1939 Canadian 25-Cent Caribou Silver Quarter Coin (Circulated)


80% Silver 25 Cent Coins - George VI (1937 - 1952)

In early 1948, the Royal Canadian Mint was faced with an issue resulting from India's recent independence. The new obverse coinage tools, with the Latin phrase "ET IND: IMP" omitted to indicate that the King's titles had changed, would not arrive for several months, yet there was a great need for all denominations of coin. The Mint satisfied the demand by striking coins dated 1947 bearing a tiny maple leaf placed after the date to distinguish these unique 1948 issues.



Coin depicts the design of King George VI with the Latin inscription:
GEORGIVS VI DEI GRATIA REX meaning "George VI, by the grace of God, the King."


Depicts Emanuel Hahn's design of the caribou head with 'H' in front of caribou's neck at bottom. This design was part of the government's program of modernizing Canadian coinage.
