Canada, George V, Large 1 cent

In the reign of King George V, the Canadian Mint issued the One Cent coin in both large size and small size. They reduced the size of the coin to save money. We bought a nice group of the older large sized King George V Canadian Cent. The coins are in Fine condition and we have a few different dates available. This coin was struck only from 1912 to 1920. Dates will be of our choice but the more coins you order the more different dates we will try and give you. A perfect example of how countries save metal without reducing the face value of their coinage. The first large cent was issued under Queen Victoria and the last under George V.

Picture of Canada, Edward VII Large Cent

Canada, Edward VII Large Cent

The Canadian large Cent was only made for three Monarchs, Queen Victoria, Edward VII and George V. After that they went down to a small cent and a few years ago, they stopped making cents completely. We have always had difficulty finding the Edward VII Canadian large cents, but then a parcel came in. The coins are in Very Good – Fine condition and dates will vary, but remember that this series was only made from 1902-1910.
