Canadian Nickel Album


Recommended Posts

I got tired of waiting for Dansco to come out with the Canadian albums they promised about 4 years ago and I got a Whitman Canadian 5 cent album 1922-..... The ports are dated up to 1989.

My question is since 1989 what years have more that one issue? The new V nickel came in that time frame as did the Mint marks.


Any help with a list?

There's some mintmarks. P on some issues. W on those minted for non-circulating PL sets from the Winnipeg mint.


Also for 2003P there's the new and old effigy (crowned, uncrowned).


Oh and 1996 there's a "near" and "far" 6 varieties. I don't know the diagnostics of it though.

I really like this set. Just the right amount of variety. Tombacs, commems, mint marks.

I have 77 of 102 circulation issues.


That's nice. I like Canadian nickels but they're very hard to find where I live. Maybe I need to do more nickel searches.

I am currently filling mine from circulation and I still need a couple of the 1920s era dates and one from the 1930's. The little varmints do turn up in my roll searches. Usually I do not keep the post 1981 five centers as they are not all nickel. I did find and kept the only 2005 V nickel and one of the regular types - the V nickel is sort of scarce in circulation apparently.


BTW if there are any 1940s-1980 dates you need I can see if I have duplicates in my hoard of circ. finds.
