Re: Silver Prices

troubadour please let me know where you will get melt value or $15 from a dealer. If that's the case I will rush there right now and cash in all my 1967 silver dollars. At this very moment (13:18 Friday Nov 15/19), if you were to go to J&M Coins in Vancouver you would get $9.75 for a 1967 Silver $1....

Re: Availability of 50 Cent and Nickel Dollars at Banks in Canada

I do also have some original mint rolls I would be willing to sell. To bad you didn't post your inquiry last year. I had between 200 - 250 roll that I sold off.

Re: Availability of 50 Cent and Nickel Dollars at Banks in Canada

Are you just interested in mint rolled Nickel dollars and 50 cent coins?

Would you possibly be interested in loose or self rolled coins?

PM me with your email so we can connect as I may be able to help you.

When exactly and where in Canada will you travel? I am in Alberta?

Happy travelling.
