Celebrate the history and artistry of Canadian circulation coinage with this fine silver 5-cent pieceÑpart of the Royal Canadian MintÕs new series featuring CanadaÕs six circulation coins. Each beautiful coin is composed of five ounces of fine silver and features selective colour on the reverse.

The reverse features British artist G. E. Kruger-GrayÕs iconic design featuring the left profile of a beaver standing on a rock surrounded by water. The beaver and the water are coloured in natural shades of brown and blue. The reverse is also engraved with the text ÒCANADAÓ, the face value of Ò5 CENTSÓ and the date Ò2016Ó. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Drawing its inspiration from minting itself, this coin makes an exquisite gift, an inspiring introduction to collecting, or an important addition for any collector interested in Canadian subjects, Canadian and international circulation coinage, or minting history.
