    S20240709_0001.jpg I found this in a large jar of pennies. This does not have the maple leaf on the back of the penny. Is this an error coin?

    Why does a Canada coin say 1Cent. No really

    Because it was minted in North America. Penny is a British term.
    That's why many coin collectors say we shouldn't call a US Cent a Penny.

    This is what a CT Canadian error pennie looks like.

    It doesn't have a maple leaf either. It has 16 little ones.

    I don't pretend to know Canadian history that well, but all that happened in 1867 was that the provinces were united into the Dominion of Canada. It wasn't until 1931 that the British parliament no longer had the power to pass or nullify their laws, which kinda sorta made them independent. I think they weren't truly independent until 1982.

    Copy. Yeah I don't know Canadian history well either. But I do know their 100 year anniversary of independence coins were in 1967 :).

    Guess it pays to fight for independence rather than just saying please and waiting.
