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 quickly come into its own. This Legacy of the Canadian Nickel series is a retrospective look at the history of 5-cent coins minted by the Royal Canadian Mint; it continues with the two maple leaves design used from 1922 to 1936 that first earned the 5-cent coin its “nickel” nickname.

The reverse image features a recreation of William James Henry Blakemore’s 1922 redesign of Canada’s 5-cent coin. Finely detailed engraving, multiple finishes and selective gold plating breathe new life and more definition to the original design, which features two maple leaves facing outward from the centre. They frame the bottom of a stylistically rendered “5” which paired with the words “FIVE” “CINQ” and “CENTS” indicate the face value. Also engraved on the reverse are the word “CANADA” and the year “2015”. The obverse features the effigy of King George V, who was the reigning monarch from 1910 to 1936 by Sir E.B. MacKennal.

A great gift for collectors of Canadiana, history-themed and circulation coins with this new 6-coin series!
