2005 First Day Cover 5-Cent Coin
The beaver design on the 5-cent coin was first used in 1937. Widely recognized as an emblem of Canada, the beaver has adorned the shield of the Hudson's Bay Company, the armorial bearings of Quebec City and the city of Montreal, Canada's first postage stamp and countless commercial products. Made of cupro-nickel from 1982, its composition was changed to nickel plated steel in 2000. This coin is housed in a colourful illustrated folder.
