2012 Canada $5 Georgina Pope Fine Silver Coin (TAX Exempt)

This special coin celebrates the legacy and achievements of Georgina Fane Pope, a pioneer of Canadian nursing whose work helped to pave the way for Canadian women in the military.

This $5 Silver Coin is 99.99% fine silver with a weight of 23.17 grams and a diameter of 36.07 millimetres. The reverse image by Canadian artist Laurie McGaw features four portraits. In the foreground, on the left side of the coin's reverse field, is a frontal portrait of Georgina Pope. Viewed from the shoulders up, Pope appears in her military cap and uniform, the Royal Red Cross she received from Queen Victoria pinned proudly to her left lapel. Behind her and on the right side of the image, three military women from the last century whose careers Pope helped to pioneer appear in three-quarter profile. In the far background appears a nurse from the First World War dressed in the nursing uniform of that era, derived from a nun's habit and including a dress, apron, and veil. In front of her stands a saluting female member of the Women's Royal Canadian Naval Service from the Second World War in the cap and uniform of that era. In front of the second woman stands a fatigue-clad female member of Canada's military today. The reverse is engraved with the word 'CANADA,' the date '2012,' and the face value of '5 DOLLARS.' The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
