1970 Canada Cent

Do you have a Canadian cent and want to know its value? Leave a comment

Most recent find, 10th Canadian find this year, 7th 1970 Canadian cent ever found, and my oldest foreign find this year.

I should take a day trip to Canada just to dump a whole bunch of U.S. coins into circulation. Seriously 11 days without any post-worthy finds makes this little cent very welcomed.


Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Cent / Canada
Year: 1970
Mintage: 344,145,010
Metal: 98% Copper, 0.5% Tin, and 1.5% Zinc
Value: $0.02 in F

I live in Canada and I can tell you that copper coins begin to be rare here in Canada. This coin can have a good value in 100 years Actually, 1-cent coins are made of Steel and Copper Plated.

Yes I know.

I have been to your site before it is very nice although my French is not as good as it was in the past.

Thank goodness for Google translate.

How much is the value for a 1867 to 1967 Canadian coin?

1867 to 1967 Canadian coin

If you mean a Canadian cent with a dual date of 1867-1967 it is just about $0.02.

I have a 1970's Canadian quarter that has Elizabeth 2 on front and a Canadian moose on the back. I was wondering how much it'd be worth today?

Just face value. Unless you have some errors or varieties.

I have a 1940 & 1942 penny, and also have a 1970 quarter with an very small round dent on the caribou side, is that a mintage error or did something just damage it before it got into my hands?

Man said...

1940 & 1942 penny about $0.15 each

1970 quarter with an very small round dent on the caribou side
--Just $0.25 and yes the dent is damage.

1970 quarter CDN that has a raised dot between the 7 and 0

Sounds like a Die Break error, no extra value.

Counter stamp made after.
It is considered damage, no extra value.

I have found a strange Canadian coin. It looks like it is an error coin, as if one coin was struck in error then another was put over top of the front and then the two were banded together. It is a 1970 Elizabeth, 1 cent coin but it is minted in what looks like maybe nickel possibly. Just curious if this is rare?

Possible error it needs to be weighed with a 0.01 gram scale
