STUNNING! G.E. Kruger-Gray’s 5-cent design makes the leap to a 5 oz. coin!

An official emblem of Canada since 1975, the beaver’s use as a cultural motif dates back hundreds of years—long before G. E. Kruger-Gray’s design made its debut in 1937. From 1858 to 1921, the Canadian 5-cent piece featured the same reverse image as other coinage used in Canada during that period: two crossed maple boughs topped with a crown. In 1937, the Royal Canadian Mint introduced G.E. Kruger-Gray’s beaver design as part of a modernization effort, and with a few notable exceptions, it has been used continuously on Canadian “nickels” ever since.

Today, G.E. Kruger-Gray’s 5-cent piece is one of sevendesigns to make the leap to a 5 oz. coin—part of our reverse gold-plated tribute to Canadian circulation coins past and present.
