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.

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.

Uncirculated

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