Add this historic quarter from Canada to your collection! Struck in 80% silver from 1948-1952, the obverse depicts King George VI – who ruled the United Kingdom and Commonwealth from 1936 until his death in 1952. In 1939, shortly after his accession to the throne, the British Empire and many of the Commonwealth countries declared war on Nazi Germany – eventually leading to World War II.

As difficulties increased, George VI shared in the hardships alongside his nation, and his popularity soared. The king and queen persevered through the bombing of Buckingham Palace during the Blitz, and King George VI became a symbol of Britain’s determination to win the war. The quarter’s reverse features a Caribou – a member of the deer family that frequents Canada. A historic and interesting addition to your world coin collection – order now!
