Elizabeth II (1990-2002) – Old Effigy

The third version of the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was unveiled in 1990 at the age of 64. This is the first effigy designed by a Canadian artist, Dora de Pédery-Hunt. It is surrounded by the Latin inscription ELIZABETH II D G REGINA.

Caribou

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 Uncirculated

This is the basic finish found on most standard circulation coins in Canada.
