Canada 1 Cent 1937 to Date
Canadian small cents with the maple leaf reverse started in 1937. At that time, King George was on the 'heads' side. Now it's Queen Elizabeth.
These coins are worth face value. A collector may spend a US dollar to add a fully uncirculated specimen to his or her collection. The coin in our picture is what collectors call 'full red uncirculated' and it may bring $2.
Some of the older King George coins are worth more to collectors, who want to add nice circulated examples to their collections. For a well preserved but circulated King George coin, figure $1 catalog value.
