Hello, ric-san, I didn't see anything about any iron in your lists on the Canadian coins but they all have it because they are strongly
attracted to a magnet. Even the Loonie (1 dollar coin) and the toonie (the 2 dollar coin) I live right near the Canadian border and often go over there. We also have a lot of their coins floating around this Southeastern part of michigan.
