2009 Bahamas Cent

First of the smaller copper-plated zinc cents, from 2009 to present they have been used. Smaller production and many years skipped still does not make this coin rare.

Obverse of a 2009 cent from Commonwealth of the Bahamas
Reverse of 2009 cent from the Bahamas, starfish, value


The previous issue was the same composition but 19mm compared to this one at 17mm. Also it is lighter at 1.75g compared to the previous 2.50g. Not sure how much money was saved since the production historically is small but any cost saving is good, I guess.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Cent / Bahamas
Year: 2009
Mintage: Unknown
Metal: Copper-Plated Zinc
Value: $0.02 in XF
