1969 Canada Cent

This primo coin was out of sight back in 1969. As we hang loose here and jam with this keen coin we will reflect on the 1960s. 

By this time most countries gave up on silver coins and copper was mixed in everything. The next few years would see experiments in coin materials like aluminum cents and plastic currency. Although they never caught on it seems 50 years later that technology and inflation will make them real.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Cent / Canada
Year: 1969
Mintage: 335,240,929
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

Yes, but it is a Die Break error so it has little extra value maybe a few dollars in high grade.
