2009 Canada Cent, Zinc

The zinc 2009 Canadian cent is the less common of the two versions. A steel core version was made in about 12 times the quantity. The steel is magnetic and that is the only simple way to tell the two types apart.

Even though this one is more scarce it does not have any extra in circulated condition. In mint state or higher it is about $1.00 more than its steel version. Canadian pennies have always been made to turn a profit and changing their composition was not a national crisis or a fake crisis like in the U.S.. When they finally deemed unprofitable they were ended.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Cent / Canada
Year: 2009
Mintage: 36,575,000
Metal: 98.4% Zinc, 1.6% Copper
Value: $0.01 in AU
