NEWFOUNDLAND

Newfoundland made the decision to introduce its own decimal coinage in 1863. A specimen pattern cent was struck in 1864 but the first coins actually issued were the 1, 5, 10 and 20 cent and $2.00 gold coins of 1865. The first 50 cent coins were issued in 1870. The denominations and weight standards were based on 100 cents equal to a Spanish 8 real. Until 1913 all Newfoundland coins were struck in England with those struck at the Royal mint in London being without a mint mark, and those struck at the Heaton mint in Birmingham marked with an H mint mark. From 1914 to 1916 no Newfounding coins were struck. Between 1917 and 1938 most were struck at the Royal Canadian Mint in Ottawa and marked with a small C and some were struck at the Royal mint in London without mint mark. From 1940 to 1947 all Newfoundland coins were struck at the Royal Canadian Mint in Ottawa although not all of them have the C mint mark.

This is a closed series of coins, meaning no more types or dates are being struck. Most NFLD coins have relatively low mintages yet are is fairly easy and relatively inexpensive in average circulated condition. Assembling a complete set of Newfoundland coins in average circulated condition is fairly easily done, with the 1880 $2.00 gold, 1873 5 cent and 1946 C 5 cent the three most difficult. Thing change if you want the coins in Mint condition as some of the Victorian coins, especially the scarcer 50 cents are nearly impossible to find in mint condition.

The last Newfoundland coins were 1, 5 and 10 cent coins struck in 1947, just over a year before Newfoundland entered Canadian Confederation as Canada's 10th Province in 1949. Most Newfoundland coins did not circulate much past 1949 so most minted after 1940 saw limited circulation so tend to be found in high quality today.

NEWFOUNDLAND CENTS

The Victorian large cents from Newfoundland begin in 1865, although pattern coins exist for 1864. They were not struck every year, and the years in which were were struck are 1865, 1872, 1873, 1876, 1880, 1885, 1888, 1890, 1894 and 1896. All are 25.53 mm, 5.67 grams of 95% copper, 4% tin and 1% zinc. 1876 was struck to coinage axis while all other dates were medal axis. 1872 and 1876 were struck at the Heaton mint and have the H mint mark, while all other dates were struck at the Royal Mint in London England without a mint mark.

In some years there are narrow and wide date varieties which are not mentioned in some of the standard references, but we will describe them when we have them.

There are two major varieties in 1880 where the shape of the 0 can be oval (narrow) or wide (round).

NEWFOUNDLAND TEN CENTS

Newfoundland struck 10 cent coins from 1865 through to the end of the series in 1947, although many dates were not struck. From 1865 to 1896 these 17.98 mm and 2.36 grams, 1903 to 1912 they were 17.96 mm but still 2.36 grams. 1917 is 18.03 mm and 2.36 grams. 1919 to 1947 are 18.03 mm and 2.33 grams. From 1865 to 1944 they are 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper (sterling silver) and then the alloy is reduced to 80% silver and 20% copper from 1945 to 1947. These were struck at three different mints, with those without a mint mark being struck at Royal Mint in London England, and "H" mint mark at Ralph Heaton mint in England, and those with a "C" mint mark at the Royal Canadian mint in Ottawa, with the one exception being 1940 which does not have mint mark but which was struck at the Royal Canadian mint in Ottawa.

The great rarity in these series is the 1871 H which has a Newfoundland 10 cent obverse die but which was struck with a Canadian 10 cent die. This "mule error" mix up occurred at the Ralph Heaton mint and as no 1871 H regular Newfoundland 10 cents were struck, but it is the commonest date of Canadian 10 cent during that period, it is likely the mint thought they were striking Canadian 10 cents where the mix up occurred, but since they say Newfoundland on them, they are considered part of the Newfoundland series.

NEWFOUNDLAND TWENTY CENTS

The Newfoundland 20 cent coins were introduced in 1865 and struck until 1912, although there are many years in which none were made. The were struck to a standard of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper, with a diameter of 23.19 mm, and a weight of 4.71 grams, with a coinage die axis. It should be noted that they are approximately 20 lower weight than a Canadian 25 cent coin of the same period, which is fitting since the denomination is also 20% lower. Those with the H mint mark were struck at the Heaton mint in Birmingham, and all others were struck at the Royal mint in London.

NEW BRUNSWICK

New Brunswick first issued coins in 1861 with a denomination set based on the Province of Canada issues of 1858-1859. The silver coins have the reverse designs as the Province of Canada coins other than the 20 cent with a design from a pattern originally rejected by the Province of Canada. The bronze 1/2 and 1 cents have the same designs as the Nova Scotia coins with just the name changed. The 1861 1/2 cent was minted in error due to confusion at the Royal mint as they were never ordered but were used when 200,000 of them arrived in New Brunswick.

New Brunswick token dating prior to 1861 exist in 1/2 and 1 penny denominations (not the same as 1/2 and 1 cent) and are consider pre-confederation tokens which we list on our Canadian tokens page when we have them available.

NOVA SCOTIA


Prior to 1861 most coins circulating in Nova Scotia were British, so when they decided to strike the first true Nova Scotia coins starting in 1861 they were made so the 1/2 cent was the size of a British farthing at 20.65 mm, 2.84 grams, and the 1 cents the size of British half pence at 25.53 mm, 5.67 grams. Both are 95% copper, 4% tin and 1% zinc. They have the same obverse as the British coins, but the reverse designs are a central crown above the date, surrounded by a wreath with "NOVA SCOTIA" below and the denomination above.

PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND


In 1871, two years before joining with the Canadian Confederation, Prince Edward Island issued 1 cent coins which are it's only independent coinage. The obverse portrait of Queen Victoria is the same as on Canadian coins of this period but with the legend "VICTORIA QUEEN 1871". The reverse shows an Island with a tall Oak Tree representing England, and three smaller trees representing PEI's three counties, with the Islands motto "PARVA SUB INGENTI" below, which is Latin for "The small under the protection of the great"

2,000,000 of these were struck at the Heaton mint in England but without the "H" mint mark one would expect. The coins were not well received and it was nearly 10 years before the government to put them all in circulation, although one should consider 2 million is a large mintage was relative to the Islands small population.

Some years ago a hoard of choice uncirculated examples were found at the Heaton Mint, which were extremely well struck lustrous coins which are occasionally incorrectly offered for sale as specimen strikes. These business strikes have a small area of bare ground just to the bottom right of the oak tree, which the much rarer specimen strikes do not.

They are struck to the same standard as the Canadian large cents of the period at 25.4 mm and 5.67 grams of 95% copper, 4% tin and 1% zinc. These are the same alloy and weight as the NS and NB 1 cents, but the flans are very slightly thinner and broader. These exist with both medal and coinage die axis, with the coinage (inverted) being the more common in spite of the listing in the Charlton catalogue listing the medal as the more common. On my listings below they are all coinage axis unless other wise noted.
