Hard-to-get Item: That’s One Big Penny!

2012 1 cent 5 oz. silver coinIt’s not every day that the Royal Canadian Mint makes a 5 oz. penny out of fine silver, but it did in 2012, the last year of the production of the circulation penny in Canada.  The “Farewell to the Penny” series included specially-wrapped rolls of 50 pennies (issued at $9.95, they retailed regularly for $100 only weeks after their issue date), a half-ounce silver coin with gold-plating, a 5-coin silver penny set with historical designs, and a “$20 for $20” coin that quickly sold out.  The 5 oz. coin, despite its relatively high price, was immediately popular.  J&M has acquired one coin recently; the price is $549.95.  To order, please call 1-888-244-9999 or go to our website.
