It likely has been plated, but it's possible it may be a wrong planchet error meaning a dime planchet some how got mixed in with the 1 cent planchets. I suggest having a dealer or collector assess the coin.

How much is a 1920 Canadian large cent stamped on a small cent planchet worth?

You will need to clarify some points in order to get an answer to your question. In 1920 there were two designs of cents made, small cent, and large cent. Both of them are around the one dollar mark unless they are a very high grade. Now, if indeed you have a Large cent design, struck on a small cent planchet, then I would suggest you join a site where you can post a photo and let some experts look at your coin. I have never seen a large cent struck on a different planchet before, so I have an inkling it could be very valuable if it is indeed legitimate. I will suggest you stop by a website (such as the one listed further down this page, under Related Links) where pictures can be posted. There are several members there quite educated in this series and perhaps they will be able to give you a better idea on the value after you post a picture.

What date? Denver has struck cents for over a century. Or do you have a cent planchet with just a big "D" on it? These little medals were placed in US mint sets to fill the sixth space in the package for several years when only 5 denominations were minted and have no numismatic value.
