Weight of canadian coins

Alright here's the thing.
Does anyone know the exact masses of any Canadian coins? I ask because Im in a situation here and I need to make a precise balance scale. I have no way to calibrating this thing and i though using coins would work pretty well.

Get a package of food that's marked with its weight on the outside.

so then 1 penny is 2.33333 grams by my one loonie = 7 grams calculation.

when you buy drugs it's not a bad idea to check the dealer's scale w/ a loonie
