CANADA 2017 Legacy of the Penny Fine Silver Coin Set. UNIQUE SET INCLUDES TWO COIN SIZES: TWO 2-OUNCE COINS AND THREE 1-OUNCE COINS! The two coin sizes in this set reflect a historical change in the dimension of the penny. From the penny's first issue in 1908 to the year 1920, the diameter of the Canadian 1-cent piece was 25.4 millimeters. Beginning later in 1920, the penny's diameter was reduced to 19.05 millimetres.
Though both sizes in this set are significantly larger than the originals, the diameter of the set's two 2-ounce coins has been enlarged to reflect the pre-1920 large penny, while the three 1-ounce coins reflect the smaller penny that was produced after 1920.
