1993 Canada Cent

Have a Canada cent and want to know its value? Leave a comment

141 days until the Canada cent is rounded off into history. Although the last one was made in May of this year most financial institutions will keep distributing them until February 4, 2013. According to this recent Vancouver Sun penny article the holiday season that last from late November until late January is important enough to halt the rounders.

The 12 sided cent was an odd shape lasting from 1982-1996. Not sure about the reasoning behind it but the non-round shape still rolled well, in case they thought it would more difficult to lose them. They switched back to round coins because the copper plating system did not work well on the twelve-sided coin.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Cent / Canada
Year: 1993
Mintage: 808,585,000
Metal: 98% Copper, 0.5% Tin, 1.5% Zinc
Value: $0.03 in Very-Fine
