1956 Canadian Cent

With a limited number of Canadian cents out in the wild now finding them is becoming a little more difficult. Still there are billions out there so it is not rare at all.

I found at least 68 unique Canadian coins from 1916 to 2012. There are over 100+ cents between that time and I have most of the later issues. Now it is all about finding the older ones.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Cent / Canada
Year: 1956
Mintage: 78,685,535
Metal: 98% Copper, 0.5% Tin, 1.5% Zinc
Value: $0.50 in Very-Good

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

Hey Man, its Aussie Kid here, although I've grown up since and am not so young anymore. I was just wondering if you use this blog anymore and if you remember me from when I commented a lot a few years ago. I would like to point out that my coin collection is going well, largely thanks to the tips and advice you gave me all those years ago :)

hi coin man,
i'm wondering how to go about finding a couple Canada key date pennies in PAGE FILLER condition- i'm cheap, i don't care how poor the quality as long as the date is legible. i just want to finish a childhood project, 35 years later and wouldn't you know the 2 pennies i still need are the pricey ones. all ebay ever seems to list look to be in great shape and therefore priced way over what i am willing to spend.
what would you do if you were trying to fill a couple key date slots on the cheap?

Coin forums, talking with other collectors is always best.
