2005 First Day Cover 25-Cent Coin
For over 50 years now, the 25-cent coin has depicted the caribou, an ideal representative of Canadian wildlife. This gregarious, curious animal is a familiar sight in northern Canada, travelling in bands of ten to fifty- and in herds of up to 100,000 during migration. From 1968 until 2000, the 25-cent coin was made of nickel, then its composition was changed to nickel plated steel. This coin is housed in a colourful illustrated folder.
