2015 5-cent Legacy of the Canadian Nickel The Crossed Maple Boughs Fine Silver Proof (TAX Exempt) 135338

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 quickly come into its own. This Legacy of the Canadian Nickel series is a retrospective look at the history of 5-cent coins minted by the Royal Canadian Mint, beginning with this crossed maple bough design that was used until 1921.

This 5-cent coin is 99.99% pure silver, with a diameter of 40 millimetres and a metal weight of 31.83 grams. The reverse image features a recreation of William Henry James Blakemore's design, which graced the 5-cent coin from 1911 to 1921. Finely detailed engraving and selective gold plating recreate St. Edward's Crown, the solid gold coronation crown, as it appeared on the original coin design. New sculpt and finishes bring added definition to the crossed bough of 22 maple leaves. Featured on the reverse is the effigy of King George V, who was the reigning monarch from 1910 to 1936.
