3 Canadian Commemorative 5 Cents
This little set contains three different commemorative Nickels or 5 Cent coins from Canada. Their first is a World War II coin struck in tombac or a brass coloured metal like the old Brass Threepence. It has the ‘V’ for Victory on one side and King George VI on the other side, it is dated 1943. The second coin is very similar except that it is struck in steel again with the Victory sign but dated 1944. The third coin in the set is dated 1951 and is for the 200th anniversary of the finding of Nickel in Canada 1751-1951. Canada has a large deposit of nickel which is commercially mined and sold world wide. The set of three commemorative Nickels are all King George VI, all in Very Fine condition and all now not so easy to find. You get all three pieces for just £6.95.
