1965 Canadian 1-Cent Maple Leaf Twig Penny Coin (Brilliant Uncirculated)

 

Small Cents - Elizabeth II, Tiara (1965 - 1989)

The maple leaf is a proud and distinctive Canadian symbol, appearing on all Canadian coins minted between Confederation and 1935. The modern 1-cent coin features two maple leaves on the same twig. The design, created by G.E. Kruger Gray, was first used in 1937 and has remained unchanged with one exception: in 1967, a rock dove designed by renowned Canadian artist Alex Colville appeared on the reverse to celebrate Canada's Centennial. Countess Grey struck the first 1-cent coin on January 2, 1908 at the official opening of the Ottawa branch of the Royal Mint (which became the Royal Canadian Mint in 1931).

 

Obverse

Coin depicts the portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in right profile, when she was 39 years old with the Latin inscription:
ELIZABETH II D•G•REGINA meaning "Elizabeth II, by the grace of God, the Queen"

 

Reverse

The 1-cent features two maple leaves on the same twig known as "Maple Twig". Relatively the exact design as that for George VI.
