Unlike most series of coins that people collect , Newfoundland coins are a closed set, which means they are not making them any more. Each year, we get customers stating their frustration in collecting Canadian Mint Products or Canadian quarters or even USA coins for example because they simply can’t keep up with the multitude of new issues put out every year. To complete a Newfoundland set, one need only find 140 different coins and then the challenge is completed. We have customers who have taken years to complete their Newfoundland set and are now upgrading their set as they find higher grade coins. Luckily, 90 percent of Newfoundland coins can be attained for under $10 a piece. But some rare dates will be a challenge and can be expensive. There are of course those who want only high quality coins and can spend thousands of dollars a coin on their Newfoundland collection.
We are often asked what is the rarest Newfoundland coin. It is in fact whats called a 1871 mule 10 cents, which means it has an obverse of a Newfoundland 10 cent piece and a reverse of a 1871 Canadian 10 cent. If you can find one we'll pay you upwards of $100,000.
Remember, each year thousands of Newfoundland coins are melted for their silver content and many thousands more are sold to the lucrative tourist market through type sets (1 cent – 50 cents). The supply of Newfoundland coins is undoubtedly drying up which means as supply decreases, it is reasonable to expect prices to continue to rise. Are you up to the challenge (only major varieties listed)?
