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

Hello Sadie,

Approximate values for Canadian 5 cent pieces run like this:

worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $3
well preserved: $5
fully uncirculated: $12

These are catalog values. Actual values are less. See the Important Terminology page for an explanation.

All dates of this coin are about equal in value, except a few special dates detailed below.

CANADA 5 CENTS 1925:
worn: $50 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $100
well preserved: $180
fully uncirculated: $300

CANADA 5 CENTS 1931 TO 1934:
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $4
well preserved: $20
fully uncirculated: $150

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. Coins dated 1926 with a far 6 are scarce.



CANADA 5 CENTS 1926 NEAR 6:
worn: $3 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $15
well preserved: $65
fully uncirculated: $300

CANADA 5 CENTS 1926 FAR 6:
worn: $80 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $200
well preserved: $450
fully uncirculated: $900

I have many Canadian coins how do I grade with out making a mistake and sell whole lot at fair price - Amber Carr
Grading is part of the fun, and the agony, of coin collecting. Accurate grading can only be accomplished by years of experience collecting coins. There are grading guides (books and web sites), although I am not familiar with those for Canadian coins. CoinQuest is a very simple forum, and we cannot possibly do justice to coin grading. For this reason we use only broad adjectives to describe coin value: worn (Good to Fine), average circulated (Very Fine), well preserved (Extra Fine), and fully uncirculated (Mint State). The words in parenthesis come from numismatic grading standards. The best way to sell coins is to let the buyer do the grading. Agreeing on grade is the same as agreeing on price. Hence, auctions such as eBay make it possible to sell coins at fair market levels. - CoinQuest (Paul)

I have a 1933 Canadian 5 cent piece that looks very nice to me but how do i know if worth more than 6$?
You have to become a coin collector and learn grading by experience. It usually takes a year or two. Otherwise, find someone who is an experienced coin collector and ask him or her. You can also take your coin to a coin dealer (look online for one near you) and ask for an appraisal. Also, there might be coin club in your area. You can use the pictures on our Terminology page to get an idea of 'average circulated' and 'fully uncirculated.' - CoinQuest (Paul)
