1951 Canadian 5-Cent Beaver Chrome/Nickel Coin Roll (Circulated)

 

Large 5 Cents - George VI - Steel Coinage (1951 - 1952)

The obverse of all 12-sided issues have a bare-headed portrait of the King. The Korean War placed strong demand on nickel, forcing suspension of production of the commemorative 5-cent nickel before the end of 1951. In its place, steel coins of the beaver design were struck. It was found during trials that the current design was not as easy to strike in steel as in nickel, so a new lower relief version was created. However, some of the higher (initial design) relief versions had been produced by mistake.   

 

Obverse

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".

 

Reverse

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.
