2022 5oz 1C Canada Last Penny 10th Anniversary | First Day of Issue | Susanna Blunt Autographed
It was 11 years ago, in 2012, that the last Canadian penny was struck at the Winnipeg facility. Now, a decade later, the cent’s maple leaf twig design has been brought out of retirement for a limited appearance on this 99.99% pure silver tribute. Struck in a tailored specimen finish, the maple leaves feature a soft satin finish, while the field is filled with angled lines that meet at the center. Those lines are a nod to the pyramid-shaped Winnipeg facility where this “W” mint mark coin was struck, and where all the pennies were minted between 1976 and 2012.
A Tribute To The Canadian Penny
This 1 oz. silver coin pays tribute to Canada’s copper-colored cent on the 10ᵗʰ anniversary of the last penny struck at our Winnipeg facility.

Why Are Autographed Coins More Expensive?
A majority of the coins Global Coin sells are autographed by someone important within the coin world. This significantly raises the price of the item compared to the same coin unsigned because of the figure's prominence. Consider this in the world of baseball: A baseball can be purchased anywhere for around $5, but a Babe Ruth autographed baseball was auctioned for $388,375, significantly increasing the value of that baseball.
