In this CU post I got the numbers wrong:

If I re-read the reports correctly and didn't mess up the math the melt numbers are closer to this:
$150,000 in Twenty Cent pieces were minted in 1858. This dollar amount is listed in the 1891 British Royal Mint Annual Report and is repeated in the 1906 Report as well. This equates to 750,000 coins; the figure listed in the Krause Standard Catalog Of World Coins.

Beginning in 1885 Twenty Cent coins were removed from circulation and returned to the Royal Mint for recoining. All dollar amounts listed are from Mint Annual Reports for the year in the first column.

1885 $18,000 90,000 coins
1888 $17,174 85,870 coins
1889 $16,585 82,925 coins
1894 $15,000 75,000 coins
1899 $9,500 47,500 coins
1906 an unknown number of 5, 10 and 20 Cent coins ( total face value of $7,460.75)

Total $76,259 381,295+ coins melted ( approximately 368,705 possible survivors )

That is very interesting,as I've always found the Canadian 1858 coins to be extremely elusive,especially the 20c. coin.
