The 1951 five-cent coin is the fourth in the six-coin Legacy of the Canadian Nickel series

Throughout its history, each of the nickel’s transformations provides a glimpse of a young nation that was seeking to define itself, and a Mint that would come into its own. This Legacy of the Canadian Nickel series is a retrospective look at the history of 5-cent coins issued by the Royal Canadian Mint; it continues with the 1951 five-cent coin design that commemorated the 200th anniversary of the identification of nickel as an element.

A great gift for collectors of Canadiana-, history-themed and circulation coins! Order today!

Special features:
•  The 1951 five-cent coin is the fourth within the six-coin Legacy of the Canadian Nickel series, which revisits the previous 5-cent coin designs that were produced by the Royal Canadian Mint throughout its history.
•  Each coin within the series offers a detailed re-creation of the original design, while multiple finishes and expert sculpting further enhance the image by adding more depth.
•  Meticulous attention to detail includes the effigy of the reigning monarch at the time of each coin’s original issue date.
•  This coin’s 40-millimetre diameter makes it double the size of the original, allowing for a larger canvas to showcase the intricate design.
•  This proof coin is 99.99% pure silver, with selective gold plating.
•  Your coin is GST/HST exempt.

About the Design:
The reverse image features Stephen Trenka’s 1951 commemorative nickel design, which was originally engraved by the Mint’s legendary master engraver, Thomas Shingles. Here, the original 12-sided coin design has been enhanced thanks to multiple finishes and selective gold plating, which bring added depth and definition to the iconic image. With its long smoke stack rising up in the centre, the nickel refinery is beautifully rendered with finely detailed engraving, as are the three maple leaves below it. The reverse is engraved with is the word “CANADA” and the face value “5 CENTS”, while the original commemorative dates have been updated to reflect the current year “2015.” The obverse features T.H. Paget’s effigy of King George VI, who was the reigning monarch at the time of the coin’s issue.

Packaging:
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.

      This is a beautiful coin. I appreciate the fine detail and its size, which is considerably larger than the original 1951 nickel.

        Great as memorabilia. I remember these nickels when I was young .. haven't seen one in circulation for many years. Re created very nicely.
