An exciting new take on circulation coin designs! Order today!

A beaver, a lake, maple leaves… iconic scenes like this 1937 design have informed Canada's self-image for decades. Here, though, the beaver from Canada's 5-cent circulation coin takes on a life of its own. Designed within the shape of its own silhouette—rather than a traditional circular coin shape—this collectible has been carefully crafted for consistent weight without altering the shape, detail or proportions of the original subject. Part of a low-mintage 6-coin series!

Crafted in more than 3 ounces of pure silver, your coin is a fun take on a Canadian icon! Order today!

Special features:
  • WOW! This uniquely shaped coin is the third of the Royal Canadian Mint's 6-coin series of intricately shaped pure silver coins featuring iconic coin designs transcending their circular boundaries.
  • SELECTIVE 24KT GOLD PLATING! Your coin is accented with 24kt gold plating!
  • FUN PACKAGING! Your coin comes packaged in a fun display case that highlights the uniqueness and beauty of your coin. And the special shaped capsule showcases your coin's silhouette.
  • LOW MINTAGE! Limited to 1,200 coins worldwide.

This coin has been specifically designed for consistent weight while also ensuring that the subject remains unaltered from the original in detail and proportions. From the 1937 5-cent coin reverse, the scene depicts a beaver standing on a rock surrounded by water. The image is portrayed within its own silhouette. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know…

  • Prior to 1922, the 5-cent piece was a sterling silver coin of very small size—smaller than the present-day dime—giving it the nickname "fish scale." In 1922, the composition switched to pure nickel, lending the coin its new moniker, the "nickel."
  • Between 1942 and 1963, Canadian nickels had 12 sides.

Your coin comes packaged in a fun display case that highlights the uniqueness and beauty of your coin. And the special shaped capsule showcases your coin's silhouette.
