1977 Canada Cent

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

It has been a while since I found a Canadian cent in my change that was not already featured on this blog. Seems more than likely that I will post about these less and less as time goes on. Of course the retirement of the Canadian cent plays a part but also I think since I started this blog I found almost all of the modern Canadian cents, as well as many older ones.
 
 

The coin itself is fairly common and the metal value is the only thing that makes it special. That said I do like the grease spots on obverse all over the queen. Look like she may have some sort of pox, although she was ill this past week. Since I do not believe in coins as omens I will say it was just my mind making connections.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Cent / Canada
Year: 1977
Mintage: 453,050,666
Metal: 98% Copper, 0.5% Tin, 1.5% Zinc
Value: $0.03 in Very-Fine

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

I have a 1943 copper Canadian penny. I know the US pennies of that year are valuable, what about the Canadian 1943's?

Thank you,
Walt

1943 copper Canadian penny about $0.25

Canada never stopped using copper, they actually stopped making nickel coins during WWII

My neighbour has a Canadian 1956 penny, correct in size and is stamped like a regular 1956 penny, but is stamped out of nickel. Looking for information.

In needs to be weighed with a 0.01 gram scale to know if it is a true error.
