George VI (1937-1952)

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s father will adorn Canadian coins until her coronation in 1952. According to the value of the coin and this until 1947, its effigy will be surrounded by the Latin inscription GEORGIVS VI D:G:REX ET IND:IMP or GEORGIVS VI DEI GRA REX ET IND:IMP.
