Not a coinstar find, but I Got a 1981 Mex 5 pesos in my change. Mintage of only 30.5 million.
Interweb says it could be worth upwards to $.94!

I cashed out my change jar last Sunday at Publix. Winn Dixie has removed their coin counters, and those ratz at TD Bank don't intend to replace their counters.

Anyway, the machine at Publix has a large bowl where you place the coins, and they drop into the counter. I fed in $67.38 but noticed that one of the coins was "stuck" to the side of the bowl.

I'm thinking these machines have a have magnetic coil under the bowl. The coin that stuck was a Canadian quarter, but I was able to pass it along at the local bodega around the corner.

I sometimes hit on a few coins, but have not found any silver in 2 years of use. Nothing found for this trip...maybe next month.
