Canada is made up of a number of different countries or provinces. Three of them issued coins on their own and now is your opportunity to own one of them. Canada is a vast country and has been settled by many different and varied nationalities. But three parts of Canada issued their own coins. You have New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island plus Canada. They issued bronze pennies all of which had a portrait of Queen Victoria on them. Here we present the Canadian Large Cent. It is well over 100 years old and not that easy to find.

Canada, Prince Edward Island 1c

One of the most North Eastern Provinces of Canada is Prince Edward Island. They only made a coin once for this area and that was in 1871. You have the crowned portrait of Queen Victoria on one side and a pine tree on the other. This was a large One Cent coin and it was the only coin ever struck for Prince Edward Island and it was minted for just one year, 1871. The coins are in Fine or better condition and if you are trying to put together one coin from each country, you will definitely need this one. Our agent has been going to Canada twice a year for two years to put this group together. After all there are a lot of people who want a coin from Prince Edward Island and not a lot of coins to go around. A very important type coin and the only coin of the country.

Canada, George V Large & Small Cents

Governments worldwide are issuing more and more paper money; they call it QE or Quantitative Easing. We call it making our money worth less and less and if you really need an example, how about Germany in the early 1920s? At that time money became of so little value that someone saw a basket of banknotes, they left the notes and stole the basket! In Canada, during the reign of King George V, we have an excellent example of what inflation can do. We have the Canadian Large Cent of King George V, issued 1911-1920. Then in 1920 they reduced the size greatly and kept this smaller size until 1936. We offer the Large and Small-sized 'Penny' or One Cent coins of King George V, so you can show your friends what inflation can do to coins. Let’s hope it doesn’t happen here… Large size cent issued from 1911-1920 and the small cent issued from 1920-1936
