Trivia Question:



Where was the oldest coin (that was in use) found in Canada uncovered? How old is it? (the coin came from England)

The first/oldest "recognized" coin from from Canada was 1858. To be recognized as a coin, it must have the word CANADA printed on it. However, their are some canadian half pennies dates as far back as 1812. These date back to the Canadian Settlers, Canadian Fur Traders, and coureur de bois.
