- A classic. This 5 oz. pure silver version of the 5-cent piece features British artist G.E. Kruger-Gray’s iconic beaver design. With only a few notable exceptions, the image has appeared continuously on Canadian “nickels” since 1937.
- Silver and gold, together on one coin. New for 2019: Reverse gold plating adds a warm-toned gleam that creates a beautiful contrast next to the silver shine of the engraved relief.
- Lower mintage. Mintage has been lowered from 1,500 to 1,250 in 2019—the lowest ever for the popular Big Coin Series, which has a history of selling quickly.
