CheerioCoins 2022 Annual YN Auction Pick-ups!

| CheerioCoins

Today was the 2022 Annual YN Auction and I had a blast! I bid on around 12 lots and started with 1630 YN Dollars. I ended up winning 3, maybe 4 lots in this years auction and I was happy to see some of you guys there. This year they did it on Google Meets instead of Youtube.


The first lot I bid on and won is the 1899-O Morgan Dollar and I won it for 705 YN Dollars. That is about half of my total but I really liked the coin. The coin is worth around $96 according to PCGS Price Guide. It is 90% Silver and 10% Copper and has a mintage of 12,290,000. It was minted at the New Orleans mint which I really like. I don't think I have any other coins from the New Orleans mint since they only minted gold and silver coins from 1838 to 1909.


The second lot I bid on and won a 1916 Canadian cent for 135 YN Dollars. I really like to collect Canadian coins so this was a great lot! The coin has a minatge of 11,022,367 and can be worth around $9.25, according to Numista. The obverse features King George V, it was minted by the Royal Canadian Mint and has a composition of bronze. King George V Canadian Cents were minted from 1912-1920.


The third coin I bid on and won is a PCGS MS-66 1944-P Jefferson nickel for 370 YN Dollars. It has a mintage of 119,150,000 and can be worth around $42 according to PCGS Price Guide. The coin has some nice luster and stood out to me. Its 35% Silver which makes it worth as much as it is. The forth coin is a PCGS MS-66 1941-S Lincoln cent that I'm not sure if I won yet but I emailed Sam Gelberd to find out.


I just want to say thanks to Sam, the people at ANA, and all the people who donated the lots. Thank you for reading my blog and have a great day!

You have my full attention. I love those Canadian large cents. I'm seeking them out in red-brown exclusively, that reverse is stunning against a maroon/fire red field! I've got several so far. Thanks for sharing your's and hope it grows in size.

AWESOME wins!! Way to go Cheerio!! Sounds like a really great time. Unfortunately, I’m a little too old for that. Just curious, how much is a YN dollar worth, and how do you get them?

Most lots went for roughly ten times their retail dollar value (E.G. a ten dollar coin goes for about 100YN$) you can get them from doing blogs, school projects, and being active in the coin collecting community.
