Queen Elizabeth II Memorial Obverse
As new King Charles III dies were not yet ready for this coin, the obverse features a posthumous effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II with the addition of the double dates of her reign, 1952-2022. The four dots or pearls between the dates are intended to represent the four different effigies of the Queen that have appeared on Canadian coinage.
