Bushie, I'll be out at 1874 and alot of years between 1874 and 1966. I am dying to see this pan out keep posting all, we should all have some "special year" coins coming up soon.... (birthday years) etc..

Hoping when we get to the "Good stuff" Some spectacular coins show themselves :o 8)

Correct me if I am wrong but isnt there a year in the mid late 1980s where no gold or silver coins were relesed? only done in mint sets for collectors ect??? still have a funny feeling they done the coppers so might have to look at the brown bugger pile?

There were also a number of silver coins not minted in the war years between the 30's & the 40's
