I would sell as is if they are uncirculated rolls as for the Silver dollars I would go through them 1966 small bead is worth $2000.00+ if you have any.

Re: 2$ 1996 need opinion

It might be a good idea to let the police know about them being in your city now as mentioned in earlier post they are uncommon in the West. It would be a heads up for police and stores to keep a sharp eye open for them. The right foot on the bear is a dead give away for theses fakes

Re: Gold coloured 2000 Harmony quarter

If the weight is 5gr then I'm thinking it may have been gold coloured plated as this coin should weigh 4.4gr

Re: Gold coloured 2000 Harmony quarter

If you could supply pictures of the obverse and reverse it would help in maybe answering your question, it could be plated, cleaned, or maybe an error

Re: Low Circulation 1970 Canadian Nickel rolls - 20

I'd flip them out on e-bay as a single BU Bank roll, or in lots of 5-10 roll per lot plus shipping. I'm sure you will have several takers on them and have some fun as you liquidate your Aunties collection.
