Canada Large Cent 1858 to 1920
These are grand old coins, Asher. They come from a time when one cent was WORTH something!
The 'heads' side of the coin changes portraits of the reigning British monarch. George V and Edward VII join Victoria on the Canadian large cent series. Here are approximate catalog values:
VICTORIA 1858 TO 1901
worn: $5 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $10
well preserved: $15
fully uncirculated: $40
Cents dated 1858 are quite rare; multiply these values by 10
Cents dated 1890, 1894, 1898, and 1900 are somewhat rare; multiply these values by 2
EDWARD VII 1902 TO 1910
worn: $2 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $4
well preserved: $7
fully uncirculated: $30
Cents dated 1907H (must have H mint mark) are more rare; multiply these values by 5
GEORGE V 1911 TO 1920
worn: $1 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $3
well preserved: $5
fully uncirculated: $20
See our Important Terminology page for an explanation of what 'catalog value' means.
Most coin dealers pay about one-half the prices above (or less) for Canadian large cents. A 100% dealer markup is common for these coins.
