5 cents 1858 to 1901 - Price guide and values

The first colony (province) to succeed adoption of decimal currency was Canada in 1857. In the following two years, 1, 5, 10 and 20 cents pieces were coined by the Royal Mint in London and were the first of official decimal coins struck for a part of what is now Canada. The early 5 cents Canadian coins were small and in silver.

SP (Specimen): Special collectors coins struck at the Mint with a frosted/mirror appearance on the design and effigy from 1996 to 2022. Before 1996, if specimen coins have been removed from their protective envelope or original package, it is harder to differentiate them from PL coins. Specimen coins are struck up to two times on numismatic presses.
