Canadian Penny Earrings 1960 ~ 1968
The Canadian penny is an extinct species. The very last Canadian penny was minted in Winnipeg May 4, 2012. The first Canadian pennies were minted at the Royal Mint in Great Britain, and featured Queen Victoria's profile on the "heads" side, and maple leaves and vines on the "tails' side. So while these may not be. the oldest pennies in the my line, they certainly are some of the most collectible.
Of course this pair features Queen Elizabeth's portrait, still has the beautiful maple leaf design, and has the most lovely patina.
