Description

A beloved classic gets a contemporary update on this 5 oz. 99.99% pure silver coin from the Royal Canadian Mint.
It was 10 years ago, in 2012, that the last Canadian penny was struck at our Winnipeg facility. Until that moment, the copper-plated cent was everywhere: it jingled in the pockets and purses of Canadians for generations, filled countless coin jars and its maple leaf twig design was a part of our everyday lives. Now, a decade later, its iconic design has been given a new life—and a modern twist—on this reverse gold-plated collectible, which features a precious gleam that outshines even the brightest penny.

KEY FEATURES:

  •  A 10th anniversary tribute. Enjoy this nostalgic look back at Canada’s one-cent circulation coin, as the Royal Canadian Mint marks the 10th anniversary of the last penny struck at its Winnipeg facility.
  • Reverse gold plating. This coin is crafted from 5 oz. of 99.99% pure silver, which is only visible on the effigy and select design elements on the reverse—the rest is plated with yellow gold (indicated by the “P” composition mark on the obverse).
  •  A rare collectible. Only 1,500 are available to collectors worldwide.
