Penny’s Tips Volume 42- The Canadian Penny Edition

Hi everyone! I am going to tell you about some valuable Canadian Pennies today, but first I have a surprise for you. Mom asked her graphic designer friend to make me a badge and I want to share it with all my fans. Please feel free to display it on your sidebar. And if you need a graphic designer, we highly recommend him, click here.

Now on to those Canadian pennies. I know they are not in circulation anymore, but you may still have some around. Β  Did you know there is one worth $400,000? It is a 1936 “dot” penny. When King Edward VIII abdicated the throne and King George VI ascended there was no time to change the face on the coin so a tiny raised dot was placed under the coin date to denote those were struck in 1937, not 1936. If you find one, don’t forget who told you about it πŸ™‚

I will fill you in on more valuable Canadian pennies in future editions.

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.



  1. That’s so interesting! I’ve always had such a fascination with King Edward VIII and have quite a few books and commemorative items on him and Wallis Simpson.

  2. Haven’t seen Canadian pennies in years….maybe that’s why?!?!?!

    Hugs, Pam (and Teddy too of course)

  3. How interesting about the Canadian pennies. When I worked retail we were always getting different kinds of coins. I don’t remember any Canadian pennies. Nice to see you Penny with your Tips this morning!

  4. Mom loves collecting world coins as much as she does our our coins here in the US, Penny! Good to know,

  5. Thanks for the graphic–we’ll add it to our page. We had forgotten that Canada no longer circulates pennies. Maybe we should keep a few just for fun, even if they aren’t valuable.

  6. That’s a great badge, Penny! Very interesting info about Canadian penny! I think I have a few Canadian coins — gotta check them out πŸ™‚

    Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday, Ellen. β™₯

  9. Ha! For most of my life, Canadian coins were mixed in with our change, ’cause we are only across a little river and a little lake, and no one worried about it. I’ll check through our coin jars to find any Canadian pennies!

  10. I live in Canada. I may still have a few pennies in the house. I’d better have a look.

  11. Used to get Canadian pennies and quarters in change around here, so you had to keep your eyes open, cause the stores wouldn’t take them–but they would give them out!!!

  12. Penny, I love that you had a badge created for your namesake tips! I always look forward to these fun tips, and they always prompt me to go through my strangely large coin collection. Purrs!

  13. I didn’t know they weren’t in circulation anymore. I have a few Canadian Pennies. Any other Canadian money not in Circulation anymore?

  14. I’m going to have to check pennies around here! And I won’t forget who gave me this tip if I find this rare one πŸ™‚

  15. Gosh, Penny, every time you tell us of riches from pennies, our mom gets all excited (and sadly, for no reason, even though she has a slew of old coins). *We* think we get rich from YOU!

  16. There are a couple of Canadian pennies in the foreign coin bag at the house, and after i get home from vacation i will get it out and look for them.

  17. Charlee: “That sounds like a penny Dennis would have loved to find for one of his get-rich-quick schemes.”
    Chaplin: “Too bad he never did!”
    Lulu: “What’s a get-rich-quick scheme?”
    Charlee: “Basically getting rich right away without doing any actual work.”
    Lulu: “Oh, okay. We can do that if you want to. I don’t mind!”
