1946 Newfoundland 5 cents - replica coin Price of real VF $960 USD, XF - $ 1300.
George VI 1938-1947

There was much debate as to whether the government of Newfoundland would keep producing a silver five cent coin or adopt a nickel five cent coin. Due to a strong conservative element, the decision was made to change only the cent. The reverse design was continued while the obverse had the effigy that was the standard portrait for the British colonial coinages.

The 1946 coin had the lowest mintage of any five cent coin. Published official mint reports, as well as unpublished mint accounting records, do not indicate any mintage of the five cent coin during 1946. The speculation is that the 1946 coin was actually minted in 1947. Therefore, the figures for 1946 and 1947 are considered unofficial.

Just over 2,000 Newfoundland 5 cents were struck for 1946, making these one of the rarest of Newfoundland coins. Please click here to ask a question
