How common are toned coins

I've been looking pretty hard as well for toned Canadian coins. There are a few out there, but they generally don't bring very large premiums unless they are both "monster" toned and slabbed.

 

Those 1970's specimen dollars (especially the 1973 RCMP commemorative) do often have quite nice toning. I don't have a voyageur one myself, but I have a few of the 1973's.

There are certainly some out there, but really nice naturally toned coins seem tough to come by.

I think I remember hearing somewhere that some mint sets contained some sort of chemical

that would naturally tone the coins over time.

 

This is one I plucked out of a specimen set.

This one I found on ebay a few days ago...not worth much, but I thought it was nice looking.
