    1880 Canadian 5-Cent

    I found this well-worn 1880 Canadian 5-cent piece under a bush in my mother's front yard. It was about 2-3 inches deep. It's my oldest find so far. Mom let me keep it!

    Does anyone know a good web site for Canadian coin values, number minted, metal content, etc? I haven't been able to find anything like the PCGS site for U.S. coins.

    Very Sweet. I just found an 1870 Canadian Quarter a couple weeks ago. I found a nice site that had the canadian coin types values. Didn't bookmark it....I'll see if I can find it later.

    Never mind - Admiral has it. I bookmarked it now.

    Nice find! My resource shows it less than $5.00, probably, but I'd be happy with a find like that.

    49er posted the site I had bookmarked here at home.
    Note what I just noticed--that the site was updated in 2005 and the prices were current 12/97 or something like that.

    In order to make this a value-added post, I'll look up your silver nickel in my Standard Catalog of World Coins. Okay, here you go:

    VG-8 - 6.00
    F-12 - 12.00
    VF-20 - 27.00
