Bohica,

Hi! Did you complete your list? Looks like you've worked hard on this. I'm looking for one with all the Canadian circulating coins from Queen Victoria to now. Can I get a copy please?

 

Added: Is this a spreadsheet like Lotus 123 or Word document? How easy was it to update, change and move things around?

 

Thank you,

Chuck

Does anyone collect coins according to KM numbers? I mostly use KM as a reference for short-lived series or complicated types, but I've never even considered building a type set according to them.

shirohniichan: I am trying a Canada circulation set from KM1 in Extremely Fine or better. Bohica's list shows it's pretty straight forward without many sub-types at least thru KM48. Starting with Elizabeth there was an explosion of types, sub-types and NCLT's that take an effort to sort thru. The KM# list now extends past 430 with all the commems.

 

Of the first 58 coins (KM1-KM48) I have 37 (NOT 38). Some of the Victoria, Edward VII and George V stuff is pretty pricey in EF so I may have to settle for Fine or Very Fine.

 

Bohica: you missed a couple -

KM11a - 25 Cents in .925 silver - the weight was increased from 5.8100 grams to 5.8319 grams.

KM35 25 Cent in .800 silver with maple leaf - 1947 only and technically not a sub-type. India's independence caused problems for early 1948 coins because a change in legends was needed. So 1947 dies with the maple leaf added were used until the 1948 dies without 'ET IND:IMP:' were ready.

 

George VI became king in 1936 so KM# 32-48 were issued during his reign.

For the series I collect, Peruvian Soles, the experts disagree on what differentiates certain types. For example, Krause uses a design change to separate type XII soles from XIII, Ceasar Fishman uses the planchet change from 37mm to 36.5mm, and Gunter Schon uses the composition change from 90% to 50% silver as the differentiator between types. See my web page at: 20th Century Peruvian Sol Varieties

Krause's methodology is the only one that works consistently across all countries wink.gif A 1943 steel cent isn't a type and it isn't an error (a 43 copper cent would be an error). The definition of "variety" gets a little fuzzy here, though. :Q Red Book calls zinc coated steel cents "variety 2". I'm not so sure they are.
