2005 First Day of Minting Obverse & ReverseThe Penny - A Brief History
The maple leaf gracing the one cent coin is emblematic of everything Canadian. The design featuring two maple leaveson a sprig was created by Canadian artist G.E. Kruger-Gray and first used in 1937. The maple tree has been a major contributor to the development of the forestry industry as well as a source of delicious syrup! In addition the maple leaf is the central feature of the national flag of Canada. The first one cent coin was struck by the Countess of Grey at the official opening of the Ottawa branch of the Royal Mint on January 2, 1908. Originally composed of copper, 2012's one cent circulation coin is made of copper-plated steel. The year 2012 marked the final year that the one cent coin was struck for circulation by Canada.
