How About Some Canadian and Provincial Coinage, Medals & Tokens?

TomBTomB Posts: 16,591 ✭✭✭✭✭

I adore many of the medallic, coinage and token issues of Canada, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Prince Edward Island. However, I don't own many pieces. We must have some cool things from members of this board. It might be nice to share images with one another.

To start, here is some circulated coinage I picked up at bullion a few years ago...

    I used to own a complete set of PEI coin. I also like NFLD 50c pieces.

    I have posted the PCGS images of most of the ones I have had graded.

    What a beautiful run of Canadian Dollars. While the first four can be found in an attractive state, I think most here would be surprised as to the difficulty in finding the next four that look like this. Well done-

    Wow! This is great. Thank you very much to all who have added images and information thus far.

    The number of wonderful dollar coins is far more than I had anticipated at this point. The Parliament dollar is always one that I liked very much and I sold a really nice example of this issue last year, which leaves me with none at the moment.

    I feel compelled to put a couple comments down about two coins. The first is toward Clio's twenty-cent piece and I think it is a beautiful, original example of the issue. Over the years I have tossed about putting together a set of these and someday I may cross the bridge. Also, coinkat's Edward VII quarter is really attractive and not messed with. It is my opinion that the central obverse of this issue has a rather high relief profile when compared with the detail elements within the central profile such that there really isn't much there to look at and, as a consequence, these can be devilishly difficult to grade in the AU-MS range.

    Here is a Newfoundland Edward VII half in MS that really shows how little detail is in the central obverse region-

    Stunning example. I have been on the lookout for a 1917 25 Cent. Seems I will have to see about assembling a type set of sorts of the quaters/20c. Great series.

    Love the 1904 NF 50Cents...easily very close to if not GEM. Now... imagine if it were a Canadian 1904 that looked like that. All one can see is $$$$

    As always, Rob ... your examples are things to adore and dream about. Even I, who doesn't do "bright and shiny", have to let out a little gasp when I see them.

    Here is another Newfoundland fifty-cents. I just love these things, but I don't find that there are many others who share my passion for them-

    Surely anyone with a passion for nice coins would appreciate. Very impressive examples. I was actually reviewing your site and saw your 1874-H Victoria Quarter! Very nice example. You have dabbled in some nice Canadian & Provincial coinage.

    This one has been posted here before. Ex. Landon. ICCS MS-67 Red, PCGS MS-66+ Red. Perhaps the finest Victorian cent still in existence. The nicest of the Landon cents, of which a great many were very nice.

    Agreed!!
    I’ve got to start hunting for Victorian cents.

    Not a coin, but simply a really cool medal I found out in the wild-
