P is for Magnetic. Okay maybe not. It is definitely not for Philadelphia instead it is for Plated-steel. While this is my 433rd Canada Cent it is only my 6th steel cent. I assume these show up less because they were made in lower amounts and they get rejected more in American machines. All that leads to less circulation.
I like that the reverse is blank. I know some people get confused by this but as a commemorative coin it is very low key.
Wondering now in 2012 for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee will they do something special. Oh wait they just printed their last cent a while ago. I guess she is not getting any Canada cent love.
Here's the stats...Type/Country: 1 Cent / Canada
Metal: 94.0% Steel, 4.5% Copper, and 1.5% Nickel
Value: $0.01 in F
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.
