Iron acceptance and the coins you folks have north of the US border. I used to find quite a few Canadian coins when I lived in the greater Portland Oregon metro area, especially through the '70s and '80s, but more limited numbers since then. because they are man-made and in their roundish shape, they can produce more of those Bottle Cap type higher-reading responses, but also be more masked / eliminated with a too-brisk sweep speed.

If I recall, the silver coins Canada had, in smaller denomination change, were 80% from 1920 to about 1967, and 92.5% silver in 1919 and earlier. Just over 100 years ago they reduced the silver content so you definitely need to lurk around older-use sites to get lucky. All of the Nickel and / or steel base-metal coins you have can sure get annoying at times, I'm sure.
