Calgary Coin offers a selection of Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island coins sale on the internet and in my store here in Calgary. I usually have many dates available, often in a variety of grades and prices for collectors at all levels. Most are priced at a discount from the Canadian Coin News trend sheet price guide.

I normally do not provide images my coins as I have thousands of coins, sometimes multiples of the same coin. Imaging even a tiny percent of them would be impossible and putting that many images on my web pages would make them difficult to download, plus for inexpensive coins the value to the time to create the images would far exceed the value of the coins. I grade conservatively, describing any significant defects, including minor ones many dealers would not mention. If you ever receive a coin from me you are not satisfied with, please feel free to return it for a full refund.

For those unfamiliar with the grade (quality) descriptions preceding each price, they are discussed on my Canadian Coin Introduction Page.


Prices are in Canadian Dollars

NEWFOUNDLAND

Newfoundland made the decision to introduce its own decimal coinage in 1863. A specimen pattern cent was struck in 1864 but the first coins actually issued were the 1, 5, 10 and 20 cent and $2.00 gold coins of 1865. The first 50 cent coins were issued in 1870. The denominations and weight standards were based on 100 cents equal to a Spanish 8 real. Until 1913 all Newfoundland coins were struck in England with those struck at the Royal mint in London being without a mint mark, and those struck at the Heaton mint in Birmingham marked with an H mint mark. From 1914 to 1916 no New founding coins were struck. Between 1917 and 1938 most were struck at the Royal Canadian Mint in Ottawa and marked with a small C and some were struck at the Royal mint in London without mint mark. From 1940 to 1947 all Newfoundland coins were struck at the Royal Canadian Mint in Ottawa although not all of them have the C mint mark.

This is a closed series of coins, meaning no more types or dates are being struck. Most NFLD coins have relatively low mintages yet are is fairly easy and relatively inexpensive in average circulated condition. Assembling a complete set of Newfoundland coins in average circulated condition is fairly easily done, with the 1880 $2.00 gold, 1873 5 cent and 1946 C 5 cent the three most difficult. Thing change if you want the coins in Mint condition as some of the Victorian coins, especially the scarcer 50 cents are nearly impossible to find in mint condition.

The last Newfoundland coins were 1, 5 and 10 cent coins struck in 1947, just over a year before Newfoundland entered Canadian Confederation as Canada's 10th Province in 1949. Most Newfoundland coins did not circulate much past 1949 so most minted after 1940 saw limited circulation so tend to be found in high quality today.

NEWFOUNDLAND CENTS

The Newfoundland Victorian large cents begin in 1865 for circulation, although patterns exist for 1864. They were struck in the years 1865, 1872, 1873, 1876, 1880, 1885, 1888, 1890, 1894 and 1896. All at 25.53 mm, 5.67 grams of 95% copper, 4% tin and 1% zinc. 1876 was struck to coinage axis while all other dates to medal axis. 1872 and 1876 were struck at Heaton mint with the H mint mark, while all other dates were struck at the Royal Mint in London England without a mint mark.

Some years have narrow and wide date varieties not listed in some standard references, but I will describe them when I notice them.

NFLD 1872 CENT

1872 is the only date of Newfoundland large cent struck with coinage axis. Years ago there was a hoard known as the Paramount Hoard that had a number of these in high grade with good red lustre, making them on the only dates readily available that way. I am looking for more information on this hoard.

NFLD CENT 1880

There are two major varieties in 1880 where the shape of the 0 can be oval (narrow) or wide (round). A secondary variety of the wide (round) O where the O where the O is distinctly lower than the other digits. So you get three type. 1) Oval (narrow) 0. 2) Wide O even date. 3) Wide, low 0. 1880 oval (narrow) 0 is the scarcest of all Newfoundland 1 cents.

GEORGE V SMALL CENTS

Newfoundland adopted the small cent in 1938 and were struck to the same standard as Canadian 1 cents until 1947 other than in 1939, 1945 or 1946, at 19.04 mm, 3.24 grams of 95.5% copper, 3% tin and 1.5% zinc, with a medal die axis. 1938 were struck the Royal Mint in London without a mint mark. 1940 to 1947 were struck at the Royal Canadian mint in Ottawa with all but 1940 and 1942 having the C for Canada to the lower right of the T in CENTS. It appears the omission of the mint mark was unintentional in 1940 and 1942.

NFLD 1940 CENT

Although there is no C mint mark, these were struck in Canada. Some 1940 NFLD one cents have distinct doubling of the date, most noticeable along the bottom of the digits but most the distinct doubling is on the 4 and are known as the re-engraved (or RE) date variety.

Some examples of the 1941 NFLD one cents have some doubling of the date, but not as distinctly as on the 1940's. The best place too look for this variety is along the bottom of the second 1 in the date. This type is known as the double date.

