The 1871 One Cent of Prince Edward Island has some interesting facts associated with it:
- The first issue of decimal coinage
- The only coin issued by Prince Edward Island
- The only Canadian coin issued with the royal title in English
- The only coin struck at the Heaton Mint without the “H” mint mark
Value: $1-$200 depending on condition.
