Canada Prince Edward Island Cent  1871
Canada Prince Edward Island Cent 1871

I have not been there, but they tell me Prince Edward Island is a beautiful place. It is one of Canada's Maritime Provinces, above the State of Maine in the US. Many of these provinces issued their own coinage for a short time. 1871 was the only year PEI issued this cent.

Requester description: 1871 This one-cent coin is stamped 'Prince Edward Island' along the top and 'Once Cent' at the bottom. It has an image of a tree just off-center, and very small script which seems to say, 'Parva **********' or 'Famva **********.' The face side of the coin has the likeness of Queen Victoria; she has a bun and no crown. The words 'Victoria Queen' run along the top and '1871' stamped at the bottom.
