Canadian Mint began melting the 1 cents coins and the remaining coins are considered collectible (In 2013, the Canadian Mint began melting down the estimated 35 billion pennies that were in circulation).

On March 29, 2012, the federal government announced in its budget that it would withdraw the penny from circulation in the fall of 2012. The budget announcement eliminating the penny cited the cost of producing it at 1.6 cents. The final penny was minted at the RCM's Winnipeg, Manitoba plant on the morning of May 4, 2012. Existing pennies will remain legal tender indefinitely; however, pennies were withdrawn from circulation on February 4, 2013. Only pennies produced in 1982 or later are still legally "Circulation Coins".
