1957 Canada Cent

This was the first Canadian coin to reach over 100 million in production. A mintage of that high number was not typical outside of war times but it is the trend as a healthy population keeps growing.

Countries that still issue pennies or one cent coins typically issue them in 10-20 times the number of the population. By the end one billion Canadian cents issued was close to normal. Of course that is now zero thanks to the Canadian cents end of production in 2012.

It has been almost two full years, since May 4, 2012, that they stopped making Canadian cents. Yet with over 30 billion of those pennies still in circulation it means we all will find them around for years to come.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Cent / Canada
Year: 1957
Mintage: 100,601,792
Metal: 98% Copper, 0.5% Tin, and 1.5% Zinc
Value: $0.02 in F
