2014 Canada $5 Princess to Monarch Fine Silver (No Tax) 132679 -

As the UK's longest-reigning monarch, Elizabeth II's role as queen was undoubtedly shaped by her experiences as a princess during the Second World War. A young 18-year old woman at the time, Princess Elizabeth was eager to make a positive contribution and joined the Auxiliary Territorial Service where she served as a mechanic and military truck driver. She was the first female member of the Royal Family to become a full-time, active member of the military, and in doing so, gained a unique perspective on the demands of such service. The impact of these personal experiences would later be reflected in the manner in which the princess inspected troops; with reverence, deep appreciation, understanding and support.

The reverse image presents Canadian artist Trevor Tennant's interpretation of a photograph by The Canadian Press featuring Princess Elizabeth inspecting the troops during a royal visit to Fredericton, New Brunswick, in 1951.
