FAREWELL TO THE PENNY 5 COIN SET

ONLY 5000 SETS WORLD WIDE

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
