    Anyone know of a Canadian Coin version of the U. S. Greysheet giving wholesale pricing updated weekly on Canadian Coins.

    I've been a dealer, both storefront and online, for over 50 years and seem to remember that there was one published in Canada years ago ... but, maybe at 74 years of age my memory banks aren't quite functioning right ... :(

    Would LOVE it if there is still one around as I am getting some Canadian stuff in for resale.

    Any help greatly appreciated. Send me an email and or PM to help out if you can.

    There is one called the "Canadian Coin Dealer Newsletter" that has wholesale prices. I believe it has four issues a year.

    Link for info:

    Hmmm ... got an email from Dianne at CDN (greysheet) and she said she believes it is no longer in publication. She said their phone number has been disconnected for around 2 years now. Sad. Guess I'll have to guestimate from Charlton. :-(

    That's about the last time I heard of it so it's possible it's gone. My dealer uses the Trends listing for resale. He takes off a certain percentage because Trends has a tendency to be a little high. Trends is in the Canadian Coin News.

    Twiggs that doesn't answer the question.

    *sigh* I was hoping to find an answer here but it's looking like I'm SOL on that. Sucks cause I've got a ton of Canadian and was looking for an easier way to decide what to mark prices to to sell on ebay.

    Though this is an old thread rejuvinated, the answer is the same. There is no Canadian grey sheet for pricing. The closest that can be gotten is the "Trends" in the Canadian Coin News and that is about full retail. Every month, they will update one denomination so, by the end of the year, you are not much better off than Charlton or Haxby. The best way, for relatively small bunches of coins, is the look at the completed auctions on Ebay ... what they actually SOLD for. There is a price link on the CoinsandCanda website, but I find it way out of whack as well, especially varieties. As a general rule of thumb up here in Canuckland, you can usually buy most coins for about 70-80% of Trends (from the CCN) and sell to dealers for about 60%, but there are huge exceptions on both ends of the grading scales.

    Can anyone advise me where to find information on the composition of a Canadian Elizabeth II Golden Jubilee 1952 - 2002 One Cent?
    (See attached photo.)

    I've made several attempts to locate this information on the Internet, including Wikipedia, but no results for this particular coin :(

    Thanks for any help you can give!

    Hi jjOO :),

    Thought I sent a reply to your post #15, but returned here and didn't see it. I'll try again, as follows:

    Thanks much for the composition data jjOO !

    If you don't mind my asking, where did you find that information?