NEWFOUNDLAND TEN CENTS

Newfoundland struck 10 cent coins from 1865 until 1947, although not in all years. From 1865 to 1896 these are 17.98 mm and 2.36 grams, 1903 to 1912 they are 17.96 mm and 2.36 grams. 1917 is 18.03 mm and 2.36 grams. 1919 to 1947 are 18.03 mm and 2.33 grams. From 1865 to 1944 they are 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper (sterling silver) then this was reduced to 80% silver and 20% copper from 1945 to 1947. These were struck at three different mints, with those without a mint mark at Royal Mint in London England, those with an "H" mint mark at Ralph Heaton mint in England, and those with a "C" mint mark at the Royal Canadian mint in Ottawa (with one in 1940 which does not have mint mark but was struck at the Royal Canadian mint in Ottawa). From 1865 to 1904 the die axis is coins, then from 1912 to 1947 it is medal.

The great rarity in these series is the 1871 H which has a Newfoundland 10 cent obverse die but which was struck with a Canadian 10 cent die. This "mule error" mix up occurred at the Ralph Heaton mint and as no 1871 H regular Newfoundland 10 cents were struck, but it is the commonest date of Canadian 10 cent during that period, it is likely the mint thought they were striking Canadian 10 cents where the mix up occurred, but since they say Newfoundland on them, they are considered part of the Newfoundland series.

NEWFOUNDLAND TWENTY CENTS

The Newfoundland 20 cent coins were introduced in 1865 and struck until 1912, although there are many years which were not struck. The standard was 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper, 23.19 mm diameter, weighing 4.71 grams. The die axis was coinage from 1865 to 1900, then medal axis in 1904 and 1912. It should be noted that they are approximately 20% lower weight than a Canadian 25 cent of the same period, proportional to the 20% lower denomination. Those with the H mint mark were struck at the Heaton mint in Birmingham, and all others were struck at the Royal mint in London.

$2.00 GOLD

Newfoundland struck $2.00 gold coins in 1865, 1870, 1872, 1882, 1880, 1882, 1882, 1885 and 1888, to a standard of 17.98 mm and 3.33 grams of 91.7% gold and 8.3% copper (22 K gold), with coinage die axis. 1882 was struck at the Ralph Heaton mint indicated by the H mint mark. All other years were struck at the Royal mint in London. The only rare date is 1880, but all dates are rare in MS-63 or higher.


NFLD $2.00 GOLD

Newfoundland $2.00 gold coins in grades above MS-63 are both rare, and under rated in the CCN trend sheet. At the Heritage World Coin Auction NYINC Signature Sale 3061, 7 January 2018, Lot 30178 was an 1882 H in PCGS MS-64 which sold for $4600 plus buyers premium in US funds. In 2017 sale 3054, lot 30523 another example in PCGS MS-64 went for $5500 US. This shows strong demand on these coins in high grade, far above the CCN trend sheet estimates.

NEW BRUNSWICK

New Brunswick first issued coins in 1861 with a denomination set based on the Province of Canada issues of 1858-1859. The silver coins have the reverse designs as the Province of Canada coins other than the 20 cent with a design from a pattern originally rejected by the Province of Canada. The bronze 1/2 and 1 cents have the same designs as the Nova Scotia coins with just the name changed. The 1861 1/2 cent was minted in error due to confusion at the Royal mint as they were never ordered but were used when 200,000 of them arrived in New Brunswick.

New Brunswick token dating prior to 1861 exist in 1/2 and 1 penny denominations (not the same as 1/2 and 1 cent) and are consider pre-confederation tokens which we list on our Canadian tokens page when we have them available.

NOVA SCOTIA


Prior to 1861 most coins circulating in Nova Scotia were British, so when they decided to strike the first true Nova Scotia coins starting in 1861 they were made so the 1/2 cent was the size of a British farthing at 20.65 mm, 2.84 grams, and the 1 cents the size of British half pence at 25.53 mm, 5.67 grams. Both are 95% copper, 4% tin and 1% zinc. They have the same obverse as the British coins, but the reverse designs are a central crown above the date, surrounded by a wreath with "NOVA SCOTIA" below and the denomination above.

PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND


In 1871, two years before joining with the Canadian Confederation, Prince Edward Island issued 1 cent coins which are it's only independent coinage. The obverse portrait of Queen Victoria is the same as on Canadian coins of this period but with the legend "VICTORIA QUEEN 1871". The reverse shows an Island with a tall Oak Tree representing England, and three smaller trees representing PEI's three counties, with the Islands motto "PARVA SUB INGENTI" below, which is Latin for "The small under the protection of the great"

2,000,000 of these were struck at the Heaton mint in England but without the "H" mint mark one would expect. The coins were not well received and it was nearly 10 years before the government to put them all in circulation, although one should consider 2 million is a large mintage was relative to the Islands small population.

Some years ago a hoard of choice uncirculated examples were found at the Heaton Mint, which were extremely well struck lustrous coins which are occasionally incorrectly offered for sale as specimen strikes. These business strikes have a small area of bare ground just to the bottom right of the oak tree, which the much rarer specimen strikes do not.

They are struck to the same standard as the Canadian large cents of the period at 25.4 mm and 5.67 grams of 95% copper, 4% tin and 1% zinc. These are the same alloy and weight as the NS and NB 1 cents, but the flans are very slightly thinner and broader. These exist with both medal and coinage die axis, with the coinage (inverted) being the more common in spite of the listing in the Charlton catalogue listing the medal as the more common. On my listings below they are all coinage axis unless other wise noted.
