1962 Canada Cent

Do you have Canadian cent and want to know its value? Comment


Last of trio of Canadian cents found all at once. Started with a 2011 then 1978 finally 1962 that is a 49 year span of Canadian goodness. As usual half way through the year and Canadian finds are dominating all other foreign coins.

Tell me this does not look like the photos by Moyra Davey.

Should have saved this for Canada Day on July 1 but that is still a bit far.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Cent / Canada
Year: 1962
Mintage: 227,244,069
Metal: 98% Copper, 0.5% Tin, 1.5% Zinc
Value: $0.03 in AG

Do you have a cent from Canada and want to know its value? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you

You could be the American Moyra Davey, doing something similar with Canadian cents.

What books is that, by the way? You've piqued my interest.

--Too lazy, plus film is always better and I do not have a film camera. She is very anti-digital cameras.

What books is that, by the way?
--Do you mean my background? It was just a credit card ad.

You do not have a film camera? I forgive you.

Yeah, I meant your background. Again, I forgive you. :)

Hi there, well you inspired me to dig through my canadian change collection! The oldest Canadian cents that I found dated 1942, 1955 & 1958... Are they pretty common? Thank you! Btw I love your site, I have collected wheat pennies and various change over the years and my friends and family think its odd but I see I am not alone haha :)

Man said...

Technically I have an old Kodak but they no longer sell film, batteries or the flash cube for it so it is dead to me.

Man said...

Canadian cents that I found dated 1942, 1955 & 1958
--All common but still about $0.10 each.

...but I see I am not alone haha :)
--Thanks I think these coins are cool and I don't mind that they are common. Keep collecting.

okay, so I know this is WAY off topic here, but I need to know something.. I have a Republic of Texas 5 dollar bill, that was printed in 1842,,, about 3 years before Texas became a actual state in 1845, there is no serial number on it like there is for mordern day bills, so my question is this, How much is this 5 bill worth ?

Man said...

Republic of Texas 5 dollar bill, that was printed in 1842

Average in extra-fine is about $200.00 if cut or canceled.

That said there are so many varieties, grades, and replicas that it is beyond my expertise.

This site has many examples and may be willing to help...

If not try a local dealer or coin club.

Hello! I would like to ask, what is today's value of a 1936 Canadian Penny?

And could you please enlighten me with what most home coin collectors use to store all there older coins in?

Looking forward to your response. Thank you.

Man said...

1936 Canadian Penny about $0.15

what most home coin collectors use to store all there older coins in?
Most use tins, felt lined boxes, coin tubes, or archival safe envelopes.
For very little money a lot of collectors use 2x2 coin holder, you can buy a 100 for a few dollars.

The main point for amateur collectors is to keep them in a cool, dry, dark place. Away from cheap plastic and bad paper. Keep checking the coins for tarnish or other changes and if that occurs try spending more for a better/safer coin holder.

I have a 1950 and 1945 canadian penny. And two 1867 to 1967 Canadian pennies. I also have a 1958 American penny? Are they worth more than their face value?

Man said...

1950 and 1945 canadian penny about $0.10 each
1867 to 1967 Canadian pennies about $0.02 each
1958 American penny about $0.05

I found what I think was a penny in my change. It's the same size as a penny and has a green tarnish that would make it copper but it also has a good amount of rust on it. Any idea why it would rust like this?

I put the Canadian penny beside just for scale.

Man said...

Water.
This is verdigris, copper reacts with water and "salts" to form copper(II) acetate. It is why the Statue of Liberty is green.

The inside of a penny from Canada is zinc or steel.
Zinc reacts with water/oxygen and turns into a white powdery rust.
Steel of course reacts with water/oxygen and turns into the rust you see.

What is the value of a Canadian penny missing the year on it?

Just $0.01 because this type of error is considered damage. Unless you meant something else like a dual-date.
