2000 Canada 5 Cents

There are three versions of this coin not including the proofs. The most common is this one and has no mint marks and is made of Copper-Nickel. There is one with a P mint mark with a magnetic steel core. Lastly there is one with a W mint mark.

W is for the Winnipeg mint while O or blank is for the Ottawa mint. P is a stands for plated and is mark made at the mint but not a true mintmark. Well depending on your definition of mint mark/mintmark. I count P as a mint mark and it was more scarce in these early steel core Canadian coins from 1999-2001.  

Of course I found the most common from Ottawa that has no mintmark. Still it took longer than normal to find since nickels from Canada are used less and less.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 5 Cents / Canada
Year: 2000
Mintage: 108,514,000
Metal: 75% Copper, 25% Nickel
Value: $0.05 in Fine
