Whitman folder holds Canadian 5 Cents Silver from 1858-1921, along with history on the inside flap. This is a tri-fold folder that opens flat for all at once viewing with a total of 75 openings (The number of coins minted and the year is printed below each opening, 9 blank spaces) then closes to book size for easy storage. This durable, attractive folder comes in the traditional “Whitman blue.” Inside is a narrative describing the coins and their place in Canada’s rich and fascinating numismatic history. From the early days of European colonization the hard money of British North America, including Canada, consisted of English coins and tokens, along with various French, Portuguese, Spanish and Mexican issues. In much of Canada barter was common, and colonists adopted the use of beaver pelts and other non-coin currencies. Coins for England were scarce, so to meet the growing need for small change, merchants and banks struck and issued their own copper halfpenny and penny tokens. Once the United States of America gained independence, it’s coins began to circulate north; and before Upper and Lower Canada united in 1841, some provinces issued their own semi-official tokens. In the midst of all this money, there was no official or distinctly Canadian coinage. The holes in this folder have a special LOCK-IN feature. But first, a word of caution: always hold a coin by the edge and never touch its obverse or reverse. We recommend you wear gloves when pressing your coins into place. Now that you are ready, simply place the coin with one edge tipped into the hole, and then press the high edge downward and toward the lowered edge (slantwise). Feel the snap? It’s locked in!
