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.

Coat of Arms of Canada

This version assiduously reproduces the coat of arms described in the Royal Proclamation of 1763. The four founding nations on Canada’s shield are represented by the three leopards of England, the lion of Scotland, the fleur-de-lis of France and the royal Irish harp of Tara. The lion of England unfurls the banner of the United Kingdom and the unicorn of Scotland unfurls the flag of the French kingdom. The floral emblems commemorate royal symbols such as the English rose, Scottish thistle, French lily and Irish shamrock. The Royal Crown triumphs over the Coat of Arms described above and identifies them as that of the Sovereign of Canada.

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.
