Nickel Trade Unit - Canadian - 10 Pounds

Product Information

Canadian nickels were minted from .999 fine nickel metal from 1955 through 1981, when a copper-nickel alloy was implemented to reduce the material cost.  The composition was later changed to a steel alloy.

Electronic sorting equipment is used to separate 999 nickels from cupronickel and steel nickels.  A 10 pound Nickel Trade Unit contains approximately $50 face value.

About Nickel Trade Units

Visit for more detailed information.

The Trade Unit standard is designed to bring consistency to the base metal coin bullion market by utilizing durable packaging, standardized weights, and trusted processors to ensure a high-quality and highly recognizable product, facilitating easier trade among coin holders and dealers alike.

Trade Units are packaged in traditional canvas coin bags for long-term durability.  The heavyweight bags are hand printed in the USA, using US-manufactured screen printing equipment and supplies.  The Trade Unit marking on one side of the bag denotes the country and denomination of coin, the metal composition, and the gross weight.

The other side of the bag features the business information of the approved processor or merchant where the Trade Unit originated.  Although all processors package Trade Units to the same high quality standards, some merchants offer buy-back incentives for Trade Units branded with their business name.

Trade Unit bags are closed with a crimped double string seal featuring a holographic serial number.  The string seal can only be removed by cutting the strings and is not reusable, and the holographic serial number is tamper evident and will self destruct if removal is attempted.

In addition, a numbered paddle seal is threaded through the bag above the crimped seal.  Approved merchants can check the combination of the holographic serial number and the paddle serial number against the Trade Unit database to verify that the product was packaged by an approved Trade Unit processor.  Sealed bags can be traded with confidence that the product inside is of the advertised composition and weight.
