Thanks for the new link! Very neat coin, out of my price range for sure. As for value if there is more then one you can probably look up previous auctions. I'm curious to see what it goes for as well

Well, typical cent planchet errors sell for C$200 for common ones (like 1979/1980) up to maybe C$800 for uncommon ones (odd dates, double struck on fully struck 10 cents).

This is an uncommon one for sure but by no means the only unique cent planchet error out there. C$1500 and counting seems already overpriced to me. I would have thought $1000 would have been the high end of the range.

That's AU-50 ? I would give it VF-30, maybe EF-40 tops.

That coin needs to be xrf'd, and measured.
1 cc of copper weighs 8.94g.
1 cc of tin weighs 7.27g. (approx. 80.5 % of copper weight)

ergo: If the 2 planchets are the same dimensions, and a copper one weighs 3.34g., then the tin one should weigh only 2.69g.

So you don"t think PCGS would not have XRF this coin to put tin on the label, this coin is unique on both date and composition, now it"s graded the marketplace will talk.

It is weird that the tin cent would weigh more then the regular copper cent. A copper cent weight would be 3.24g yet this is heavier. I can't argue with the pro graders but it's weird.

Edit: also does not look AU to me but being a unique piece grading would have to be subjective.

Without the XRF results, it's only a guess, but the OP's coin was probably an alloy and not straight tin .... maybe some lead or something further up the periodic table.

Very true okie, does anyone know if there is a list of foreign coinage struck at the mint in 67 that was the size of the Canadian cent coin?
