This large one ounce .9999 fine silver five cent coin is part of a series that marks the transformations of Canada’s five cent coin.  Selective gold plating is used on both sides of the coin to enhance the design and collectability of the coin. Mintage is 8,500. GST/HST exempt.

The Design:

The reverse features the design used for the 1951 commemorative nickel.  As the world’s largest producer of nickel, Canada sought to mark and recognize the 200th anniversary of the isolation and naming of the element nickel in 1751. The 12 sided design features the Inco Nickel Refinery in Sudbury, with the tall smokestack as the central design element. Three maple leaves appear below the refinery. The obverse design features the historic effigy of King George VI, which appeared on Canada’s five cent coins from 1937 to 1952.  

This coin’s 40-mm diameter makes it about double the diameter of the original, allowing for a larger canvas to showcase the intricately detailed design.
