The beaver has a long history in Canada as both commodity and cultural icon. The Hurons honoured the beaver hundreds of years ago as the totem of their tribe. Native peoples used the beaver emblem to sign treaties with the first colonists. Since then the beaver has appeared in the heraldic bearings of Québec City and Montreal and even marked Canada's first postage stamp. The beaver coin design was created by Canadian artist G.E. Kruger Gray and was first used in 1937.

The obverse design depicts the portrait in right profile of Elizabeth II, when she was 64 years old. It is surrounded with the inscription "ELIZABETH II D • G • REGINA". The "P" mint mark sits under the bust.

This coin depicts a beaver with a wood log, over the inscription "CANADA". It is surrounded with the facial value, flanked on both sides by a maple leaf.
