Own this "W" mint mark tribute to Canada's penny! It was 10 years ago, in 2012, that the last Canadian penny was struck at our Winnipeg facility. Now, a decade later, the cent's maple leaf twig design has been brought out of retirement for a limited appearance on this 99.99% pure silver tribute. Struck in a tailored specimen finish, the maple leaves feature a soft satin finish, while the field is filled with angled lines that meet at the centre. Those lines are a nod to our pyramid-shaped Winnipeg facility where this "W" mint mark coin was struck, and where all our pennies were minted between 1976 and 2012.Relive your memories of the penny with this "struck in Winnipeg" tribute. A tribute to the penny! Tailored specimen silver coin pays tribute to Canada's copper-coloured cent on the 10?? anniversary of the last penny struck at our Winnipeg facility.
With a 38 mm diameter, this coin is nearly double the size of a 2012-dated penny (19.05 mm). Its enlarged view brings renewed appreciation for a design that was once an everyday part of our lives. Only 15,000 are available to collectors worldwide. The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins.
