2012 Fine Silver 5 Coin Penny Set - Farewell To The Penny Rare Low Mintage 5000 For Sale
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.
