2012 Canada Fine Silver 5-coin *farewell To The Penny* Set

2012 Canada Fine Silver 5-coin set - Farewell to the Penny

Sold Out Mintage of only 5,000 sets!

Packaging:
Coins are encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded wooden case lined with flock and protected by a custom beauty box.


The year 2012 marks the end of production of Canada's 1-cent piece. To celebrate the penny's long history, the Royal Canadian Mint is offering a series of commemorative pennies rendered in exquisite alloy and finishes.

Each of the five coins in this exceptional commemorative set of five Canadian 1-cent coins is certified to be 99.99% pure silver. This unique set celebrates the evolution of Canada's penny from its first striking at the Royal Mint in Ottawa (later the Royal Canadian Mint) in 1908 to the 1-cent coin's final striking at the Royal Canadian Mint's Winnipeg branch in 2012.

1902-1910: Though the reverse and obverse design of this penny predates the Royal Mint's presence in Canada, when the first coin was struck on Canadian soil in 1908, it was a penny just like this one. The reverse features the maple wreath design that had been present on Canadian 1-cent coins since the Victorian era, framing a central field featuring the words 'ONE CENT' and the year of production. The obverse features the effigy of King Edward VII.

1911-1920: In 1911, George V became king and the obverse of the Canadian 1-Cent coin changed to feature the effigy of the new monarch. At the same time, a new reverse design featuring the word 'CANADA' was introduced.

1920-1936: In 1920, the Royal Mint not only made the penny smaller but also introduced a new reverse design featuring two maple leaves and the words 'ONE CENT' and 'CANADA.' The obverse continued to feature the effigy of King George V, though complications in 1936 caused by the abdication of King George V's successor, Edward VIII, led the Mint to modify the 1936 dies in order to produce never-circulated George V 'dot cents' in the event of a delay in production of 1937 coinage.

1967: To celebrate Canada's centennial, Canadian artist Alex Colville created a special commemorative reverse design for the penny featuring a rock dove in flight.

1982-2012: In 1982, the shape of the penny was modified from perfectly circular to a 12-sided design to assist the visually impaired. This shape was maintained until 1997, when the penny became round again until its final striking in 2012. The obverse has featured four different effigies of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II since 1953. The effigy introduced in 1990, which appears on the coin in this set, was the first to be created by a Canadian: Dora de 1-cent
