Since 1908 England's reigning Monarch has graced one side of all Canadian coins minted at the Royal Canadian Mint.
It is these Monarchs who gracefully rest on the face of each Canadian nickel:
1902 and 1910 it is the image of Edward Vll
1911 to 1936 it is the image of George V
1937 to 1952 it is George V1
1953 to present day it is Queen Elizabeth.
