1952-2002 Canada Cent

Almost two years since I found a 1952-2002 cent but that was the magnetic version with a P mint mark. This one is the more common non-magnetic version without any mint mark.


For a number of years Canada has been circulating cent coins made of two different metals. They have the zinc version like the U.S. but also make a cheaper steel core version. By making both they adjusted for rising metal costs while still keeping with tradition. Granted they stopped issuing cents altogether so they are saving the most in that way.


Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Cent / Canada
Year: 2002
Mintage: 716,367,000
Metal: 98.4% Zinc, 1.6% Copper
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.

hi. I have about $30.00 worth of Canadian Pennies I am going to go through in the process of refinishing a table top (then expoxy the top). Is there any Canadian penny I should be looking out for so that I don't bury a treasure? thanks. myfacegame@gmail.com

Just found a 1952-2002 penny in my drawer. Thought at first it didn't have a date at all but found it on the back. Would it be worth anything?
