    i was working so many hours a day, over 80 a week that I used some of the extra money I earned and bought. Now that I'm retired I'm discovering what I bought. Most of the packages I've never opened. This was in one of them that I opened today.

    Four 1/4 oz. 200 years anniversary Canadian Gold.

    It looks like you got maybe $30-40 of gold there, lol. Seriously, why do they bother to put a dollar amount on gold coins these days? Each of those is well over 40X their face value right now.

    That's why I don't organize my stuff. Every day can be like Christmas!

    Sure hope those holders are non PVC. Not sure about Canadian coins from the mint, or were those third party sealed?

    I recently came across some uncut sheets of $2 bills that I completely forgot I had.

    I suspect it's so they can call it a "coin".

    Mint sealed in Canada. So I think I'm okay. They've been in there for 9 years and no problems.

    Can you imagine some fool spending it? But they do usually list the gold content somewhere on the coin so I guess that makes it as though they’re saying just kidding about that face value! :)

    I just checked, JM Bullion is out of stock and they want over $450 per piece. Maybe I should sell them mine. Lol

    Let me guess, they’re 1976 issue. I got those too.

    I wish. I found four (4) sheets so far and they're all 2003. :(

    Remember the guy that was trying to pay for a MacDonald's order with a 1 oz AGE and they wouldn't accept it?!!

    Those are some serious sheets, Yak! I got I think 6 or 12 notes. But the 1976 ones were everywhere back in the day. I think I recall I got mine at a golf outing for my two holes-in-one on the back nine. Or maybe it was just a consolation prize for buying the tickets for the outing, yeah it rather might have been that. :D

    I would have kept the Holes-in-One. You can always buy more notes. :)
