15. My most valuable coin is a
VF-20 1916D Mercury Dime. I had to buy a 1916D to complete my Mercury Dime collection, and paid $1750 for it years ago. The 2008 Red Book lists it at $4200 now, which is probably a negative return given inflation. I'd have to check.

I also have an MS-64 1928 Peace Dollar, which is listed at $1100. If I could only get someone to assess it at MS-65, it'd be worth $5500. Care to know how I snagged this beauty? Mom inherited it and didn't want it, so she gave it to me. I told her what it was worth and she just gave me a dismissive wave, so the coin is mine now.

The coins I collect these days are all Canadian. I haven't added an American coin (other than brand new coins in circulation, and of course those goddamned state quarters) since buying an AU-50 1912S Liberty Head Nickel for $750 in 2005. I wanted to complete my Liberty Head collection, and since nobody is selling their 1913s (as if I could afford one) I've gone as far as I can go with that.
