Newfoundland 1941-C cent
This specimen is a common date of a type struck in Ottawa, Canada, for the colony of Newfoundland 1938-47. Canada switched to small cents in 1920 but Newfoundland did not follow suit until 1938. Newfoundland was admitted into the Dominion of Canada in 1949 and her separate coinage ceased. As a class, Newfoundland coinage is scarcer than equivalent Canadian coinage but collector demand for it is lower so it is often cheaper.
