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

Canada, Newfoundland, George VI, 3 Coin Set

We have put together a nice three-coin type set of the King George VI coins from Newfoundland. Of course, Newfoundland is now part of Canada, but since the time of Queen Victoria, they have issued their own coinage. Because the population of Newfoundland is so small, the mintages on these coins are also rather small and it is a country that no longer issues its own coins. You get the bronze Penny plus the Silver 5 Cents and the 10 Cents of King George VI, all issued under the name of Newfoundland. The coins are in Fine or better condition and we think the three coins make a nice type collection of their coinage. They don’t make coins of Newfoundland any more, but we have the set for your collection. The history behind the coins is most interesting and so are the coins themselves.
