I work for an engineering firm and we play with magnets. (Drop a disk magnet down a copper tube and it will float to the bottom...). Anyway, I mentioned Canadian nickels from memory because as a kid we knew them to be magnetic. (I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio.) This morning, I checked Wikipedia and found out that pre-1982 Canadian 5-cent nickels have become scarce -- or so it was said... Unfortunately (in this context; happy otherwise), I live in Texas and we see much less Canadian coinage here. But I do have a big jar of US 5-cent nickels from emptying my change each day. So, now I will keep an eye out as I sort. Anyone else?
