1947 MAPLE LEAF Canadian 5-Cent Beaver Nickel Coin Roll (Circulated)


1947 Maple Leaf Issues 

The granting of independence to India resulted in a dilemma for the Royal Canadian Mint in the early part of 1948. Due to a pressing need for all denominations of coins, the Mint satisfied the demand by striking coins dated 1947 followed by a tiny maple leaf denoting that they were actually struck in 1948.


Large 5 Cents - George VI - 12-Sided (1946 - 1952)

The obverse of all 12-sided issues have a bare-headed portrait of the King. After the conclusion of World War II the 5-cent piece was again struck in nickel, but the 12-sided shape had become popular and was retained.  



Coin depicts the design of King George VI with the Latin inscription:
GEORGIVS VI D:G:REX ET IND:IMP meaning "George V, by the grace of God, the King and Emperor of India."


Features a beaver on a rock-studded mound of earth rising out of the water. At the left is a log which the beaver has been chewing.



Roll includes 40 coins of 1947 MAPLE LEAF Canadian 5-Cent Beaver  in circulated condition.
