Hi. I found a 1969 Canadian 1 Cent Penny along with a 1917 S US Penny in my jewelry box today. I'm still trying to learn US and then found this!

In looking this coin up, it's not giving me much information to reference. It's asking if it's small beads or large? It seems to be both. It gives the weight and dimensions, then refers to USD with a percentage?

I do notice that it has a red tone mixed with the brown, but can't find anything else on it. I tried a few different sites, but same info? Can someone please help me out with this one? Is it a special year, is there something else I'm missing?

That is a common 1969 cent. There is no large or small bead for that year,
they are all the same. As there were over 335 million struck that year,
it's value would be in the copper content. Still a keeper if you don't have
any other Canadian currency.

Agree, a common '68 Canada cent. Toning is typically caused by the coin's metal surface being exposed to an environmental agent--copper reacts in interesting ways.

It's a 1969 cent. I just found something on it in another forum. It does mention that the obverse of the coin should have round beads and the reverse should have denticals. My coin, on the obverse, has beads, then around the "D. G. and R", it changes to denticals. Someone from Canada, said possible error, referring to another coin that was posted like mine.

Then the conversation stopped! So, back to square, or should I say, bead 1!

Copper can take on a remarkable range of colors.

It is a common 69 what you are seeing is where a coin rolling machine has caught the rim at the beads and flatten them out to make it look like a denticle. A keeper till you find one better.
Secret Santa please look here to see what I do have.

When talking about percentage for red and brown, it is referring to original red lustre, and is used for uncirculated or almost uncirculated coins. Your coin would be considered 100% brown (no original lustre), and is in VF condition.

The bead issue looks to me like Die Deterioration.
By the photo it looks like the second 9 in the date may have been repunched - bottom point- may just be the light reflecting.
