1942 Newfoundland 1-Cent Small Penny Coin Roll (Circulated)


Small Cents - George VI (1938 - 1947)

In 1937, the Newfoundland government reviewed converting to a small cent, similar to those used in Canada and the United States. The smaller coin was less expensive to produce and Newfoundlanders objected to the reverse design of the 1-cent large penny coin in which their provincial flower - the pitcher plant, was forced into an unnatural configuration. 



Coin depicts the design of King George VI with the Latin inscription:
GEORGIVS VI DEI GRA:REX ET IND:IMP meaning "George VI, by the grace of God, the King and Emperor of India."


Coin features a life-like rendition of the pitcher plant in bloom. This plant is native to Newfoundland, and is one of the insectivores of the plant kingdom. The large leaves are pitcher-like receptacles, the inner surfaces being covered with downward-sloping bristles. Insects are attracted onto their leaves by a sweet sticky syrup at the bottom and the bristles help prevent their escape. 


Roll includes 50 coins of 1942 Newfoundland 1 Cent (Small Penny) in circulated condition.
