2003-P Canada Quarter, New Effigy

Have Canadian quarter and want to know its value? Leave a comment

When you have a living person on a coin that seemingly will never die you have to upgrade every few years. 2003 was one of those upgrade years when they changed the mature Queen to the new older Queen. Not exactly elderly but more grandma-like. They did away with the crown and dropped in a wrinkle or two.

 The reverse stayed the same with that iconic caribou.

2003 saw two caribou Canadian quarters. The first had the older design which was the younger queen, the second had the newer design which has the older queen. To make it easier they are referred to the old effigy and new effigy. I have yet to find the 2003 old effigy because it was made in a lower quantity about a 1:4 ratio in favor of the new effigy. Below is the old and new side by side, a 2001-P and 2003-P.

Here are the official names of all the portraits of the queen on the Canadian quarter:
  • Laureated Portrait (1953-1964)
  • Tiara Portrait (1965-1989)
  • Royal Diademed Portrait (1990-2003) 
  • Uncrowned Portrait (2003- ) 

Here are the stats...
Type/Country: 25 Cents-New Effigy /Canada
Year: 2003-P
Mintage: 66,861,633
Metal: 94% Steel, 3.8% Copper, 2.2% Nickel
Value: $0.25 in EF-40

Back in early 60's I worked at FED in Cincinnati. I found in my wrapping machine a newly minted penny struck on a lock washer. All coins I was wrapping came directly from the mint. About 10 years later I sold the coin to someone from California who was attending a coin show that was in town in Cinti. I know this was an extremely rare find and had never seen one in Spadone's guide book. The lock washer amazingly had the date struck on it. I sold it for $500. and suspect the guy I sold it to got at least double that when he sold it. Have you seen this coin in amy publications or on line and what do you think it is worth today?

There is a 2003 proof quarter to be on the lookout for. This error is a double struck die error that was somehow struck with a 2008 die as well. And if you examine it closely he will also be able to tell that it was struck with a dime as well. This ultra-rare lower volume quarter is projected to bring somewhere in the 50 to $80,000 range.

I have a Canadian 2003 P new effigy quarter which has a engraved ring that goes through the word Canada and runs just below the date and goes through the neck just below the second notch in the caribou neck before coming back to the word Canada. Think it might be worth something?
