All coins from the Royal Canadian Mint’s Legacy of the Canadian Nickel series are now available.
The six 2015-dated coins, struck in 1-ounce of 99.99% pure silver with selective gold plating, feature the original imagery as found on Canadian Nickels since 1908. That includes both their unique reverses and obverse effigies of the reigning monarch at the time of each nickel’s original issue date. Series coins also feature a 40-mm diameter, which is twice as large as the original nickels.
Legacy of the Canadian Nickel silver coins are available individually or as part of a six-coin subscription. The coins include:
- #1 – The Crossed Maple Boughs
- #2 – Two Maple Leaves
- #3 – The Victory
- #4 – The Identification of Nickel
- #5 – The Centennial 5-cent Coin
- #6 – The Beaver
Obverse effigies feature likenesses of King George V, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth II.
