D.K. writes: Dear Doc, I have found a nickel which was made in 1967 that has rabbit printed on the front. It is in very good condition. I was told that this is a commemorative coin however I haven’t been able to locate it. I would like to know how much it is worth. Please help me out. Thanx.
The nickel is Canadian and is just one of the 1967 Confederation Centennial commemoratives. There were 36,876,574 regular business strike “rabbit” nickels minted. The coin is also part of the Centennial proof-like set that includes all the base metal and silver coins as well as a special $20 gold piece. The coin’s market value is less than US20 cents but it would be fun to try to complete the set by hunting for the other regular issue coins of 1967.
