Canada is Down to its Last Cent!

On May 4, 2012, the Royal Canadian Mint branch in Winnipeg, Manitoba, struck the very last one-cent coin. This very last cent will take up residence in the Currency Museum of the Bank of Canada, in Ottawa, Canada's capital city. Why did Canada stop minting the one-cent coin? Well, because it cost more to produce than the face value! What will happen to Canada's one-cent coins? They will remain legal tender indefinitely. However, the one-cent coins will be removed from circulation and melted by the government to recover the metal in the coins. As time goes by, the only 2012 last one-cent coins left will be in the hands of collectors, like you. That's why we rounded up these five-roll sets of 2012 cents for you. Each coin is in mint red Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition, and assembled into banker's rolls for storage. Like U.S. coins, Canadian cents come in 50-coin rolls. Order this set and you'll have 250 of these historic coins. As the government removes them from circulation and throws them into the melting pot, your coins become more and more scarce. Hurry to get yours at this remarkably low price!
