In Canada, a penny is a coin worth one cent, or 1⁄100 of a dollar. According to the Royal Canadian Mint, the official national term of the coin is the "one-cent piece", but in practice the terms penny and cent predominate. Originally, "penny" referred to a two-cent coin. When the two-cent coin was discontinued, penny took over as the new one-cent coin's name. Penny was likely readily adopted because the previous coinage in Canada (up to 1858) was the British monetary system, where Canada used British pounds, shillings, and pence as coinage alongside U.S. decimal coins and Spanish milled dollars.

Production of the penny ceased in May 2012, and the Royal Canadian Mint ceased the distribution of them as of February 4, 2013. However, like all discontinued currency in the Canadian monetary system, the coin remains legal tender. Once distribution of the coin ceased, though, vendors no longer were expected to return pennies as change for cash purchases, and were encouraged to round purchases to the nearest nickel. Non-cash transactions are still denominated to the cent.

Page 62 paragraph 1 reads:

"In 2006, for some reason, multi-ply plated steel planchettes (magnetic) found their way into the production line for striking 2006 copper plated zinc cents (non-magnetic). The obverse dies used in this line did not carry the "P" composition mark. Thus, the multi-ply plated steel planchettes were struck without the "P" composition mark. This variety is listed as 2006 (P), signifying multi-ply plated but no composition mark."
