1936 Dot Canada 25-cents Very Good (VG-8)

Dot Variety: In 1937, while the Royal Canadian Mint was awaiting the arrival of the master tools for the new coinage for George VI, an emergency issue of 25-cent pieces occurred to satisfy the urgent demands for this denomination. To mark the special nature of the coinage, the dies bore a small raised dot on the reverse under the wreath. That such an emergency issue had even taken place was not commonly known until the 1940s, when collectors began noticing that some of the 25-cent pieces dated 1936 had a dot under the wreath.
