Royal Canadian Mint Offers Special Penny Rolls To Commemorate End Of Distribution

OTTAWA, Feb. 4, 2013 /CNW/ - Marking a milestone moment in Canada's coinage history, the Royal Canadian Mint is offering 20,000 special rolls made from the last million pennies produced for distribution.

"The Mint is marking the last distribution date of the penny by releasing this unique collectible," said Ian E. Bennett, President and CEO of the Royal Canadian Mint.  " Canada's history, culture and values are often celebrated through coins and George Kruger-Gray's iconic penny design stood the test of time for over 75 years and the Mint joins Canadians in bidding it a fond farewell."

The last million pennies ever to be distributed by the Mint are offered in special commemorative wrap rolls of 50 pennies, which feature Kruger-Gray's maple leaf design, which was used as the Canadian one-cent reverse image from 1937 to 2012 with the sole exception of 1967.  The obverse features the effigy of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Suzanna Blunt. Each roll is authenticated with a serialized holographic label.

Limited to one roll per customer and retailing for $9.95, these special rolls are available today directly from the Mint at 1-800-267-1871 in Canada, 1-800-268-6468 in the US, or online at They are also available at the Mint's boutiques in Ottawa, Winnipeg and Vancouver, as well as through our global network of dealers and distributors.
