This Canadian Five Cents Coin was minted from 1944 – 1950 and is known as the Victory Nickel. It is our very newest Canadian Coin is a personal favorite. The coin features a Roman Numeral V with a Staff in the middle of the V. We Also hand Cut the Words Canada as well as the two Maple Leaves and Nickel on the bottom part of the Coin. One other thing that makes this Coin unique is that it was minted in an octagon shape instead of being round like most Coins.This is a great piece for someone looking for a nice piece from Canada to wear or give as a gift. It is finished in 14 Karat Gold and Rhodium plating and comes with a 14 Karat Gold plated Snake Chain that is perfect for this Pendant.
