Elizabeth II (1965‑1989)
The second version of the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is surrounded by the Latin inscription ELIZABETH II D G REGINA, a shortened form of that used until 1964.
In 1937, the caribou design by Emanuel Hahn replaced the maple leaves on the quarter to follow the trend of modernizing coins. At that time, the London Mint having a very high workload, the original manufacturing tools were made at the Paris Mint.
Brilliant Numismatic coin
This coin is part of an uncirculated set featuring the classic coins of the Royal Canadian Mint. The well-defined numismatic gloss reflects the exceptional quality of minting and the care taken to achieve a near-perfect surface.
