Canadian, "Godless" and "Godly" pair of cents

Many will have heard of the “Godless florin” in 1849, but perhaps not as many will know that something similar happened in Canada in 1911. The “Dei Gratia” part of the legend on the obverse side was removed from Canadian coins in 1911, the first year of issue for the new King George V. This caused such a public uproar over the “godless” coins that it was reinstated on Canadian coinage the following year. We have a small number of these interesting coins available in Very Fine condition, which we can off er along with one of the more “godly” large cents issued between 1912 and 1920.
