Mintage of only 12,000 coins!
Though the humble penny will one day disappear, its unique role in the history of Canadian coinage remains timeless. Celebrate the history of the penny with your beautiful fine gold coin. A perfect gift for you or someone you know who wants to remember and cherish the penny. Your coin uses G.E. Kruger-Gray’s iconic 1937 design that was used as the Canadian 1-cent piece reverse image from 1937 to 2012, with the sole exception of 1967. The image features two upright five-lobed maple leaves, the larger one on the right slightly overlapping the smaller leaf on the left. Both are attached by their stems to a small twig. The date of the penny’s last production, “2012,” is engraved just below and to the left of the central image. The word “CANADA” is engraved across the central bottom portion of the reverse field. Opposite this word, across the centre top portion of the coin, is the face value of “1 CENT.” The reverse and obverse sides are framed with a beaded circle. Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell case lined with flock and protected by a customized beauty box. Accompanied by a serialized certificate - your proof of ownership for this coin and evidence that your coin has been individually inspected by Royal Canadian Mint quality assurance specialists.
