1955 Canada 5 Cents Roll (Circulated)
5 Cents - Elizabeth II, Laureate Bust (1953 - 1964)
The initial design of the new Queen (obverse) for the 1953 issue had a high relief, laureate portrait which did not strike well on the coins. Later that year, the relief was lowered and the hair and shoulder detail re-engraved. Most popularly among the changes were the two lines at the shoulder, representing a fold in the gown dubbed later as 'shoulder fold (SF)' and 'no shoulder fold (NSF)'. There is another notable change in the positioning of the legend in line with the rim denticles and in letter styling.
Coin depicts the Laureate Bust design of Queen Elizabeth II with the Latin inscription:
ELIZABETH II DEI GRATIA REGINA meaning "Elizabeth II, by the grace of God, the Queen
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.
