    It’s a StarBuck!
    You’re supposed to buy coffee with it. ;)

    “Star Notes” are replacements for bills with printing errors.

    Since they don’t repeat serial numbers, they just add a star to the end.

    Some people collect the bills with quirky serial numbers, printing errors and star notes.

    I used to check the serial numbers but I haven’t bothered to look at them in recent years.

    What are coin shops currently paying for Franklin 1/2 dollars ? In my area, Ontario Canada it is about $8.75 Cdn per coin.
    Thanks.

    The Royal Canadian Mint released a new coin that I'm seriously thinking about ordering. It commemorates one of my favourite areas of the province and looks amazing!

    Here's a link to it at the mint website if you want to see more about it.
