Buy with Confidence
Own a 5 oz. fine silver tribute to Canada’s last penny.
Canada’s penny returns… as a 5 oz. fine silver coin! To mark the 10th anniversary of the last Canadian one-cent circulation coin ever minted, the Royal Canadian Mint brought back G. E. Kruger Gray’s iconic maple leaf twig design and reproduced it on a bigger scale—and in 99.99% pure silver. With its 65 mm diameter, this limited-edition tribute offers you an enlarged view of all those familiar details. And there’s a twist: a reproduction of the last penny struck in 2012 has been incorporated into this coin’s reverse, where it forms the “0” in the year “2022”.

A COIN RE-CREATED ON A COIN
A 2012 one-cent coin—the last of Canada’s pennies—forms the “0” in the year “2022.”
DID YOU KNOW?
- Roughly 35 billion Canadian one-cent coins were minted between 1908 (the Royal Canadian Mint's first year of operations as the Ottawa branch of the Royal Mint) and 2012, when the last penny was struck at the high-tech facility in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
DESIGN & ARTIST
The coin’s reverse is an enlarged version of G. E. Kruger Gray’s iconic maple leaf twig design, as seen on Canadian one-cent circulation coins issued from 1937 to 2012 (with the exception of 1967). The design features two upright, five-lobed maple leaves attached to a small twig. A reproduction of the last penny struck in 2012 stands in for the number “0” in the year “2022”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
Each coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a black beauty box.
