    Penny hunting log for Canadian Hunter (I see the trend...good idea!)

    As I observed many of us have started their personal logs in lieu of daily/weekly finds or occasional finds.
    I think it is a good idea, because everything is kept in one place, plus less posts happening.
    I see the idea of personal CRH logs as a future of TNet: Coin Roll Hunting

    Anyway, here will be my penny hunting log for Canadian penny. As you know guys that RCM had announced 2012 being the last year of Canadian penny. In September, the ordering of penny boxes will become a bit tougher, because at that time the melting machines will start scrapping the pennies from source banks.
    Me, That Canadian Guy and CanadaCoinHunting are focused on penny searching. In this b/log I will post results and pics for my penny hunting.
    Hope you guys enjoy it. Look forward to answer your questions on Canadian coinage and especially cent coins.

    I do recommend, especially the new 2012 (low mintage +last year) and King George VI (pre 1953).

    nice hunting, I am liking this thread, hope you score huge, I would put aside a few sealed penny boxes myself considering I believe America will be soon to follow the scrapping of the penny,

    The spark didn't happen in Canada though. I think it was either EU or Australia, who first decided to get rid of the lowest denomination.

    Great idea! You do a lot of boxes, so it will be very interesting to see what you come across.

    I would strongly recommend hanging on to the pre-1953 King George pennies as Canadian Hunter has mentioned. Also, if you are like me and hoard copper pennies as well as older coins, then Canadian pennies before 1997 (i.e. 1996 and earlier) are made from 98% copper, and in my opinion, are worth keeping for their metal content.

    What was the foreign coin? I can help you ID it too if BB couldn't.
    1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.

    Australia


    A few EU countries make 1 and 2 euro cent coins, but don't use them.

    That is very likely to happen in Canada in 2013. The pennies will still be minted, but only in limited mintage, alike Canada 50 cent rolls. They will be sold at Canada Post offices for maybe 4-5$ a roll. There will be also proof and specimen silver and non silver pennies.

    To clarify, only the EU countries (Netherlands, I think Finland) don't circulate their low denominations, but still make them (although I do have a few from circulation). Australia melted all their 1 and 2 cent coins in circulation to make Olympic medals for Sydney 1996.

    Thanks for info.
    BTW, did Australia melt those coins just because the country was very poor or those cent coins were made of gold?

    hit up all the pennies you can while you still can! what a shame they are going to melt them all, think of all the errors and key dates never found, only to be scrapped. It's kind of sad

    They used them to make Bronze medals. I guess they melted their Kookaburas (silver medals) and Gold Nuggets (gold medals), too.
