And even a couple rolls of AU 1997 up

@PamR …to add perspective: 76 years from now your 1999 Canadian Cent will be 100 years old. It is KM #289, composed of copper plated steel and appears to be in a grade approx. AU58RB.
MS60/NGC World Coin Guide list it for 10 cents USD…your coin is currently valued at 2-5 cents.
But if preserved in a flip at a minimum, in the year 2099 (a complete lifetime from now) it could be worth 10 to 20 times more. The Royal Canadian Mint pumped out over 1.089 billion of these. No telling now how many will survive or what their demand might be then…imo…Spark
Yes I have found so many Canadian cents especially in dad’s pile that look pretty good. I’m keeping of course for my son.
Thanks. Not really worried of the value. I like the Canadian cent for its elegant appearances. Keep for my son and then in 99, who knows maybe my granddaughter will appreciate the beauty or just may sell all. No telling what will be used in 1999.
And thanks again!
And the Queen.. just nice looking cents. Thanks!
I sit corrected. I checked out the ‘99 (no mint mark) at Coins and Canada and saw what you meant. The mintage for the year lumps all the 3 types together.
The NGC World listing for the KM #289 says all are copper plated steel, as I now know is incorrect…. thanks for the nudge in the right direction…Spark
