The 1910 Canadian cent is the last issue of King Edward VII of England and is common in low grade with a value less than US 50 cents. The 1911 issue features King George V and has the distinction of missing the “Dei Gratia” (by the Grace of G-d) part of the usual legend. This issue is referred to as the “Godless” coin. The term was re-established on the cents of the following year.
The 1911 cent is popular and brings U.S.$1-$2 in low grade.
