Queen Elizabeth II was the longest-reigning monarch in Canada’s modern history, and our most minted one. All four appear on the obverse and reverse of this 5 oz. 99.99% pure silver coin, which presents an elegant retrospective of the Canadian coin effigies of “Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God of the United Kingdom, Canada and Her other Realms and Territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith.”
The reverse design features the Royal Cypher of Queen Elizabeth II, surrounded by the effigies that have appeared on Canadian coins during her reign (clockwise from the right): the 2003-2022 effigy Susanna Blunt; the 1990-2002 effigy by Dora de Pédery-Hunt; the 1965-1989 effigy by Arnold Machin; and the 1953-1964 effigy by Mary Gillick. Behind the effigies are symbols representing Canada (the maple leaf) and the United Kingdom (the shamrock for Ireland, the thistle for Scotland, the Tudor rose for England and the daffodil for Wales), entwined with acanthus leaves.
Double dated to commemorate Queen Elizabeth II’s historic reign, the tribute obverse is marked by a Tudor rose and features the same four effigies that grace the coin’s reverse.
