Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
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 finishes.

This commemorative 1-cent piece is certified to be 99.99% fine silver selectively plated with pink gold. The coin has a diameter of 34 millimetres and a metal weight of 15.87. The reverse features G.E. Kruger-Gray’s iconic 1937 design, which 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 maple leaves and twig are beautifully plated in pink gold, providing a stunning counterpoint to the coin’s polished pure silver. The date of the penny’s last production, “2012,” is engraved just below and to the left of the central image.
