1973 Canada Cent

The Canadian coins are coming in faster now than rest of the year. Most are repeats but at least they are still out there. Oh yes they are mostly cents but that is still better than nothing.



For a forty year old Canadian cent that was found in circulation it is in great shape. Canada has stopped circulating these cents which would mean most will survive in great shape. People not wanting to use these cents will hold them at home until they become annoying or needed. I expect to find less of them but it would slow down in a few years from now not immediately.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Cent / Canada
Year: 1973
Mintage: 457,059,852
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

Never heard of this error. Would be $150 or more if confirmed. But many times it could be plated.

It needs to be weighed with a 0.01gram scale and clear pictures of both sides may help.
