1999 Polar Bear

I found this 1999 Polar Bear, coin roll hunting. This website indicates 117,318 coins minted so I assume they were never circulated?
It has been well circulated but I decided to put it in a flip and hang onto it anyway because of the lower mintage.

Re: 2012 $2 HMS Shannon with extra sail

In 2012 you could buy a 5-Pack from the mint for $10.00. I had a look through the one I bought and found one with an "extra sail". Interesting that only one coin had the "extra sail" in the package and the rest are normal.

1963 Double to Triple Hanging 3 Progression

I have been going through some 1963 1 cent uncirculated rolls I got at my local back. There seems to be a progression from a double hanging 3 (dies struck each other twice) to the coin after the dies struck each other for a third time forming the triple hanging 3 coin. Photo 1 Double hanging 3 coin ...

I'm a Zimbabwean Billionare!!

I'm a Zimbabwean billionare, 80 times over, haha!! A friend gave me these a few years back after a trip he took to Zimbabwe.
