Canadian coins price guide and values

The British colonies, led by the Province of Canada, needed to replace the sterling system with the decimal system used in the United States. In 1858, with London's approval, Province of Canada issued coins minted in England in denominations of 1, 5, 10 and 20 cents. With the creation of the Dominion of Canada in 1867, Ottawa issued a new series of coins that were legal tender in the four provinces that signed the 1867 Confederation pact.
