The 69th edition Canadian Coins, Volume One, includes all coins which have been used as circulating legal tender in Canada since 1858. Over one hundred and fifty years of Canadian coins are listed, illustrated and priced. More than one hundred different varieties, throughout the seven denominations, are illustrated with macro images for ease of identification. The Silver Dollar Variety Section includes with a new section on the Nickel Dollar Varieties of 1968-1987. Over a span of 20 years this series produced over twenty double die varieties, the greatest number currently recorded for any series. A total of 83 varieties are illustrated, plus many more when you include the different finishes. This is the first time the four finishes (circulation, brilliant uncirculated [PL], specimen, and proof) have been specifically listed as part of the variety designation.
As in past editions some of the more interesting varieties of the previously featured denomination (silver dollars) have been moved forward to the main section of the book.
The Test Token section is one of the more difficult categories in which to gather information. Included in the Test Token Section are Concept Test Tokens, now expanded to 17 different varieties.
Naturally, all prices in the 69th edition have been revised and all listings expanded to accommodate the new issues. Prices across the board for all lower grade silver and gold coins are now supported by the rising tide of the precious metals market.
