The Ottawa branch of The Royal Mint (later RCM) was opened in 1908, during the rein of King Edward VII. Prior to that Canadian coin was minted in the UK. But 1837 was years in advance of the confederation of Canada, which occurred 150 years ago in 1867.

If you're able to find a copy of Dr Haxby's Striking Impressions, it contains a fascinating history of coinage in Canada.

Legal tender struck within Canada, not prior to The Royal Mint in 1908.
Tokens are a different matter as there's no restriction on creating little metal disks.
If there was made a 1837 token in "Upper Canada?" with the effigy of Queen Victoria, perhaps one of our token experts will chime in.

New Brunswick Penny



These are the earliest I can find and there's the 1858 and 1859 Large Cents and One cent from Newfoundland, Prince Edward Island. Also Half Cents from New Bruswick and Newfoundland as well as One cents.

There were no coins or tokens struck in Canada with Queen Victoria's portrait. The tokens shown in previous threads from Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, and PEI were all struck in England. The Haxby reference is a great start as is the Charlton Catalogue of Canadian Colonial Tokens.

Would " DEI GRATIA REGINA " also indicate minted
at Heaton ?

No, that means Queen by the grace of God, and still appears on our coins.
