1968 Canadian 25-Cent Caribou Silver Quarter Original Coin Roll  


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.


Silver Composition 

During the 1968 coining it was necessary to discontinue the use of silver and substitute nickel for it. Nickel coins are darker in colour and are attracted to a magnet.
Actual silver weight (ASW): 0.0937 troy ounces (troy oz)



Coin depicts the Tiara portrait design of Queen Elizabeth II with the Latin inscription:

Designed by Emanuel Hahn, the coin features a left facing image of a Caribou head. The denomination sits between the antlers. Text to the left reads "CANADA", while the text to the right features the date.
