CANADIAN ERROR COINS - DIE VARIETIES
1999 September Commemorative Twenty-Five Cents with a Regular Caribou Type Obverse. Value not yet firmly established. ($125.00-$250.00?) -Illustrated.
1999 November Commemorative Twenty-Five Cents with a Regular Caribou Type Obverse. Value not yet firmly established. ($125.00-$250.00?) -Illustrated.
1999 Mule Quarters are being found in the Millennium sets as illustrated to the left. These sets were offered by the RCM and sold across the country in postal outlets for $24.95 in Canadian funds. These coins are Proof-Like in condition.
No Mule types have been found in circulation type strikes.
The Proof-Like coins are produced in Ottawa, while those for regular circulation are produced in Winnipeg. It is very unlikely that any will appear as regular circulating coins.
It now appears that all sets shipped out of the Mint beginning in August, may contain these strikes. One or both mules may appear -or none at all. These are also appearing in sets with the "Christmas Sleeve". I would estimate -at this time- there may be more than 10,000 of each type out there. Both September and November mules seem to be turning up in equal numbers. More information will be available soon.
The highest price paid for a pair I am aware of is $1500.00 in Canadian funds. These coins have great appeal as the Denomination does not appear on the coin. Prices will be very erratic for a few months, until it bottoms out (it will slowly rise again).
I feel these coins, in time, may average more than $150.00 each.
