Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
Throughout its history, each of the nickel’s transformations provides a glimpse of a young nation that was seeking to define itself, and a Mint that would come into its own. This Legacy of the Canadian Nickel series is a retrospective look at the history of five-cent coins issued by the Royal Canadian Mint; it concludes with the 1967 five-cent coin design, which commemorated the centennial anniversary of Confederation.

This 5-cent coin is c 99.99% pure silver, with a diameter of 40 millimetres and a metal weight of 31.83 grams. The reverse features the unique commemorative design by famed Canadian painter Alex Colville that adorned the five-cent circulation coin in 1967. Using multiple finishes and selective gold plating to further enhance the design, this recreation of the hopping rabbit is rendered in fine detail and on a larger scale, allowing a closer look at the original design featured on the centennial nickel. Engraved on the reverse is the face value “5 CENTS”, the word “CANADA” and the updated year “2015”. The obverse features the second effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Arnold Machin.

A great gift for collectors of Canadiana-, history-themed and circulation coins!
