1966 Canadian 25-Cent Caribou Silver Quarter Coin (Brilliant Uncirculated) 

 

25 Cents - Elizabeth II with Tiara / Caribou

A new obverse with Queen Elizabeth II's portrait showing more mature facial features and wearing a tiara was introduced on all denominations in 1965. The caribou on a 25-cent piece dates back to 1936 when a change in the sovereign's image on circulation currency prompted the Canadian government to modify the designs on the reverse side of coins as well. The caribou design was created by Canadian artist Emanuel Hahn and was first used in 1937.
