2006 Canada Cent, RCM Logo Zinc

Have a Canadian penny and want to know its value? Leave a comment

Of the six varieties of 2006 Canadian pennies I have two with this recent find. Four of them are common and two are scarce and carry extra value. As usual the ones I own are very common and hold no extra value.


The six varieties are:
  • 2006 - Copper Plated Zinc 
  • 2006 - Copper Plated Steel
  • 2006 RCM Logo - Copper Plated Zinc
  • 2006 RCM Logo - Copper Plated Steel
  • 2006 P - Copper Plated Zinc    
  • 2006 P - Copper Plated Steel
The easy way of telling zinc from steel is using a magnet. Steel is magnetic while zinc is not magnetic. Any common magnet will do even the refrigerator magnets. RCM stand for Royal Canadian Mint which started using the little circled maple leaf on the front of cents in 2006 if I am correct.

2006 - Copper Plated Steel and 2006 P - Copper Plated Zinc are the ones with the most value about $75.00 and $100.00 in mint state respectively. They were made in much lower numbers but I hope to find all of them in my change.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Cent / Canada
Year: 2006 RCM Logo
Mintage: 176,000,000
Metal: 98.4% Zinc, 1.6% Copper
Value: $0.01 in AU

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

Hi, I have an odd penny, it has the RCM logo which means its magnetic, but it isn't magnetic! I tried researching, but nothing came up. Can you please help me? Thanks!

What year? Most newer Canadians cents are made with zinc or steel and have the RCM logo.

Hi, wondering if you might be able to help me. I have 5 uncirculated 2006 canadian pennies, no P, no mint, not magnetic. I've seen the articles for 2006 no P, no logo, magnetic and the 2006p no logo , non magnetic. In addition I have two 2003p both magnetic no logo as I don't think they would how ever the obverse is , one crown old version one non crown new version. Where there 2 canadian pennies produced in 2003 that you know of where they changed the obverse of Elazabeth II. ? Any insight would greatly be appreciated.

Thank you,
Diane

--About $0.01 each these are the most common.

2003p both magnetic no logo as I don't think they would how ever the obverse is , one crown old version one non crown new version
--About $0.01 although the old version was made in larger numbers, both are common.
Of the common circulating types 2 had the old version and 2 had the new versions. With or without P mint marks.
