3rd of 3 New Coins

Do you have a Canadian coin and want to find out its value? Leave a question/comment and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.

This is the last of last week's finds and the newest. I found it in my change and once again the brilliance of the coin is better in person. It looks like a proof coin, this is because the Canadian mint strikes less coins with each die then U.S. mints. A die is the tool used to press images into blank coins.

2005 Canada cent obverse.


1855f
2005 Canada cent reverse.

Here's the stats for a 2005 Canadian penny....
Year: 2005
Mintage: 759,658,000
Metal: Copper-plated zinc.
Value: About $0.25 in MS-63 grade.

The lack of exact information for new coin occurs I update when new data comes around. Plus the fact that Canadian circulating and collector's coins can be made in many varieties, metals and designs.

Knowing that in America, any silver coin dated before 1964 is 90% silver does this also apply to Canadian coins?? I have quite a few Canadian quarters dated before 1964 and wanted to know if they were valuable in the U.S??

For Canadian coins the changeover from silver to nickel happened in 1968 all coins after that date are nickel.

The average U.S. silver quarter is about $2.71.
The average Canadian silver quarter is about $2.24.
This is for silver alone some years of course are more valuable.

1968 Canadian Penny, Is It Worth anything to a coin collector?

Unless it's in perfect untouched high-grade-mint state the answer is no. Sorry.

Of course it has a metal value of about $0.03.
