Product Description

Hard-to-find set includes a handsome nickel from Canada, one of only 5000 struck on the first day of minting!

Sold out at the Mint!From the days of the first voyageurs the beaver has played an important role in Canadian history. The beaver design on the five cent coin was created by Canadian artist G.E. Kruger-Gray and first used in 1937. Widely recognized as an emblem of Canada, the beaver has adorned the shield of the Hudson's Bay Company, the armorial bearings of Quebec City and the city of Montreal, Canada's first postage stamp and countless commercial products. Made of cupro-nickel from 1982, its composition was changed to nickel-plated steel in 2000.
