.

    I found this Canadian quarter about 10” deep behind a Victorian home in California with my Nox 800. It came out just like this picture. Very shinny and in pretty good condition. I was a thrilled.

    Nice! I have a 1919 dime but the date is barely visible... it is very very worn. Still a nice find though.

    Mainly do pennies because they fit in my budget :-p. I think pennies are more fun than dimes, much more difference and more to look for. Definitely like pulling older ones too, and that's easier with pennies it seems. And not hoarding, I don't care about the copper... Also, you may appreciate this one, got it in some change while I was working in Atlantic Canada, never realized it wasn't a dime until I started doing this:

    Dimes are a blast, I really miss hunting them! Congrats on the 1967 silver, itís either 50 or 80%.
    Living in Mich, I used to find thousands of Canadian dimes. So many, that Iíd just run a magnet thru Ďem and keep the ones that didnít stick. I found a couple hundred silver Canadian dimes between about 2010-2014, I sold all the 1967-68 silvers.

    How much did you get for selling them?

    This is the first year I have counted, and so far in 2019, I have searched $1,375 of dimes. I haven't tallied my yearly finds (2019 will be the first year I do), but I have searched for 20+ years, and over the course of time I have found a lot of silver. Between the cost of gas to drive to banks, time, etc., its not like I have actually made any money doing this - I just think it is neat that I can find silver and/or old pennies and nickels in circulation.

    The one benefit we have here in the US vs. Canada is half dollars. While they don't circulate widely, they are available at banks and we can order them in boxes of $500. Because they don't circulate much, and there was a high quantity of silver coins minted before 1970 (the half is the only US coin that retained silver after 1964), you can still find them.
