Canada 5 Cents  1922 to 1936
Canada 5 Cents 1922 to 1936

Hello Sadie,

Your Canadian 5 cent piece is worth less than $1 US dollar in worn condition. In average circulated, you might get up to $3. Only when the coin approaches fully uncirculated condition does the catalog value reach toward $100. And that is catalog value. Actual value is less. See the Important Terminology page for an explanation.

All dates of this coin are about equal in value, except two; 1925 and 1926.
If you have a coin dated 1925, it catalogs at $50 even when worn, and values go beyond $1500 when the coin is fully uncirculated.

Coins dated 1926 are a bit more complicated. The number 6 in the date can be either a 'Far 6' or a 'Near 6'. The far/near attribute describes how close the top of the six comes to the maple leaf. To see the difference, we refer to bobby131313's post in this CoinCommunity thread.

Coins dated 1926 with a near 6 are somewhat common, cataloging at $2 in worn condition and $15 in average circulated, but $450 in fully uncirculated condition.

Coins dated 1926 with a far 6, however, are very scarce.
They catalog at over $100 even when worn, rising to $300 in average circulated and beyond $2000 in fully uncirculated condition!

1933 is also a somewhat decent date, with catalog values of $6 in average circulated and $200 in fully uncirculated condition.

One of our favorite dealers in Canadian coins is Calgary Coin. Their nickel page tells the story on 1925-dated coins.
