Elizabeth II (2003 to present)

Canadian artist Susanna Blunt creates the most recent effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, surrounded by the inscription ELIZABETH II D G REGINA. A reminder to the effigy of Her Majesty’s father (1937-1952) that of George VI, who also chose to be represented without a crown.

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 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.
