Set Description:

George VI was the unlikely King who steered the Commonwealth through World War II. Traditionally the Canadian nickel in this era had the new beaver on a log with the date surrounded by ๐Ÿ. The coin is a sculpture and work of art. During WW II, a victory nickel was created. It had the large V for victory and a torch to remind Canadians tp fight through until the light brings back victory. The torch is light and hope. After the war, the nickel went back to the iconic beaver.
