Today's coin is a 1755 Spanish silver. As a footnote as a nation Canada did not issue it's first coin till 1858.

Very nice find indeed Leslie. On a side note though. I would dearly love to get to Oak island. Have you been there at all?

Dug there long before the show started. Not much there. In one episode they actually showed some ancient coins i had dug her in Nova Scotia. Show is a sham plan and simple. I do think that through out the islands off the south shore of Nova Scotia there is treasure. Yanks had privateers up here and really played heck on that coast. Be safe.!

Wow Leslie. Good for you and well done. I am Jealous now. Not seen "The Show" My interest in Oak Island stems back to the Templars. I have studied them off and on from the 70's. Totally fascinating. I would like to believe that they were the only people who could build such an intricate system as the Money Pit at the time but who knows. Also there are rumors that Templar ships did go to Nova scotia.

A lovely coin Leslie (or more accurately "yet another lovely coin").

The comment about Canada not issuing coins until 1858 intrigued me so I had a look and found this interesting article -

Is a good article. As a nation not long in history and have found most of all that has circulated here in Canuckland save for the first French coins. Thanks and be safe.
