Re: Non-magnetic nickel in 2012 proof quarters?

I asked what it is worth-- Hi Joe I would estimate that the coin is worth a $100 or more as it is a coin made on a foreign planchet. If a lot of them turn up, it will be worth less than that. If it's the only one, it will be worth more. But it will take many years to find out how plentiful or rare t...

Re: Non-magnetic nickel in 2012 proof quarters?

Thanks, Joe. I'm pretty sure that I have seen George's name before. Even if it is a non-nickel planchet, it's virtually impossible to know the composition of the planchet that was used without removing the coin from the case. I'm probably at the end of the information road for this coin. I'll just ...

Re: Non-magnetic nickel in 2012 proof quarters?

The compositions that you referred to are the circulation issues. The proof issues often have different compositions. The RCM specifications on the CoA indicate that it is Nickel. Your second idea might be on the right track, though. I am not going to remove a proof coin from the plastic case, thou...

Re: Non-magnetic nickel in 2012 proof quarters?

It could be a wrong planchet as that your mint makes coins for countries other than Canada. See http://www.georgemanzcoins.com/errors/canadian.html And http://www.coinscan.com/for/foreign.html You might weigh it. Look at this coin made at your mint the same year. Same size Non-magnetic . http://www....

Re: Non-magnetic nickel in 2012 proof quarters?

Hey Canadian coin people, I was just looking at my 2012 base metal 2012 Canada proof set. As you may know, the quarter in this set is supposed to be composed of nickel (as are the 5, 10, and 50 cent coins). They are all appropriately magnetic except for the 25 cent piece. Does anybody know why this...

I Emailed Mike Diamond past president of CONECA and got this back.



It certainly didn't leave the mint looking that way.
