Default 1903 Canadian 5 Cent

Found this while moving pea-gravel in my kids play area. Hear a metallic "TINK" on the shovel and looked town to see this beauty. This is the oldest coin i have ever found and it is pretty exciting. Any idea what the value might be?

Depends on the exchange rate!

Just kidding.

Cool.

1903 Edward 7th five cent silver. 1,000,000 minted the lowest number in the series. The coin is .925 silver (sterling) and probably worth about $5-$25 dollars depending on the grade. Very nice find.
If it grades above EF45 then the price goes up to $45 or more.
