2006 RCM Logo Canada Dime

Just like yesterday's featured Canadian coin this one came in two circulating version. Both are copper-nickel plated steel but one has a P mint mark the other has the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) logo.


While the actual mintage of both version are not fully known they seem to be common and easily available. There is also a version with no mint mark but it was not issued for circulation and is much more scarce.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 10 Cents / Canada
Year: 2006 RCM Logo
Mintage: Some fraction of 312,122,000
Metal: 92% Steel, 5.5% Copper, and 2.5% Nickel
Value: $0.10 in Extra-Fine

Do you have ten cents 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.

Very cool... is that some toning around the edges too? Been really getting into nice toned coins... Hard to find in circulation though, besides more modern coins.

No, the coin seems to have some damage from a liquid and is starting to rust.

Ahhh... well maybe the next one will be toned nicely for you :)

I prefer blast white coins, toning can be nice but not really my favorite.
