In the era, there were no "Canadian" coins.


If Im correct the era goes up until 1901, when queen Victoria died. Canada most certainly had coins, they began minting them in 1870.

Canada 1882.

You're right! I just checked some of my coinage.

No, you keep it. A souvenir from a time when Canada was something other than a "post national state with no core values" (a quote from our illustrious Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau),  now a nation of legalized pot heads and a haven for ISIS and other terrorist "immigrants" wanting to return to Canada after having their butts kicked in Syria.

Do you know where I could access copies of ordnance returns ? Specifically for the 2nd battalion, 18th infantry for 1866 and companies G and H of the 9th infantry from 74' - 76'.
It appears the .pdf I made may be too large to attach. I'll send it to my adjutant and have him post it to the website.

I believe there is a company making some replica 19th century coins.   I always have a wallet full of both Yankee and Confederate currency circa 1863-1866.   In my adventures in the border states, I find having both helpful and I have a knack for "finding" it.     

It was some I printed after cleaning up some images I found online.  I have not yet bought coins.   I did have a stash of doubloons for my International Talk Like a Pirate celebration, but I have raffled them all off to help a no-kill shelter here in KC.   It seems I need to find some wandering Yankees and a stray Spanish Ship.

They have some replica coins of our era
