Jade: I never thanked you for the info on 2000-2006 CuNi's

I came across a chart on here a while back, showing someone did metal analysis on canadian nickels from that date range, and the %'s of steel vs CuNi's. I bet they could have saved a lot of effort if they knew what you had shared.

My question: I'm keeping those 2000-2006 CuNi nickels seperate from the 82-99, because I feel that in the (distant) future they will command a premium due to low mintages and the dreaded ARP. what are your thoughts?

metal is a claim on future human labour. let's all go get some while the getting is good, eh?

Hi guys! It's been a while. Hope you've all been well.

1 box yielded:

179 Ni (8.95%)

And:
34 U.S., 1x37 dot, 1x39, 1x49, 1x58, No foreign

The 49 is very special. It has a very nice toning on both sides, a dark brassy color with a blue-green inside and around the lettering and numbering. I've never found a Canadian nickel with this kind of toning.

1 box yielded:

520 Ni (26%)

And:
1 Australian 5 cent

A very nice high-percentage box. Most of the Ni are fairly clean coins from the 70's. I got this from a woman at the bank I've never seen before. She must be new. She asked me the usual inquisitive questions "What do you need them for?" then she asked me something very interesting. "Are you searching for silver?" I thought this was interesting because most young tellers don't have a clue about coinage. Even though I was searching for Ni in a 5 cent box at least she knows there is silver out there. I explained that to her and she just brushed it off, saying by the end of the day she is so tired of looking at coinage and bills that she doesn't want to deal with it.

It's amazing how much help you can get from tellers. If you find one like her, very friendly and willing to help, just politely ask them to set aside any "old" or interesting coins that they find, and in many cases they will. You can even ask them to keep their eyes open for silver coins. Just specify the years. Some of them will help you out.

And:
