The Story Behind our Penny Pendants

June 28, 2016

Our Penny Pendants are made from real Canadian pennies dated up to 1996, the last year they were made from copper. Starting in 1997 Canadian pennies were made with zinc, and from 2000 forward, steel. Though pennies from 1997 to the present are plated with copperto give them the copper penny look we’d come to expect, they aren’t suitable for enamelling.
