Although we have not provided an update over the past few months, we are still making a concerted push toward our goal of acquiring 100 pounds of nickel bullion through coin roll hunting in 2014. While finishing up school for the semester put a damper on the number of boxes that we did between March and May, we are now back into the swing of things. We have been able to acquire a more consistent approach to coin roll hunting by gaining a coin order at our local bank, which as we have mentioned in the past, significantly assists in the coin roll hunting process. All of this couldn't come at a better time, as we are significantly behind on our 100 pound goal and will need to put in a lot of effort in the second half of the year if we are going to get close, let a lone succeed, at our goal. With this new found motivation and approach in mind, lets take a look at the results from our 56th nickel box:
$100 Nickel Box #56
-83 99.9% nickel nickels (4.15%)
-3 pre-1963 Canadian nickels
-0 pre-1960 American nickels
While our most recent results here are a little bit lower than our expectations of 100 99.9% nickel nickels per box, or 5 percent, it is still always nice to be able to add 83 nickel bullion coins into the collection and is another positive step towards 100 pounds. We are very much looking forward to jumping back into more consistent updates and trying to achieve the goal that we set out on at the beginning of the year. A lot of hard work will need to be performed, so we will be sure to keep this blog updated with our results for the second half of the year. I hope all of your searches are going very well!
