In order to look up a particular coin, click on the specific coin denomination for a particular period. For example, choosing a 5-cent coin from the period 1922 to 1936 takes users to another page that lists a variety of coins and their values. However, there are grades linked to each of the coins. The site provides the meaning of these different grades, such as VG-8, EF-40 and AU-50. These grades specify the wear condition of coins; for example, AU-50 means the image illustration shows a bit of wear at the top portion of the coin but the legends are still quite sharp.

The Numismatic Guaranty Corporation site has a world coin price guide. Search for Canadian coins by choosing criteria, such as country, region, coin date and denomination. It is also possible to search by the specific coin. The site contains coin values from the 1600s to the present time.
