Atom Sharing

Aside from that one atom donates both electrons to form a coordinate covalent bond, are there any other characteristics that differ between a coordinate and regular covalent bond?

Honestly, I think that's the only difference, I don't see any other difference. Hope this helps!

I think the only difference between them is that coordinate covalent bonds share a pair of electrons and a covalent bonds shares one electron.

I believe that is the only difference: in coordinate covalent bonds, one atom donates two electrons to the bond and in covalent bonds, both atoms donate one electron to the bond.

There is also an electronegativity difference, because coordinate covalent bonds are more polar

Could someone post an example of a coordinate covalent bond and a regular covalent bond?
