Double dated ("1870 – 2020") to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Canada's first national coinage, the reverse is a reproduction of Leonard C. Wyon's crossed maple boughs design surmounted by St. Edward's Crown, as seen on the four denominations (5, 10, 25 and 50 cents) of coins issued by the Dominion of Canada in 1870. The obverse features the "laureate" effigy of Queen Victoria by Leonard C. Wyon, as it appeared on the historic 5- and 10-cent coins.

Did you know…
  • Seen on this coin's obverse, Leonard C. Wyon's portrait of Queen Victoria was inspired by the "Young Head" effigy (1838-1895) designed by his father, William Wyon (1795-1851), former Chief Engraver at The Royal Mint.
  • The maple bough arrangement looks symmetrical but it actually has 21 leaves: 11 on the left and 10 on the right. A 22-leaf wreath was introduced in 1882.

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