This collection includes two original mints rolls (100 coins total) of Canada's scarce last one cent coins, one roll in copper plated zinc (non-magnetic), plus one roll in struck in copper plated steel (magnetic). The rolls include a special collector last issue wrap.  

After a 154 year history, Canada's one cent coin was officially discontinued on May 4, 2012. To make this issue even more interesting, two distinctly different types of coins were produced during the short production run. The first coins were produced using magnetic copper plated multiply steel blanks, while coins produced after this first run were struck using non-magnetic copper plated zinc blanks. While both varieties appear to be scarce, the copper plated steel coins appear to be the most difficult to obtain. In 2013, the Royal Canadian Mint began melting down all remaining cent coins, and it is believed that most of the 2012 mintage remained unissued and was melted down.

The Royal Canadian Mint sold to collectors 20,000 rolls of the last copper plated zinc 2012 cent coins, issued at $9.95 per roll, and these sold out immediately and currently sell in the secondary market for about $20 per roll. This set includes an original mint roll of the copper plated zinc coins which sold out from the Mint's collector issue, plus the scarcer magnetic copper plated steel coin roll which were never made available to collectors.
